This is a cohort-based placement which will be held in four clusters, beginning from Wednesday. Cluster1 has global strategy consulting, international investment banks, and investment management firms.
Recruiters picked up interns in large numbers on the first day. There were almost 25 firms including McKinsey and Co, Boston Consulting Group (BCG), Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Barclays Capital, Royal Bank of Scotland and Accenture had participated in the placement process.
However, it was the Deliberate associations which took off most of the interns. IIMA Senior Official responsible for the placements said "BCG extended offers to 14 students and was the biggest recruiter in Cluster1. All Consulting firms recruited in large numbers in general, with McKinsey and Co and Accenture recruiting double digit numbers of interns."
"Firms in the financial sector also hired aggressively. Royal Bank of Scotland recruited interns for various roles in different locations", he added.
