"We are a small College with a big heart."
The foundation of this humble college was laid way back in the year 2008. Based in the heart of the suburban regions, amidst lush green surroundings, FIN a multi-cultural college aims to inspire students to become creative professionals and connect them to exciting and rewarding careers.
In a short span of over less than a decade, the college has widened its horizon and changed the conventional norms of teaching to bring about a truly holistic and analytical system of learning.
The College has a range of highly qualiﬁed staff, with a wealth of experience in their respective disciplines, and strong connections with key industries. The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team that is guided by Dr. S. Narayani who has the innate capacity to translate vision into reality.
A great academic institution is never born; it is created. Teachers forming the pillars, the pursuit of academic excellence being the cementing blocks, a committed management being the protective roof, and ‘harmony’ its corner stone. The College has been founded with this vision, and my endeavor is to create this climate of harmony and excellence so that students from this institution contribute proactively towards bettering the world around them. We encourage personal expression and celebrate experimentation by every learner. Besides doing well academically, our graduates go on to achieve great success in their chosen disciplines and professions.
We aim to be one, by the equality of our actions and the integrity of our intent. You can enter freely and of your own free will to be a part of this ambitious family.

Hum Hai FIN ke naujavan ..2
Tyag hamara praan hai seva mein hamari jaan
Maan main Maa ka pyar hai aur karuna jaladhi samaan
Hum Hai FIN ke naujavaan
Shastronse karke anumaan, Chinta ka rehta nahi nishaan
Kushalta ki yeha pehchaan, seva mein lagan hamaari shaan
Hum Hai FIN ke naujavan
Ishkrupa ki varsha saath,seva vrat yeha din aur raat
Visheshtaa ke din aaj, shrama seva ki hum lenge aan
Hum Hai FIN ke naujavan
Sartha hamare jeevan se, Garva se keheneka hai bhaan
Hum Hai FIN ke naujavan..2
FIN ke naujavan..3
