The gap between ABC and L is reducing while the one between L and (XLRI, FMS, I, K) is increasing.


Yes…Though it will take 6 to 7 years for IIM L to catch up with ABC, its performance has been impressive over the years.It is evident from the number of offers that ivy league companies are making to the students. Batch diversity must have really helped the institute.


Dude … I never made a random statement. In fact you did. Support your statements with data.

You just had some data from L. You never bothered to wait for other schools to come up with their report. And you just reached a conclusion.


Several of those companies have recruited only from IIM L (along with ABC). A T Kearney is a big name in the management consulting industry. It never looked beyond ABC for recruitment. Now, it has added IIML to its list. Mckinsey & BCG are regular recruiters at IIML. Zephyr PE, Samara Capital are big names in the PE industry – recruited only from IIML. And hedge funds – IIML is the only IIM to host hedge funds this year.

Need i say more?

Mst. P

count the number of front end IB roles offered by Bulge bracket firms in ABC and compare that with L , and then think of clubbing ABC with L . There are a couple of reasons why ABC is ABC , 1st one is the consulting roles on which IIIM L is catching fast , 2nd one is the front end IB roles offered by bulge bracket firms in which IIM L is still way behind ABC .


Oh yeah … seems that A, B, C place-comm came & told you that they r not hosting hedge funds … this is my last comment … no point in continuing.


Arey baba, every campus (among the top 4 IIMs) which companies are visiting which all campuses. Oh yeah, you need to be in the top 4 campus to understand this.


Was wondering abhi tak IIM Indore ka zikr kyon nahin hua? While everyone reached out to you directly or indirectly, I assume IIMI did not because their placements may not have got over. But still you people went out of your way and contacted them to which they replied. Itni partiality kyon?


I am an IIMK student. Its a sham that the placom says 100% placement. Many of us were forced to sign out and 50+ offers came in companies with 0 stipends


I am also from IIMK and none was forced to signout from the process and as no one is forced to work without stipend infact this year the summers finished in record time….
