This year’s placement season at the B-schools has started on the right note, with a host of B-schools reporting an uptick in the number of offers as well as average compensation package.

MDI Gurgaon has completed its final placements in 3.5 days, with a 28.4% jump in top salary to INR 32.1 lakh and a 12.4% increase in the average salary across three streams to Rs 18.53 lakh. The 333-strong batch of 2014-16 took a total of just 5.5 days to get placed.

Average compensation at IIFT has seen a tremendous increase of 24% over last year, at INR 18.01 lpa. The highest International compensation at IIFT saw a 36% increase over last year to USD 150,000 pa. The highest domestic package reported was INR 29 lpa, a significant rise of 21% over previous year’s highest. BFSI seems to be the preferred sector at IIFT this year, with 26% of the batch going for jobs in the sector.

SCMHRD had a robust season as well, as 20% of the MBA 2014-16 batch received Pre-Placement offers and Pre-Placement Interviews from prestigious business houses like Aditya Birla Group, Cisco, Deloitte Consulting, HUL. Their average CTC stood at INR 13.24 lpa at a time when 90% of the batch was placed. The students from the institute managed to land good placements across the functional areas.

At IMT Ghaziabad spokesperson stated “where we hardly got 21 offers crossing INR 15 lakh last year, we received 52 offers this year in that range. On day zero alone, we placed 241 students. We have got 19 offers crossing INR 20 lakh package”. Recruiters at IMT- Ghaziabad included KPMG, PwC, EY, Deloitte, Goldman Sachs, Google, Microsoft, and HSBC. Among them, Deloitte made 30 offers.

Other B-schools such as XLRI will begin the process in February. Overall, placement officials from B-schools said sentiments were positive because the manufacturing sector was expected to make a big comeback in campuses even as e-commerce firms look to hire in bulk.


B-schools across the country are seeing a tremendous run in placements season this year. The year began with increased salaries seen during the final placements, including IIM Ahmedabad's 20+ lakh per annum average salary. On the back of this, the summer placements have started on an extremely positive note. The B-schools are now having a problem of abundance as many companies are having to go back empty handed. Why? The B-school students are all taken within a day or two of the beginning of the season! This has been the situation at many top B-schools – MDI, IIFT, XLRI, IIM Kozhikode to name a few.

Consulting firms and investment banks are leading the pack while the e-commerce companies are giving them a stiff competition. Across campuses, in the ecommerce and startup space, those making offers included Amazon, Snapdeal, Hector Beverages, OYO Rooms, Homeland, Ziffi and Shop-Clues. International recruiters included the WTO and OECD.

The average stipend offered has grown by about 30-50% at the B-schools. JP Morgan Chase hiked its stipend to INR 5 lakh for the two-month period at XLRI, a 40% increment over previous year. Morgan Stanley offered INR 4 lakh at FMS, while BCG and Reckitt Benckiser offered around 3 lakh per annum at these campuses.

Along with the encouraging uptrend in the stipends, the companies are also making more offers. BCG, Microsoft, RPG, American Express, JP Morgan Chase, Deutsche Bank, Accenture Strategy, Asian Paints, HUL are a few companies that offered more internships compared to previous year.

Another trend which started off last year and is set to continue this season is the increase in number of Pre-Placement Offers. The BCG group spokesperson believes it is a win-win situation for both the student and the company as they can gauge each other. Around 80% of their summer interns were offered pre-placement offers by the firm last year.
