LinkedIn.com has made life easy for all of us. We thought we should make it easier for all you aspirants and current students. Using freely available data on LinkedIn.com, Team InsideIIM presents to you the 'Alumni Report'. We have looked at all professionals who have mentioned one of the older 6 IIMs as a part of their Education on their LinkedIn.com profile and done some analysis for the last 15 years. This is the first in a series of reports that we shall bring to you on alumni in top schools of India!
This report focuses only on 2 aspects - Locations and Companies. Every professional who has attended one of the 6 IIMs between 1997 to present (About 15 years) is included. If you look at the flagship PGP programme, it includes about 16 batches (Lowest being IIM Indore 13 batches).
Since the data is user-generated, we cannot say that the figures are 100% accurate. But we suggest, you look at the data and figure out a trend rather than splitting hair on every statistic. For e.g. IIM I and IIM K (13 & 14 batches respectively) show a trend which suggests they are twins :P
Please note the following before you proceed forward :
1) The data may include a few fake profiles. However, The number is too insignificant to distort the trend.
2)It includes professionals who may have attended other programmes at these institutions. Not everyone, in the sample has attended the 2 yr flagship PGP programme. For e.g. it may even include someone who has done a 3 day certificate programme at any IIM.
3) It includes current PGP students who are undergoing summer internships and have updated their profile with the name of the organization they are interning in.
4)We have not filtered for domain/function. So if there is someone in a bank's technology team, since he/she is an employee of the bank, it would be counted below.
Lets look at the data :
IIM Ahmedabad - Dates Attended - 1997-2012 - Total Sample - 8,647

The above data is as on 20th April 2012. It will be republished again as on 20th October 2012 which shall see inclusion of the Class of 2012 with their updated permanent roles.
Next we shall bring to you the non-IIM top business schools - ISB Hyderabad, XLRI Jamshedpur, FMS Delhi, JBIMS Mumbai, SPJIMR Mumbai
