After successfully crossing the first hurdle (the M.Des/ MFM/ M.F.Tech written entrance exam), aspirants have to appear for GDPI– the Group Discussions (GD) & Personal Interviews (PI).
These stages of the selection process give the selection committee a deeper insight into a candidate’s personality. During a GD a candidate’s understanding of the topic, attitude, self-confidence, presence of mind and leadership skills are put to the test.
Creating an impact within the limited time frame, under pressure, plays an important role here. Every candidate needs to be well prepared before facing the panelists. The perception that because NIFT is a fashion college so the topics for GD’s will revolve around fashion is not right.
Group discussions are organized to assess following skills,
* Communication skills, Interpersonal Skills, Leadership Skill, Motivational Skills, Team Building Skills, Analytical /Logical Skills, Reasoning ability, Different Thinking, Initiative, Assertiveness, Flexibility, Creativity, Ability to think on one’s feet.
