IIM-Calcutta wraps up final placements within four days

Students with work experience found 15 new takers at the recently concluded placement season in Indian Institute of Management-Calcutta (IIM-C). Lateral placements — for students having a work experience of at least 10 months — saw companies like Sovereign Wealth Fund amongst those that recruited exclusively from IIM-C, the final placement report of the institute, said.

Amongst the tech-majors which recruited from the campus this year, Microsoft made nine offers, followed by Infosys with five. Google, Accenture and Genpact were amongst the other IT companies that went for recruitment.
E-commerce sites like Amazon, Snapdeal, Zynga, Jabong anf Flipkart also recruited from IIM-C.

According to the report, IIM-Calcutta wrapped up its final placements process for the 352-odd batch within four days, compared to the usual five days. The finance sector saw top financial organisations like Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Capital One, Zurich Financial Services making offers for recruitment to their offices in Hong Kong, Dallas (Texas), Zurich and New York.

While nearly 29 per cent of the total placements have been in the finance sector, consulting placements accounted for nearly 27 per cent. Sales and marketing accounted for nearly 23 per cent of the offers, the report stated.
