FMS Delhi is one of India’s premier business schools. Like the IIMs, it’s government run, and admits students through the CAT exam. Also, it boasts of a good placement record, with many students netting high packages. Given how FMS’s fee is much lower than those of comparable B-Schools, it also presents a great Return on Investment through its MBA.
