The campus placement for IIM Calcutta’s one-year residential programme for executives has witnessed a rise of 24.8 per cent in the top salary offered to the students, compared to last year.

The average salary for the eighth batch of Post Graduate Programme for Executives (PGPEX) also saw an upward graph climbing 21.6 per cent from last year to Rs 22.69 lakh per annum.

In the batch of 50 students, 54 offers were made to 44 candidates, out of which three joined their previous organisations, while one opted out.

About 55 companies, including Accenture, Amazon, Dell, Microsoft, Google, Ford Motors (IT), Snapdeal, Atos Consulting, Deloitte Touche, Oracle, CESC, Omni Active and Micromax, participated in the placement hiring process for mid-management to senior management-level jobs.

IT/consulting and IT products firms led the hiring, with 12 and 10 offers each, followed by e-commerce companies that came up with eight offers. Other sectors that hired aggressively included Analytics, KPO, Power, BPO and real estate.

The roles offered to students ranged from mid-management to senior-management level with designations like Assistant General Manager, Solution Architect Director, Senior Principal Consultant, and DGM-Finance among others.

“Corporates seem to increasingly value the rigorous and best-in-class education obtained after excellent track record of work experience,” Chairperson, Career Development & Placement Office at IIM Prof Rajiv Kumar, told PTI.

“As the placement statistics show, industry seems to increasingly prize such talented and committed people. The senior roles that the students of graduating batch have bagged convey the confidence industry has posed in the ability of PGPEX students of IIM Calcutta to contribute toward organisational growth,” Kumar added.
