FPM Waiver for PGSEM Students

The PGSEM Students Affair Council (SAC) has just sent this very good piece of news for students that just cannot get enough of studies:
The IIMB faculty has just approved the following for the PGSEM alumni:
Any PGSEM alumni who is interested in pursing the FPM program will get the same exemptions and waivers that are currently applicable only to the PGP alumni. That is henceforth, PGSEM and PGP alumni who graduated on or after 1997 (for FPM 2007 admissions), with a minimum CGPA of 2.75 are exempted from taking CAT and also the first year of course work.
Happy learning! Now if IIMB would only allow students to enroll in the FPM on a part time basis... I am sure there are at least a few people out there who would like to pursue doctoral level studies and research but cannot do so because of the full-time requirements of the program; cannot afford to be not earning for the entire 3-4 year duration of the FPM. There are scholarships available, but not enough of them. Infosys for example provides a scholarship to some FPM candidates who pursue a doctoral thesis in an IT related subject. The amount of the scholarship is more than Rs 10,000 per month or so I think... Something to think about, eh?

yup thats good news. but, if u see the ad for fpm in the papers, the waiver is only mentioned for PGDM's from IIMB. Wonder if that explicitly means PGSEM as well.

It was a mistake in the ad. It should have explicitly mentioned PGSEM as well. I Have spoken to the FPM chairperson, and he will be sending out an e-mail to all the PGSEM alumni.

Chairperson - PGSEM
