Comments from Placement Chairperson
“We are quite pleased that the placements showed qualitative improvement as well. Many graduates were successful in shifting to industry, roles or functions of their choice. For programs such as MBA Ex, this shift is trickier compared to getting jobs,” Prof Abhishek Goel, Chairperson- CDPO at IIM Calcutta, said.
“Most importantly, 95% of the class had confirmed offers by February 2019 indicating strong demand for IIMC’s talent. The class had 61 offers extended from across industries,” he added.
“The hard work of the students, faculty and the institute has resulted in a wonderful outcome for our MBAEx graduates,” Prof Goel said.
IIM Calcutta’s one-year residential program for executives, PGPEx, was renamed as MBAEx in April 2019 with the institute acquiring the power to grant degree certificates instead of diplomas under the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Act 2017 that granted a fair amount of autonomy to the IIMs.
In sector-wise placements, 47.55% came from IT Consulting, 14.76% from IT Products & Services, 9.85% from E-commerce, 8.19% from General Management, 6.56% from Manufacturing, 4.91% from FMCG, 3.27% each from Banking and Logistics, 1.67% from Automotive. Source: IIM Calcutta
