Futuristix Media Communication Centre (FMCC) held its second convocation on August 30, where the second batch of students was awarded their diplomas.

Speaking on the occasion, chief guest, Santosh Desai, President, McCann Erickson, said, “FMCC is an institute which lays emphasis on vision, imagination, intellectual development, hands-on experience, and engagement with the real world. The faculty encourages students to be self-motivated and self-directed, and provide guidance and support accordingly. Creative, personal and intellectual development is fused so that the process of education is a life-enriching experience and prepares students for a dynamic future.”

Sajal Mukherjee, Director, FMCC, announced the highlights of this year’s placements and convocation 2006. He informed that placements this year were 100 per cent as in the previous year and students had joined well-known organisations like NDTV, CNBC, Aaj Tak, Sony, Dentsu, Zenith Optimedia, GroupM, OMS, Mindshare, Lokmat, Dainik Bhaskar Group, Business Standard, Montage, and exchange4media, among others.

Former cricketer and media personality Kapil Dev, who was present at the Convocation congratulated the successful students and emphasised on the importance of great training and coaching and said that coaches and trainers created great performers and that FMCC was being a coach to media and advertising industry students.

Shamshir Rai Luthra, personality development guru, RJ and Visionary, Talking Rich Company felt that with a unique teaching methodology that combined academic learning with industry interface, FMCC graduates were the right talent for the industry.

Speaking on the occasion, Anurag Batra, MD and Editor-in-Chief, exchange4media Group, said that the media and advertising industry was growing at more than 500 per cent every year and that there was a paucity of trained professionals, therefore, FMCC graduates, who were ‘day one ready’, would do very well.
