Pre-placement offers at the Indian Institute of Management-Calcutta (IIM-C) have started on a positive note, despite the sluggish economy. Till the first week of August, 58 such offers, including 11 pre-placement interviews, were recorded. Officials said this was higher than in the corresponding period last year.
At the end of last year’s season, 90 pre-placement offers were made to post-graduate students.
According to a statement by IIM-C, so far this year, management consulting firms have led the pack, both in the number of pre-placement offers, as well as in the rate of converting such offers.
The initial wave of offers includes those from Hindustan Unilever, Microsoft, Accenture Management Consulting, Royal Bank of Scotland, Aditya Birla Group and Flipkart.
M H Alshaya Co offered international pre-placement offers, based out of Kuwait, to all six of its IIM-C interns.
The top four management consulting firms alone offered 27 pre-placement offers (out of a total of 30 interns); their conversion rate was 90 per cent. McKinsey & Company and Bain & Company offered full-time positions to all their interns from IIM-C, making it the only business school to have a 100 per cent pre-placement offer conversion rate in these firms. While The Boston Consulting Group made 10 pre-placement offers, AT Kearney made four.
This initial wave of PPOs also includes offers from firms such as Hindustan Unilever, Microsoft, Accenture Management Consulting, Royal Bank of Scotland, Aditya Birla Group and Flipkart. M H Alshaya Co offered PPOs, international offers based out of Kuwait, to all its six IIM-C interns.
