Final Placements – IIM Indore – Class Of 2016

IIM Indore concluded placements for a mammoth 617 students – students spread across 2 courses and 2 cities. The performance is quite commendable given the magnitude of the task. Most other top business schools need to place about 60% of the size that IIM Indore placed this year. BCG, Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse, HUL, Nestle, Google, Flipkart, IBM, L’Oreal, Deutsche Bank, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Aditya Birla Group, Airtel are some of the marquee recruiters at IIM Indore this year.

The first IPM batch also graduated this year and it will be interesting how placements shape up for that course over the years going forward. Our prediction is that 5 years from now placements for the IPM Course will be better than the placements for PGP at IIM Indore – but the jury is still out on that.

A record 191 women also participated in the process at IIM Indore.

@Badri – You are free to disagree. Our prediction is based on interaction with the stakeholders in the business school, the quality of the programme and how we see things shaping up. It may well not turn out that way but we will be the first ones to admit we were wrong.


Then 5 yr integrated IPM
Couse has no positive aspect.
In fact it is inferior to PGP.
