The third cluster of companies visited IIM Ahmedabad on 22nd and 23rd February for Final Placements 2013. The pattern of recruitment followed was similar to Cluster two, in which companies conducted pre-interview processes on 22nd February in the form of group discussions and tests, and offers were extended following interviews today.

The third cluster consisted of five cohorts: Consulting Advisory, Consumer Goods & Services, Niche Financial Services, E-commerce and General Management.

The Consulting Advisory cohort consisted of firms such as Ernst & Young, KPMG, Cognizant Consulting and Asipac that recruited for their India offices. Asipac recruited seven students, which was the maximum number of offers for the cluster. Murali Balaraman, Partner – Advisory Services at Ernst & Young said “The entire recruitment process was extremely well co-ordinated by the Placement Committee. The diversity of candidates gave us the opportunity to choose from people with different backgrounds, and that is something we deeply appreciate about the recruitment experience at IIMA.”

Mars, one of the leading confectionary firms in the world was a first time recruiter at IIMA this year and was part of the consumer goods and services cohort. RPG and Ingersoll Rand recruited students for roles in general management. Firms such as JM Financial, Axis Bank, Yes Bank and Varhad Capital hired as part of the Niche Financial Services cohort.

The E-commerce cohort consisted of firms such as Naaptol, Caratlane and Juvalia which recruited students for a variety of profiles. Sachin Singhal, Head E-commerce for Naaptol India, said “We were looking to hire students for working in sales and marketing roles. We primarily look for business acumen in students and are extremely happy with the students we hired.”

The fourth cluster is scheduled to be conducted on March 2, 2013.
