IIM Calcutta PGPEX Placements: World class programme, world class offers
com/b-schools/indian-institute-management-iimc-calcutta">IIM Calcutta’s world-class executive programme, PGPEX has been exemplary. It is worth keeping in mind that overall the quality of offers has been pretty good. Offers have been made and accepted at the level of Director/VP/GM.
Contrary to the last year, this year the number of offers and participation of recruiters were higher with more diversified roles that the students were offered. The final placement was done for 37 students (Batch strength 44, while 5 students opted out of placement assistance, 1 student rejoined PSU with higher responsibility and 1 was a sponsored student). This year not only the job offers were more than last year, they were much more diverse too.
The sectors in which students got offers include Energy, Infrastructure, Operations, Healthcare, IT, Telecom, Business Consulting, Education, Logistics and Banking. The roles offered to PGPEX students ranged from mid to senior level with designations like Deputy General Manager, Assistant General Manager, Principal Consultant, Senior Business Development Manager, Manager (India). The 4th batch had some of the leading companies offering salaries ranging from INR 15.00 lacs to INR 28.00 lacs. The average and highest salary were INR 19.66 lacs and INR 28.00 lacs respectively.
This year the number of job offers was larger than that during the last year. The roles offered to PGPEX participants ranged from mid-to senior level with designations like Deputy General Manager, Assistant General Manager, Principal Consultant and Senior Business Development Manager. A total of 52 offers were made for 37 students, which included 4 in Finance, 12 in Consulting, 4 in Business Development and General Management, 16 in IT Consulting and Telecom, 4 in Corporate Strategy, 8 in Sales and Marketing and remaining 4 in other sectors.
The First time recruiters to IIM Calcutta’s PGPEX programme were CEB, Lava International, Shapoorji Pallonji Group, ABS, Carestream, Aricent Technologies and Bertling Logistics. The maximum number of offers was made by Cognizant Technology Solutions. Some of the other regular valued recruiters which participated include Goldman Sachs, Yahoo, Microsoft, Google, Cognizant, Lava International, PWC, Blue Star, Bertling Logistics, Amazon Consulting, iNautix and Carestream.
Interestingly ABS offer to one of IIM C students ensured to prove his mettle on entrepreneurial skill that he has developed through the PGPEX programme at IIM Calcutta.
In keeping with the last year’s trend, this year as well, PGPEX placements allowed students to leverage their past work experience and stay within the same sector or leverage the PGPEX programme to switch out of sectors. Finally, one student rejected a good offer to join a network security start-up. A swallow does not make the summer, but the PGPEX programme is about allowing people to make these kinds of choices. All in all a satisfying placement season that augurs well both for the programme as well as the 4th batch.
