ICICI Bank was the largest recruiter at the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM-A) final placements’ third cluster today, with the number of its offers in double-digits.
The third cluster of the final recruitment process began last evening with group discussions and the interviews continued through the day on Sunday, a release from the institute stated. The cluster had companies in several cohorts such as Indian banking services, financial advisory services and credit rating agencies. Regular recruiters such as Icra, KPMG, Essar Group and Philips offered roles in finance, consulting, sales and marketing.
“The new process once again ensured smooth experience for both students and recruiters. Seamlessness prevailed despite a large number of recruiters visiting the campus this weekend. Recruiters are highly upbeat about their decision to hire at IIM-A. We hope the positive spell continues in subsequent clusters,” said Mansi Chitalia, media co-ordinator of the placement committee.
Cluster Two of final placements at IIM-A saw Indian investment banks, corporate leadership programmes and global FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) companies as prominent cohorts.
Deloitte made 10 offers (including lateral offers) for consulting roles. Tata Administrative Services and Feedback Ventures offered general management and consulting roles and hired six students each.
While other recruiters on campus during the second cluster were HUL, P&G, American Express, Standard Chartered and Nestle, Cluster One saw international investment banks and consulting agencies such as Boston Consulting Group and McKinsey & Co offer roles to students.
The new cohort-based placement process for the second year post-graduate programme (PGP) students, which began on February 13, will comprise companies that offer similar roles, profiles, salaries, locations, etc. The new process allowed recruiters to interact with students for a longer duration.
