Placements 2006 @ K

The official teaser of a press release for Placements 2006 at IIMK goes as follows...

100% placement for IIM Kozhikode’s Class of 2006 was never a concern, but the sheer number of offers that flooded the placement season had the students floored with every student on the campus having multiple offers to choose from. A mind-numbing 415 offers were made to the 133 graduating students in the placement season this year! The best indicator of the success of a placement season is the “offers per student”, which stands at a spectacular 3.12 offers per student at IIM Kozhikode!

Companies made a beeline for the scenic Kunnamangalam campus vying to recruit top talent for their organizations. Offers were met by counter-offers as companies pulled out all stops to attract the best candidates!

47 PPO’s and PPI’s in a batch of 133 was a sign of things to come as industry reposed their faith in the capabilities of IIMK’s students yet again. Spoilt for choice, students were seen wracking their brains trying to decide between various lucrative offers in the best companies offering the choicest roles.

97 companies confirmed participation for the placement season this year (Lateral and Final placements), however, quite a few of these couldn’t recruit students because they were all already placed. Roles in Strategy Consulting, Corporate Finance, Private Equity, Investment banking, Equity Research, FMCG Sales and Marketing and Analytics found favor with the students.

New recruiters like Lehman Brothers India, Standard Chartered Bank, CTS, PwC (GRID) Consulting, Ernst & Young, Marico, Reliance Industries Ltd, Headstrong Consulting, Atos-Origin, The Times Group, Britannia, Dabur, Dell, Indus logic, RPG, Ocwen Financials, ICICI Prudential, Murugappa Group and ICICI Lombard, to name a few, were added to IIM Kozhikode’s already impressive list in a thumping display of the industry’s confidence. Regular recruiters like Deloitte Consulting, JP Morgan, Citigroup, GE Money, ITC, Asian Paints, Genpact, Wipro, Infosys, Kotak, TCS, IBM, HP, UTI Bank, Patni, HCL Technologies, CapGemini and CSC returned this year, reinforcing their long-standing commitment with IIM Kozhikode.

The mood on the campus was festive as two years of grueling coursework paid off in a fantastic placement season for the Batch of 2006.

A detailed report shall be made available as soon as the compilation of offers and acceptances are completed.

For any queries, please mail to placements@iimk.ac.in

My own take on the same and some random observations are in the presses. Stand by.
