Summer Placements – Class of 2015-17: XLRI Jamshedpur

Season #5 of Summer Placement Reporting continues today with XLRI Jamshedpur. One of the best schools in India, XLRI has been sharing data with us since 2012 and the general perception has always been very positive of the report being mostly accurate and largely transparent.  It is also quite notable that many of the best recruiters are wiling to travel all the way to recruit at Jamshedpur (there is no direct flight anymore). It points to two things – 1) Quality of Students and the XLRI brand 2) The super-strong Alumni base of the oldest business school in India (1949 – although the BM programme was introduced much later)

XLRI has expanded the batch in the last 2 years and has managed to maintain the overall profile and quality of the summer recruitment. The report below is for both HR and BM at XLRI. Human Resources Tab can be see under most of the heads.

You can find last year’s summer placement report (which is slightly more detailed) here. The most recent Final Placement report can be found here.

Highlights as per the placement team :

The median stipend offered to the batch was INR 65,000 per month while the maximum was INR 2.50 lakhs per month, the average stipend offered was around INR 70,000 per month

– XLRI continued its parallel placement process called “Parivartan” for the students who voluntarily withdrew from the conventional placement process and sat for interviews in various top notch NGOs and Not for Profit Organizations.

– The median stipend increased by ~16% per month

– Carlyle recruited exclusively from XLRI. Avendus Capital once again offered its front end PE Syndication & M&A Advisory role. JP Morgan Chase offered its Front End Markets Role to XLRI. The European Hedge Fund returned to hire summer interns
