XLRI (Jamshedpur), on of the country’s top business schools, has concluded its summer internship placements for 2013 within a span of four days by following a preference-based slotted process.

Nearly 73 companies participated in the summer placement process and close to 282 offers were made to a batch of 240 students, said a press statement issued by XLRI.

The preference-based slotted process allows a student to state his choice of companies for the internship. These are then matched with the offers that are available. The placement process is completed when a student receives a suitable offer.

The highest domestic stipend was offered by an investment bank for its Mumbai desk and the highest international stipend was offered by Novartis for leadership role at its global headquarters in Switzerland. Nearly two-thirds of the batch bagged stipends exceeding the Rs 1lakh mark for the internship period.
