The non-IIM Top MBA Alumni Report 2014 – Part Two (FMCG, Tech, Telecom, E-Commerce)

Having seen the locations, companies and functions for the non-IIM top MBA Alumni in the earlier report – (The non-IIM Top MBA Alumni Report 2014 – Locations, Companies and Functions), we now move on to the second part – Alumni presence in top FMCG, Tech, Telecom and E-Commerce firms.

Key Insights:

XLRI, NITIE, SPJIMR and FMS DElhi have the largest number of students in FMCG companies. ISB has not made significant inroads in this sector.

HUL and Procter & Gamble have been the major FMCG recruiters from the top non-IIM B schools. Recently, even ITC has become a major recruiter.

ISB’s performance is extremely impressive in the top tech firms like Google (it has 54% of the alumni base in this dataset), Facebook (64%) and Microsoft (37%). The only other campus that has a reasonably strong presence across companies is XLRI

The schedule for placements this year is as follows:

Cluster 1: 13th February 2017

The institute will follow a rolling process post-Cluster 3 if necessary.

Look out for this section with more updates on the above mentioned dates.

16th February 2017

IIM Ahmedabad conducted Cluster 2 of the Finals placement process for the PGP batch of 2017 on 16th February 2017. The second cluster consisted of five cohorts: Consumer Goods and Services, General Management, Niche Consulting, Pharmaceuticals and Technology.

The Consumer Goods and Services and Technology cohorts included regular partners like Airtel, Asian Paints, HUL, ITC, Nestlé, P&G, Reckitt Benckiser and Samsung. The General Management and Leadership cohort comprised of recruiters such as the C K Birla Group, Mahindra and Tata Administrative Services, while the Niche Consulting cohort comprised of firms like Feedback Infra and others.

The third cluster is scheduled to be conducted on 19th February 2017.

13th February 2017

The first cluster of the Final Placement process for the PGP class of 2017 was held today at the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad. The firms that participated in Cluster 1 comprised three cohorts – investment banking and markets; management consulting and private equity, venture capital and hedge funds.

The list of Cluster 1 recruiters included regular partners such as Accenture Strategy, A. T. Kearney, Bain & Co., Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, McKinsey & Company, Oliver Wyman and others.

IIM-A has always had an extremely rich mix of firms from diverse sectors. Consulting firms, offering management consulting roles across geographies, continued to hire in large numbers. This reinforces the strength of the general management program at IIM-A. McKinsey & Company made the highest number of offers – 15 (including pre-placement offers) in Cluster 1. Finance firms offered roles in investment banking, private equity, venture capital and capital markets across functions and geographies.

Valentine’s Day Is A Marketing Gimmick – GD Monday

Welcome to yet another week of GD Monday!

To View and Comment on previous weeks’ topics, please click here.

On one hand, it seems sweet to have a day dedicated to lovers all around the world, on the other hand, it seems stupid to wait for an entire year to make someone feel special. With a hike in prices for flowers, gifts and movies on Valentine’s day and an added pressure to have a date to make yourself seem cool, Valentine’s Day may have just become another marketing gimmick. Would you rather make your someone special feel loved on just one day by bringing them flowers or just do it on any other day just because? Would you want to be a part of the marketing gimmick or be free of that?

Tell us your views on the comments below and get evaluated for the same. Please bear in mind that there is no right or wrong answer for it. That’s an opinion. However, the reasons for that opinion may be right or wrong.  And that’s what is important – the process of reaching the conclusion rather than the conclusion itself.

This is how it’ll work:

1) Users can post their arguments in the comments section below by logging in through their www.insideiim.com User id.

2) You can argue and counter-argue on the topic for the entire week. You can even challenge your friends and make it more interesting!

3) The thread will be moderated by Team InsideIIM to ensure the discussion is kept relevant and is not abusive.

4) On Saturday, experts and industry professionals at InsideIIM (all ex-IIM, XLRI, MICA only) will rate each argument on the thread on the scale of 10 with some guidance.

This cannot replace the experience of the actual GD but this exercise will surely help you shape your line of thought. While we may not be able to help you here with your delivery, we ensure that if you go through these next few weeks with us on this thread you will markedly improve your content. Hopefully, there will be more substance when you actually speak in a GD after going through this exercise.

Which Are The Most Preferred Technology, Telecom And Analytics Campus Recruiters? – InsideIIM Recruitment Survey 2016 – Part 10

This sector represents the future of work. Some of the most cutting edge work in the world is done by these companies. They are also increasingly becoming the most sought after companies replacing Banks, FMCG and Consulting firms in the dream company list.

In part 10 of the Recruitment Survey results we check which Technology, Telecom and Analytics recruiters are the most sought after among 2 respondent categories : 1) Aspirants & 1st Year MBA Students on Campus 2) The 2nd Year or Graduating Students. We did not have enough respondents from alumni who are working in this sector to come out with a ranking for the Alumni category.

(You can find the previous 8 parts in this series here which cover Marketing, Banking and General Management Lists, other important stats around expected salaries, preferred work cities, Cost of a MBA etc.)

It’s time to reveal our findings. This is year 5 of our Recruitment Survey and Recruiter Rankings.  The only platform that provides insight into what students and management professionals think. We look at their aspirations and motivations. We also come out with lists of the most desired recruiters across top business school campuses in India. These findings are based on surveying over 1200 students who answered over 25 questions in our questionnaire.

Current Students – Graduating Class of 2017

The interesting addition to the list is Reliance Jio. Most notable omission is Flipkart because of the events of the year gone by. All the top technology companies from the valley are the most desired and their Indian counterparts (if any) are not. Bigbasket.com is a big surprise. Yahoo, Cognizant and eBay have slipped out of the top 10.

13.2 IT 2nd year

 

Aspirants & First Year Students (Class of 2018)

We see Reliance Jio popping up here too for the first time. Flipkart slips in this list but still is in the top 10. Airtel enters the list. It is fascinating how Google tops the list among both groups of respondents and in both the last two years despite the existence of companies like Apple, Facebook, Amazon in the mix. Clearly, Google has created a perception which makes it an employer of choice. Jabong (acquired by Flipkart), Snapdeal and Yahoo have all disappeared from the list.

13.1 IT aspirants

 

It must be noted that number of students recruited by these companies is far higher in the undergraduate schools (mostly engineering) as compared to the number hired from Business Schools. This context is important while looking at results but more than 75% of MBA students in Top schools in India are engineers and hence exposure to this sector is far more as compared to other sectors that recruit from MBA schools.
