Increased hiring marks ongoing Placements at the ISB

February 25, 2015: The ongoing Integrated rolling placements process at the Indian School of Business (ISB) with campuses at Mohali and Hyderabad, has seen a huge increase in demand from both traditional and new age recruiters with offers received to date seeing a 77 per cent rise over the offers received at the same time last year.  

Top Consulting firms like Accenture, Deloitte, KPMG, McKinsey, Parthenon, Vector Consulting and ZS Associates continue to recruit in large numbers from the School.  About 21% of the Class of 2015 will be joining Consultancy firms.

"Over the last seven years McKinsey alone has recruited over a hundred consultants from ISB. Firms like Deloitte recruit 30 to 40 students every year for global consulting roles", M Padmanaban, Director, Career Advancement Services said.

High Technology companies like Apple Inc.,Facebook, Google, Microsoft, IT products and solutions providers like Cognizant, Infosys and Wipro, and E Commerce companies like Amazon, Flipkart and Snapdeal also recruited in large numbers, contributing about  38% of the offers.

The emerging markets story is playing out strongly on the campus this year with several international offers being made. An interesting highlight of the international placements is the participation of companies from Africa.

With several ISB students having prior international work experience, combined with the learning of handling emerging markets, companies are keen to hire them for global positions. International roles offered include locations such as Singapore, China, the Middle East, Africa and Europe.

More offers are expected from marquee firms currently participating in the process in the coming weeks.The trends in the current placements season at ISB reflect the success of the ‘Integrated Placements’ process at the School. With a class size of ~760 students, the Post Graduate Programme in Management at ISB offers arguably the largest pool of top-notch experienced talent in Asia. The ISB follows a system of ‘Rolling Placements’, a lateral hiring process that is spread over several months, giving both recruiters and students time to find their best fit. During this period, the school also supports and encourages students in their independent search efforts to find their preferred careers.
