GD-PI: Tips to Crack FMS Admission Process
For every MBA aspirant, the focus now is to crack the admission process, which includes the GD/WAT-PI rounds of IIM’s and top B-schools. The admission process of each B-School varies slightly, but the aspirants must accustom themselves with all the aspects of strategies required to be followed at each stage of the B-School admission process.
While you prepare yourself to tackle the admission rounds, it is utmost important that you know about the admission process of the B-School you have been shortlisted. Careers360 brings expert inputs on the selection process of Faculty of Management Studies- FMS Delhi. The Admission Committee of FMS shares their insights on how to tackle the GD/PI rounds of FMS and the key traits that the admission interview panel seek in the candidates at the PI stage.
The FMS Delhi Admission Committee members Dr. Amit Bardhan, Associate Professor, Operations and Dr. Madhu Vij, Professor, Finance reveals insights about the GD-PI process and their expectations from the future candidates.
Careers360: What are the qualities that are required in a candidate to tackle the FMS Delhi GD stage?
Dr. Amit Bardhan: A Group discussion is just a discussion or a conversation in a group about a particlular topic, and it must not be treated as a battle which is to be won. The first important quality is to be a good listener. It is important to address everyone in a group while speaking. Do not encourage formation of small groups, as it refelcts a negative quality of a leader or a manager. And the most important, note what is being spoken. If you don’t have a pen to note, remember the entire discussion on the topic in your mind.
Careers360: How one must tackle the GD of FMS Delhi?
Dr. Amit Bardhan: If you can develop the qualities required to tackle the GD, the process gets as simple as anything. If you get the opportunity, develop familiarity with members before the GD. Listen carefully to the Dos and Dont's announced at the beginning. Listen carefully and analyse what other participants are saying. You can get opportunity to demonstrate leadership quality by being a facilitator. For example, after you have put your points before the group, if you observe a member not being able to speak (getting a start and not allowed to continue) you may encourage him/her to complete his point.
Make your point whenever you get the opportunity or create one. It is not necessary to have a final word. If time permits summarising the key points discussed is a good idea.
Careers360: What are the key personality traits that the interview panel looks in a candidate during the Personal Interview rounds?
Prof. Madhu Vij: Getting admission to the best B-School is a difficult task, espicially our’s which has a history of acheivements. The key personality traits that the interview panel looks for in a prospective candidate are communication skills, interpersonal skills, confidence, self motivation and how genuinly a candidate answers to the panel. Be very clear about your goals and motivation during the interview process. The aim of the interview panel is to judge the clarity of your thought process and to know about your various accomplishments. If you have a hobby, come prepared – you could be asked on the same.
Careers360: What should be the strategy to clear the PI round of admission process?
Prof. Madhu Vij: The strategy to clear this round is to be confident, genuine, create the right first impression and above all read newspapers and magazines regularly.
Dr. Amit Bardhan: A good communicator would have an early advantage. The qualities that are valued in the PI rounds of FMS are intellectual curiosity, emotional stability, honesty and dependability. Lately candidates who value ethics and are aware of societal problems are preffered at our institution.
Careers360: What are the expectations of the FMS admission committe from the future students?
Dr. Amit Bardhan: In a student we would like to have an openness to new ideas and a strength and motivation to pursue new thinking. We also value ability and intent for critical analysis and objective evaluation.
