The Class comprised568 students from diverse backgrounds and work experience ranging from 2 to 20 years.


Announcing the placements results, Ajit Rangnekar, Dean, ISB, said, “I am humbled by the confidence that companies have reposed in us once again, by choosing ISB students to augment their talent pool. Our students come with a rich and diverse experience, and their transformational year at the ISB has helped them to boost their capabilities and move along their chosen career paths. I am sure that this class too will make us proud by making an impact on business and society.”


This is the ninth year that the ISB is using the Rolling Placements System and the successful placements year on year are a proof of its acceptance by the industry. The system is a lateral hiring process that is spread over several months, giving both the recruiters and the students, time to find the best fit. During this period, the school also supported and encouraged students in their independent search efforts to find their preferred careers. The result was an increase in the number of offers and the variety of roles that that were offered to the students. Going forward, the ISB will continue this model of an extended rolling placement period, to ensure that every student is given time and independence to help find their preferred careers.


This year, 346 leading companies including domestic and international participated in the placements (Partial list of recruiters this year provided in Appendix). The Class of 2010 also witnessed a 33% increase in the number of offers over last year as companies chose the ISB students for a variety of roles including several senior management positions. Overall, the salaries offered to the Class of 2010 increased by 11% over last year. Further, the average outgoing salary was more than double the incoming salary.

The number of offers made by the top 10 companies from Technology , Consulting and Finance increased by 116, 40 and 30 percent respectively over the last year, making them the largest recruiters on campus this year. Pharma, Healthcare, Infrastructure, Real Estate, Media and Energy were some of the other sectors chosen by the Class of 2010. This year also witnessed a spurt in the number of companies from the ‘Green Energy’ sector.
