IIM Calcutta – Placements Overview

IIM Calcutta Placements 2019

Any B-school takes great pride in the placements its students are able to secure. Like any top management school, the students of IIM Calcutta have proved their mettle again and again. Popularly known as the Finance campus of India, IIM Calcutta has retained this title for many years now in a row.

Why Does IIMC Stand Out

IIMC offers a comprehensive curriculum and a huge number of choices of electives as part of its MBA programmes. Also it was the first B-school in India to start a course on Fixed Indian Market. Students are given options and choices based on their interests and these help them to prepare and plan for their career exclusively. All the management programs are made relevant as per the latest economic and business trends and fine tuned to meet the continuous changes in the market.  This kind of an environment makes sure that students of IIMC stand out when it comes to things like career choices and placements.
