What are the focus areas of your collaborations with International Institutions and how beneficial will it be for students here?

FORE School of Management embarked upon effort at building international networks a few years back and has now redoubled its effort to have the widest possible network of partner institutions. We have broad-based MoUs/bi-lateral agreements with following institutes which, inter-alia, include exchange of students:

• ESC Rennes School of Business, France

• Savannah State University, College of Business Administration (COBA), Georgia, USA

• Faculty of Business, University of New Brunswick (UNB), Canada

• Asian Institute of Technology, Thailand

• Northampton Business School, University of Northampton, UK

• Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge, UK

During 2012-13, all first year students of FORE School of Management, New Delhi had International Immersion Programme either at Nanyang Business School (NBS), Nanyang Technological University, Singapore or The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong.

The students of PGDM–IB were taken to NBS where the module was customised to session on international trade and business management. To make it practical, the study tour included a visit to the international port at Singapore. The students of PGDM, on the other hand, were taken to Faculty of Business, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong. The focus was on functional aspects of business management in a world class international location. The tour also included a visit to two local business and industrial organisations.

India is one of the world’s fastest-growing economies, and its huge market presents opportunity for thousands of companies, how are you preparing your students to work in such a dynamic and international market?

India’s latent entrepreneurship potential lies untapped because of life skills that aren’t taught and social expectations that aren’t set right. In this era of globalisation, it is important for the businesses to cope up and work with the changing market forces to be ahead of their competitors. In the changing market scenario, it is equally important for management schools to change their curricula according to the market demands. Today, organisations are demanding highly skilled MBA grads with lot of analytical abilities hence, students must ensure to map it on the requirements of different industries.

At FORE School of Management, we are driven by employers demand and we shape up our students in such a way that they are becoming employable and getting selected for the industry. Our systems are intact and we have inbuilt standards of getting mix and match between passing out student and industry. Eminent personalities and senior corporate professionals are invited from time to time to share their experiences and discuss real world managerial practices and market opportunities/challenges with the students.

What are your future plans for the Institution?

By 2014, we are planning to expand in a big way in the immediate future. We are planning to inaugurate a new building inside the existing campus, New Delhi.

Any message you would like to give to students/readers.

Focus on ‘Learning’ and not answering. With clear learning, smart ‘Answering’ will automatically happen. So, start preparing for CAT at home at least six months ahead of CAT. Ultimately have a ‘Learning Attitude’ for success in all you do. Change is inevitable. So adapt to the change and the winner will be the one who act smartly. Put the best effort with continuous hard work and practice. Quest for knowledge is needed at this time.
