Summer Placements : IIM Indore – Class of 2014 -16

This was the largest batch across IIMs (a total of over 550 students, with the IPM program also being included in the summer placement process). After the stellar performances of XLRI Jamshedpur, TISS and FMS Delhi, IIM Indore too has enjoyed a great run this season.

One of the other things that catches the eye is Boston Consulting Group hiring students for Summers. While BCG has been visiting IIM Indore for Finals for 4 years now, they have recruited during summer placements for the first time. The return of Bank of America Merrill Lynch after a hiatus of 2 years is another positive. Deutsche Bank continues to hire at IIM Indore in large numbers. There is a good diversity of profiles, except perhaps in FMCG where some marquee names are missing : P&G, Nestle, Coca-Cola, Mondelez etc. – Some of which visit some of the other comparable campuses like FMS, XLRI

Dear InsideIIM,
What is your mode of comparision?

Team Insideiim

Of the reports that have come out this year – if you compare FMCG it is weak against FMS , XLRI – Not that much of a gap between in Fin/Consult. Other comparable campuses IIM K, MDI, JBIMS haven’t given us data yet.
