@XLer - I wanted to know in specific what profiles were offered by KPMG & Deloitte for BM candidates..... The table in the article just mentions Business Consulting, which in itself is a big domain to classify any role... In specific I wanted to know - Did KPMG offered its Financial Risk Management Profile? (It had offered this profile in 2011) - Apart from S&O, did Deloitte hire for any other profile for BM candidates?

@editors Near the FMCG table above "No one at XLRI...." is not along with rest of Para, giving a completely different meaning to it (if a person reads through quickly) please modify

If you are looking into Finance, go for IIM-L, anything else you have a better chance of getting that job at XLRI

@Rohan Please dont make it a pagalguy by igniting comparisons. Both are good. If on one side XL enjoys better placements due to smaller batch size, IIML enjoys better placements owing to highest averge work-ex and has investment banks in its laterals placements(no other IIMs and leave others, enjoy this) Also, why are you so much wary about smaller bafch size? Do you doubt your own capabilities to get placed on day zero? Btw, an awesome show by XLRI. Excellent placements. Congrats everyone.

Agree that IIML enjoys better placements...but certainly workex is not the reason...infact IIML has changed its criteria for the current batch studying...ROFL on "iimL has investment bank in laterals"....can u just name one...HSBC-GRS and Goldman sachs-Tech are not investment banking profiles....

can you guys believe it just 5 years ago, average placement figures of xlri was around 8 lakhs. Its doubled in such a short period of time.I wonder till when will this boom last. median salary of 15.5 lakhs is simply mind boggling. Even if average take away is 12,its still pretty amazing. Good job by xlri. The battle between xlri and iim lucknow wont be settled anytime soon. But i can safely say that both are better than fms,iim i,k and the likes.

Its not at all safe to say that xl is better than FMS. in fact, many more people who leave IIM L leave it for FMS than for XL. There have also been people in the past few years who have left IIMs ABC for FMS, I haven't heard such cases for IIM L and XL. BEsides location and investment of FMS are uncomparable. Undisputeldy, IIMs ABC are in one leage, and just a noth below are FMS, IIM L and XL. To rank these colleges within each sub group is completely subjective. Each one is a gem in their own right

How do freshers do during the placements? i have heard that people with work-ex have an edge over the freshers? Is it? Please throw some light on it.

Different companies look for different profiles. Both freshers and experience people get good offers in final placements. Many Work-ex people get place during lateral recruitment so freshers don't have much competition during final placements and they easily get good offers.

Just awesome....No words....

21 Feb, 2012 |


Brendan

Good thing to use the median salary ...... Average has never been a great indicator of salaries..... Also, would be interesting to know - Median salary for BM as against Median for PMIR ? - Median salary for Fresher vs 1 year work ex vs 2 year work ex vs 3 year work ex ? Would make a lot of sense to the future XL Aspirants.....

BM and PMIR have nearly same median, although can't comment on average. experience wise doesn't make sense, as many companies have variable depending on experience.

@inside.com:There is no reason specified for the decrease in companied from more than 100 last year to 73.Why such a big decrease from past year?

21 Feb, 2012 |


Team InsideIIM

@timeschange - That depends on how a placement season pans out. Sometimes companies make more offers reducing the need to continue placements on future days as everyone is placed and hence lower number of companies. Also, depends on how it is reported. Some campuses do not include the PPO companies as a part of participating recruiters. Some campuses do. IN some years they dont. In some years they do. All these affect the stats.

@insideiim Team: Hows the placements scene in other institutes? Any work in progress on placement reports?

16 Mar, 2012 |


Team InsideIIM

@Rajagopal - We are waiting to publish reports. However, as per information with us 5 days ago, no one has announced the closure of their placements. IIM A, B, L, I, K. Most campuses had candidates still to be placed in double digits. IIM C and SPJIMR have announced completion of placements. IIM C has asked us to wait for 1 week for data. Still to here from SPJIMR. No word yet from FMS Delhi yet or from JBIMS Mumbai.
