Is FMS Delhi better than IIM for MBA?

By AKSHAT | 07 December 2023

Faculty of Management Studies, Delhi was founded in 1954 and was the first institute in India to offer management training for professional managers. 

Both IIMs and FMS Delhi are highly regarded Indian business schools, known for their academic excellence and research focus. But IIMs have a slightly better reputation.

All top companies that go to top IIMs for placements also go to FMS Delhi. So opportunity wise both IIMs and FMS are the same. 

In the placement year 2023, the highest package at FMS Delhi is 123 LPA, while the average package is 34.1 LPA, which is comparable to any other top IIM.

IIMs will give you a great campus to explore but at the same time, they charge almost 10 times the fees of FMS Delhi. The total fees for MBA at FMS Delhi come to be around 200000 rupees. 

In terms of Return on Investment or ROI, FMS Delhi is far better than IIMs. 

One important thing to notice is that some IIMs will give you the opportunity to go abroad in foreign exchange programs which is not available at FMS.

Ultimately, the choice between FMS and IIM depends on your personal preferences, career goals, and the specific factors that matter most to you.
