Dr Kalam Office becomes a recruiter at IIM Ahmedabad Agri Business summers program
The Post Graduate Programme in Agribusiness Management kicked off its summer placement process for the first year students on November 14th. By November 15th afternoon, the entire process was completed.
As many as 23 companies participated in the selection process, which included regular recruiters like Rabobank, Monsanto, Marico, Bayer CropScience, Syngenta, Heinz, Britannia, Godrej Agrovet, and Tata Rallis. This year, the placements also attracted new recruiters like Netafim, Tata Amalgamated Plantations, Enercon India and Huvepharma SEA, showing the increasing visibility of the programme.
A variety of roles were offered across sectors such as FMCG, Agricultural Inputs, Banking, Consulting, Renewable Energy, Food & Agribusiness Advisory, and Plantations. Huge diversity was seen in the internship roles offered to students, with one student getting an offer from the Office of Dr. Kalam in a role related to rural development, while others getting roles in Mergers and Acquisitions, Corporate Banking, and Supply Chain Consulting. Other functional roles ranged from Strategy, Marketing, Commodity Trading, Sales and Distribution, Supply Chain Management, Procurement, and Research and Advisory.
"We were successful in hiring Summer Trainees in a well-managed process. This is just the beginning of this relationship and we look forward to visiting the campus again," said the representatives from Netafim. “The quality of the students that we‘ve recruited from campus is of very high standard and we are glad to have them onboard,” mentioned Marico, a regular recruiter at IIMA.
