Placement Highlights from IIMs
In keeping with the example set by IIM Bangalore in not releasing the salary packages, as they are considered detrimental to the sanctity of individuals and corporate, IIM Lucknow also took a policy decision not to share salary details for its placement purposes.
As has been an IIML trend in the past, placements in the field of sales and marketing attracted the best organizations to the campus. Corporate such as P&G, Johnson & Johnson, Nestle, GlaxoSmithKline, Astro-Usaha Tegas Group, Tata Group, ITC, Pepsi, Coke, Dabur and Cadbury recruited students in large numbers to spearhead their marketing initiatives.
The Higher Entry Placement Programme (HEPP) saw a record of 123 offers, compared to 105 last year. Major recruiters in HEPP were KPMG Middle East, TSMG, Standard Chartered, PricewaterHouseCoopers, Trilogy, Goldman Sachs, Bristlecone, Headstrong Consulting, JP Morgan, Reliance Industries, Atos Origin and IBM.
Infosys offered the highest international posting of US $ 1,10,000.
IIM Indore witnessed 329 offers comprising 12 international offers from 67 companies, 29 of whom came to the campus for the first time.
More than 25% of the batch got into top-end consulting profiles, which ranged from general and strategic consulting to financial consulting including Basel II implementation norms to economic value-added, as well as business research for market development and entry strategy.
34 new companies were added to IIMK's impressive list of recruiters ensuring that the Class of 2007 signed out with offers of their choice. IIMK's increasingly impressive roster included McKinsey & Co, KPMG, Accenture Business Consulting, Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Barclays Capital, HSBC, Goldman Sachs, Yes Bank, Stern Stewart & Co, Google, Yahoo!, Colgate-Palmolive and Cadbury amongst others.
Global corporations like Citifinancial demonstrated immense faith in the quality of talent available at IIMK by recruiting 3 students for the post of Assistant Vice President - the highest number of offers across campuses for this role.
Cognizant (15 offers), JP Morgan Chase (13 offers), Deloitte (9 offers) and Accenture Business Consulting (5 offers) were the biggest recruiters on campus this year.
