About 139 pre-placement offers were extended to IIM-Bengaluru students before the final placements based on their performance during the summer internship.
The final placement season for the Post-Graduate Programme (PGP) class of 2014-16 at IIM-Bengaluru concluded on Thursday.
This year, 409 eligible students took part in the placement process. Around 60 companies came for recruitment and made over 450 offers. Management consultants such as Bain & Co, Accenture, Deloitte and The Boston Consulting Group were the biggest recruiters.
The lateral placement for candidates with over 22 months work experience saw 136 offers made by firms in domains like consulting, business leadership, product management, operations, category management, and general management.
More than 30 per cent of the entire batch received offers in the consulting sector, which also included reputed names like Strategy&, Roland Berger, Alvarez & Marsal and GEP Consulting. Other prominent recruiters in this space were ZS, EXL, KPMG and PricewaterhouseCoopers.
Eighteen students were offered international placements from various firms. Two students had foregone their pre-placement offers, which included one from a leading multinational financial services corporation, to continue with their entrepreneurial ventures.
Prof Ganesh N Prabhu, chairperson, career development services, IIM-B, said: “Though there was a slight dip in e-commerce hiring, consulting firms hired in larger numbers and helped accelerate the process.”
