Why should I pursue a research degree?
A Doctoral degree allows for greater mastery over a subject not just in terms of learning but also knowledge creation. There is a growing need for research skills everywhere. It's both about attitude and skill.
Should I go for FPM or PhD?
FPM and PhD are different only in terms of nomenclature, but not in rigour or the opportunity they present. While PhD is awarded by Universities, autonomous colleges offer FPM which is equivalent to PhD if the institute is recognized by AIU (FIIB is recognized by AIU). A doctorate degree is known worldwide by many names like FPM, DBA, etc.
Should I opt for a Full-time or part-time course?
Both full-time and part-time are equally rigorous, with their own sets of advantages and have their unique set of challenges. A full-time scholar, unlike popular myth, works as hard as part-time scholars engaging in institutional activities. Whatever one chooses, there has to be consistency, commitment, calm, communication and creativity in the performance throughout the course of the programme. FIIB offers both full time (FPM) and part time (EFPM).
Is there a stipend or scholarship available?
The Doctoral Programme at FIIB offers a stipend of Rs 25,000/month for the first two years and Rs 28,000 for the 3rd year to scholars who pursue a full-time Programme (FPM).
