Very briefly, it has been all about “overcoming the head winds”. The volatile economic conditions of 2013 – 14 have been posing a great challenge to the Centre for Corporate Relations (CCR), BIMTECH in placements.
However, owning to the concerted efforts of faculty, staff and students, considerable progress could be made with the situation looking decidedly very much better now than in the corresponding period of the previous year.
The campus process began on October 1st, 2013 as scheduled. Veteran regular recruiters like Deolitte, HDFC Ergo, TCS, TVS, Tata Chroma, IFFCO Tokkio, HCL Infosystems etc trooped in in October itself.
Other iconic recruiters like KPMG, Trident India, Kotak Mahindra, Blue Dart, S&P Capital IQ, IndusInd Bank, Maruti Suzuki, Dabur India, LG, Samsung, Ernst & Young, Philips, Adani Enterprises, TCS (BPS), Nerolac, Reckitt Benckiser, ICICI Bank, Titan Industries, Abbott and many more “dream companies” followed suit.
Segment-wise, the largest number of students were placed in the BFSI sector, followed by IT & ITeS, Manufacturing, Retail, Consultancy, FMCG, Market Research etc.
The compensation of profile of the highest Indian salary was Rs. 15 lacs CTC p.a; the highest foreign salary Rs. 19 lacs CTC p.a; the average salary Rs. 6.75 lacs CTC p.a. and the lowest salary Rs. 4.00 lacs CTC p.a.
The highest Indian salary of Rs. 15 lacs CTC p.a. was offered by M/S Trident India Limited which recruited from BIMTECH for the first time. Two of BIMTECH’s brightest students, Ms. Komalpreet Kaur (PGDM – Marketing) and Ms. Ishita BhupinderSingh Tuli (PGDM – Operations) made the cut here.
They competed against the very best from IIMs and other bespoke institutes. “It was one class room exercise on SCM and a case study that we did which came to my rescue. When the interviewer presented a very similar caselet and asked me to suggest a solution. I was on familiar territory.
The academic inputs received at BIMTECH were exceptionally good and I am grateful” said Ishita. Commenting on the episode, Prof. K.K. Krishnan, Chairperson, CCR, said that as faculty, he was thrilled to hear about such experiences from students, which in a way, redeems the profession! One eternal lesson: there is no substitute for rapt attention in the class and hard work.
