  • Mr. Dhruv Bansal
    Batch: FMG 20

    Profile: Ecommerce Product Manager- Lenovo.

    It was the year 2010 when I wrote CAT and after having cleared a few PIs, had to decide which institute to choose from. FORE, with its substantial alumni network and the proximity to the Corporate hub of Gurgaon and Noida, meant that it will not have dearth of exposure. And I was not wrong.

  • Mr. Ankur Bhatia
    Batch: FMG 18

    Profile: Team Manager Product Strategy- Royal Enfield.

    My time at FORE was spent oscillating between 3 things I love a lot - Marketing, Cricket and Food. I had immense learning in Freda ma'am's classes and could never have enough of them. When I look back, working on assignments with people who became my closest friends are memories for a lifetime. FORE also gave me ample opportunity to play Cricket and to compete not just within the college but also outside it. The best 6 days of my life were spent with my fellow teammates competing for 2 years at Chakravyuh, the inter-college sports tournament.
