FORE 2013-15 PGDM and PGDM-IB batch early placements trend gives a reason to cheer
The placement season at New Delhi’s top-ranked FORE School of Management is giving the 2013-15 batch a reason to cheer. This year the placement process has been faster and extremely successful. 60 percent of the batch has already been absorbed by organizations like Deloitte, PWC, E & Y, KPMG, Cognizant, Dell, Infosys, CapGemini, NIIT, HCL, and Wipro.
The estimated number of companies visiting the campus this year is expected to go well beyond the 100 that were welcomed on the campus last year. This would make the company-student ratio close to 1:2 – representing an a wide choice of industry and functions to the PGDM and PGDM-IB class and comparable with the best. There is a good representation of all sectors from the industry making it easier for students to find employment with their desired organizations. Traditionally consulting companies have had a strong presence at FORE.
The average CTC being offered to the students is higher than last year and should end-up recording a jump over the 2014 number of approx. Rs 8 lacs. Several students are being offered over Rs 12 lacs per anum package this time around.
According the Chairperson Placements, Dr Rajneesh Chauhan, “The number of PPIs and PPOs offered to students this year have also increased, as have the international placements. Given that the cost of pursuing PGDM at FORE has always been on the lower side, this means a payback period of less than one year for a well placed student! “.
