Faculty of Management Studies (FMS), Delhi University
The FMS Information Technology Group seeks to keep the institute at the forefront of technology applications in management education.
USP: The admission results of the students are processed technologically. During the second level of selection, i.e, through group discussions and interviews, the scores are tracked digitally and FMS brings out the results within two hours after the completion of the last interview. Within three hours the results are displayed on the website. No other management institute does this in India, adds Prof Mamkootam

“We have been using IT ever since the founding years of MDI. Technology has been integrated into all aspects of the course content to include quizzes, presentations, examination and evaluation systems and all administrative activities,” says Prof. B S Sahay, Director, MDI.
USP: For attendance records, a time clock is set for teachers and students, ensuring that all reach their classes on time. Attendance is not registered for those who are late, thereby maintaining punctuality and accountability. All administrative matters including leaves, attendance, salaries, PF accounts, transport bookings are done online. Every staff member can access their records online in these matters. The institute website is being updated with the latest in technology. Online Learning and Teaching (OLT) provides a means to students to access and view grades, online feedback, selection of electives and attendance.
The rapid development of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) and the move towards more knowledge-intensive, interdependent and internationalised societies have created new challenges and opportunities for the design and delivery of education in India.
