Let me welcome you to this garden of knowledge known as Farook Institute of Management Studies (FIMS), promoted by Farook College and is one of the best B-Schools in Kerala. Situated in the historic campus of Farook College known as the Aligarh of South India which has been the centre stage of educational renaissance of the state, especially the Malabar region for last 75 years.
FIMS is a unique experience. To be a FIMSian and to live in this campus for a couple of years has been a life changing experience for all those students who made it their choice. They learn to manage every challenges in life from this unique experience blended with knowledge, hands on experience and ethics. We believe in experiential teaching and learning methods to impart practical problem solving skills to our budding managers. The perfect blend of case study methods, team activities, live projects, corporate interfaces, club activities, internships and part-time jobs apart from classroom sessions helps them to transform into practical managers within two years.
Entrepreneurship also has been our major focus for the last few years which has given birth to a full-fledged Business Incubation Hub in the campus for campus start-up initiatives. Our students have already started incubating start-up companies at our Incubation Hub.
We are proud of our alumni who are spread across the globe managing some of the renowned multi-national companies, organisations, institutions and government departments.
Our latest addition has been an MDP Block offering Executive Program in Management known as FIMS EPM which is a one year course for entrepreneurs, experienced professionals and business owners. At MDP Block we also provide customised staff training programs for corporate houses, government departments and non-government organisations.
FIMS Business Consulting Initiative (FBCI) is another initiative by the institution to provide business consulting services to firms and companies in the area of business strategy, market research, human resource, financial management and other specific areas based on the requirement. Our pool of faculty members with immense experience in industry and teaching have already earned their name as seasoned consultants for many specific areas.
Students also get a chance to be part of the consulting team along with faculty members in the campus and experience live cases apart from interacting with business owners, practicing managers and other stake holders. The faculty student relationship at our campus is truly unique which is beyond the conventional models followed in other campuses. The out-bound trainings, campus celebrations, international study tours, industrial visits and evening camps at campus adds to the flavour of campus life of our team.
Various events like FIMS CANVAS the national management festival, FIMS WAVES the talk show, FIMS QUEST the national business quiz, FIMS TABREZ the sports event, FIMS LA-FERIA the arts festival etc gives every student an opportunity to organise and manage events apart from exhibiting their talents.
All these activities apart from quality future proof academics helps in the transformation of young minds into dynamic global managers capable of handling any future challenges.
Let me once again invite all the aspiring managers, entrepreneurs, business owners and the entire business fraternity to this unique experience of being a FIMSian.
