Meet India’s 50 Most Employable Management Graduates From The Class Of 2016

Here we are!

Exactly a year later with the list of India’s Most Employable Management Graduates from the Class of 2016. The competition – Best 50 – saw participation from top students across schools in India and our esteemed panel of judges – Madhav from Flipkart and Anu from Reckitt Benckiser were amazed by the quality of talent on display. We unveil the 54 (a few people were tied with similar scores and hence 54 and not 50) most employable graduates below.

We kick-started our Best50 competition last year and had come out with a list of 30 students which you can see here. It is an attempt to find the best management graduates from across all Business Schools in India graduating in March-April each year. The competition was a massive hit and stories like these (Robin Jain) inspired many students across colleges (post-grad and under-grad) across India. This competition helps you stand out. You won’t get filtered out in an excel sheet. 

The competition involves the students volunteering to be considered for this title. Only those who think they are among the best can actually be the best! The next round involves allowing the best among the applicants to submit a resume and a write-up where they had to answer 2-3 of our questions.

All of this happened on our new one-on-one messaging platform Konversations – If you are a campus student reading this, you may want to register under the Recruiter Watch list section.

Please note that no interview was conducted. These 54 are the candidates who the recruiters are most keen to meet this year for an interview from among all the applications we received. Their performance could vary once they sit for an interview.

They aren’t necessarily people who got the best summer job on campus or are the most popular on their campus. These are individuals who have exhibited one/or many of the following attributes :

– Excellence in one/multiple fields – Academics, Extra-Curricular, Work Experience, Research etc.

– Some of them are people who have fought well in trying circumstances and still done well

– Some are people with different profiles. They have at least attempted to do something different in life

The students below have not been ranked in any particular order, they all are honoured with the coveted title of being the Most Employable Manager for the batch of 2016.

However, the following students below have the potential to be the best recruits this year from the Class of 2016 🙂
