Summer Placements : IIM Bangalore – Class of 2014 -16
This is the fourth Summer Placement report at IIM Bangalore that we are reporting on InsideIIM.com. IIM Bangalore is one of the best schools in India and hence they are some sort of a benchmark which one can track as far as business school placements in India go. You have to consider yourself fortunate to be at IIM Bangalore. The fact that almost 10% of the batch is expected to intern abroad is quite impressive. Of course, one of the other highlights has been the pace at which people have got placed this year for summer internships.
Two clear trends are domination of Consulting and the rise of E-Commerce when you track placements across the years.
Amazon was the biggest recruiter (19 Offers). Accenture (17 offers) and Goldman Sachs (15 offers) were the other big recruiters. We believe that E-Commerce and emerging Technology companies are going to dominate hiring in premier business schools. Banking & Finance will always be one of the preferred domains in top schools because of the kind of money on offer but Consulting has been over-shadowing it for a few years now as far as numbers go. Also, Consulting – Summer internship to a Final Offer Conversion Ratio is far higher than in Banking. Our recruitment surveys have consistently showed the shift towards Consulting and E-Commerce/Consumer companies as Dream Companies over the last 2-3 years.
