The summer placement season for the PGP class of 2015-17 of the Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB) drew the top recruiters from across sectors and concluded successfully on November 3.


IIM Bangalore is also simultaneously hosting the summer recruitment process for IIM Visakhapatnam’s PGP Class of 2015-2017, with around 60 per cent of the applicants already placed.


This year the process witnessed the participation of 410 eligible students and more than 150 companies came to hire students for summer stints in multiple roles such as consulting, investment banking, markets, corporate banking, sales & markets, business leadership, product management, operations, category management, and general management.


Another striking feature of the process was that more than 30 firms visited IIMB for hiring for the first time. Some of these included Anheuser Busch Inbev, Aurionpro, Fidelity Worldwide Investment, India Value Fund, Lenovo, LightBox Ventures, Texas Instruments, Nirvana Ventures, Myntra, Uber, Walmart Labs, and Novartis. Temasek Holdings renewed hiring from IIM Bangalore after a gap of more than five years.


Introduction of Dream Company choice for the first time in IIMB placements was the highlight of this summer placement season. Recruiters such as Tata Administrative Services, Aditya Birla Group, P&G, ITC, and Hindustan Unilever were chosen by students as their dream company.
