The placements process at FMS, Delhi were conducted in two phases with the first one (Lateral Placements) being for students having prior work experience of more than 18 months and the second phase (Final Placements) for students with lesser/no work experience. To ensure a smooth and transparent process for both the recruiters and the students two important measures were put in place.
First, the students undertook a “Company Slotting” exercise to decide on the order in which the companies should visit the campus for recruitment.
