Can someone confirm if Bain, Mckinsey and Amazon actually made offers at IIM Kozhikode? This is an unverified report but anyone from the community can help to confirm?


Thanks. Is it Bain & Co. or Bain Capability Centre? Also did Bain & Co. visit IIM Lucknow too?


Correction – one of 7 campuses in India to get *actual offers* this year from the MBB firms for regular strategy consulting roles

Team InsideIIM

Don’t you guys think IIM Kozhikode should just share a verified report? It would be so much easier. We anyway have so many good samaritans from IIM Kozhikode answering questions here 🙂

Team InsideIIM

Yes. For sure. But it isn’t necessarily in the format future aspirants and recruiters want to know. They want to know more about the profiles offered and not just the names of the company. We may not have 100% accurate data but students thank us every year for helping them make better admission decisions because of the placement report. What is the need to not share information when you have had such a successful season?


This looks like a awesome setup to increase seats to 422 from next year as has been approved by the leadership. Just bump up some numbers, show some good recruiters, and boom next year you have 60 more students.

Show some good recruiters? The biggest of names have not just participated but made offers with the likes of MBB making multiple offers each. Don’t think there’s a basis for you to make unfounded allegations!

Also, the first year students are already a batch of 400+ students and yet had a splendid summer placement season. Request you to research better, thanks.


Honestly there are just 3 names which you actually call good recruiters the MBB and I am not even sure if any body was hired at all. IIM K until last year had an average salary of 17.8 (It still showed MB on the list BTW). Do you think Bain hired half the batch to get to 20.6 ? And let’s meet next year again to see how much of an average that batch of 400+ holds. And splendid summer placement? What was so splendid in that?


The placement report states 107 companies. I can count 45-50 companies here. What were the rest of them?


Something is fishy in the IIM K placement report. The placement report at the website has given a breakup of average salaries for each function (Marketing, operations, consulting) etc. and the percentage of students getting into those functions. If we simply do a sumproduct of the average and percentage (Assuming 100 students for simplicity) and find out the global average, we get an average salary of the entire batch as 19.37. However the IIM K total average salary for the entire batch is stated to be 20.67. Can someone explain how?Or have I missed something here?
Here is the report for everyone to check:

Here are the details:
Consulting – 30% students at 20.84 LPA average salary
Finance – 21% students at 18.41 LPA average salary
Gen Man – 10% students at 20.51 LPA average salary
IT an analytics – 16% students at 16.5 LPA average salary
Operations – 6% students at 24.24 LPA average salary
S&M – 17% students at 18.3 LPA average salary
[(30*20.84)+ (21*18.41)+(10*20.51)+(16*16.5)+(6*24.24)+(17*18.3)]/100
=1937/100=19.37 LPA. What is going on here?
Just do a global average and we get the average salary as 19.37. Mind you the report clearly says percentage of students getting into the roles for each function along with the average salary per function so there is no other way to go other than to simply calculate the global average. Can someone please validate?
