For the 7th batch of the collaborative course among IIM-Calcutta and IIT Madras and Kanpur there were 38 students (of which 6 were sponsored).

Daimler, Renault Nissan, TVS, Wheels India, L&T and Crane Flow were among the automotive and engineering firms to make offers. Reliance Cement, Dr. Reddy's Lab, and ABB Global Services also offered placements.

In this one-year programme, students go through multidisciplinary courses in technology and management at IIM Calcutta, IIT Kanpur and IIT Madras. To increase proximity among VLFM alumni, industry and academia, IIM-C has planned to organise the second collaborative meeting in New Delhi on September 27.

According to Partha Priya Datta, Chairperson, PGPEX-VLM, manufacturing is central to India’s economy and its long-term growth. “Companies are increasingly realizing the significance of executive education in the manufacturing sector”, he added.
