Making an impressive start to the Placement Season, IMT Ghaziabad - a premier top ranked B-School in the NCR region has placed 50% of the batch on Day Zero, and 80% of the batch within the first week of placements. The institute's unprecedented achievement has smashed all previous records.
With unparalleled interest and support from corporates across the industry and verticals, be it Automobiles, Manufacturing and FMCG, students of the 2014-15 batch have been snapped up by large consulting firms including Deloitte, KPMG, Ernst & Young, top pharma companies along with big names from the corporate world like Microsoft, Google, Snapdeal L'Oreal and Café Coffee Day amongst others.
A stellar year for placements, the current season has witnessed visit of approximately 90+ companies from varied corporate sectors to the IMT campus. With an average domestic pay package of above Rs.10 lakhs, the highest domestic pay package has been offered of Rs. 23 lakhs per annum.
IMT believes that the reason for such a successful hiring in the current placement season remains the fact that IMT students possess world-beating qualities of street smartness, intelligence with presentable personality and impeccable leadership skills.
Speaking on the outstanding achievement, Dr Bibek Banerjee, Director, IMT Ghaziabad said, "IMT believes in grooming its students into business leaders and making them adaptable, flexible and sensitive to the cross-cultural context of business. Carrying a legacy of 35 years, IMT students are equipped with an in-depth understanding of international business, cultures, economies and the policies of regions they wish to do business with,"
"This credential arms them with a useful knowledge, which they are further encouraged applying in real-life situations. Also by spending time with the corporate world and industries, the institution seeks to customize its education to their needs, which creates a shared value for the students and the business,"
"Perceptive to the changing times and ever-evolving demands of the new-age corporate world, IMT seeks to constantly explore fresher avenues that help the students shore up to the upcoming challenges of the corporate world," he added.
The success of IMT in capping an impressive placement season in the current economic downturn can be attributed to the fact that IMT provides favorable conditions like 5 months internship module along with 2 months internship. This provides a larger window to companies to observe students performance and evaluate their leadership, team building, sales and marketing and analytical skills, leading to greater number of PPIs and PPOs every year.
The Institute also runs additional courses which are industry-oriented and cater to the emerging demands of the industry. Amongst the few institutes that have started an analytics course which is in tune with the industry requirements, IMT is considered more pro-corporate and its students are well trained to take up corporate challenges.
The Institute has also remodeled its offerings from PGDM marketing to sales and marketing, and PGDM Finance to BFSI in tune with the emerging trends in the industry letting students excel in any given conditions.
A 2014 batch student placed with Microsoft says, "Organizing management events, interacting with a plethora of industry professionals and learning from immensely experienced faculty - these were the catalysts at IMT that transformed me from a simple IT professional to a global consultant at Microsoft"
A student placed with Mahindra and Mahindra Ltd. says, "IMT provides a huge array of opportunities when it comes to international exposure, in terms of exchange to other foreign universities and making new friends with incoming exchange students. This provided me with great understanding of education and business practices followed throughout the world. Secondly, the great pedagogy and extra-curricular activities in IMT teaches one how to multi-task and stay ahead on all fronts."
This year, IMT has also capped up a tremendous Placement record for its PGDM (Executive) program where industry bigwigs like Idea Cellular, Cummins, Accenture, Wipro, Snapdeal, Audi, Honda, Bacardi and Videocon amongst others participated in the placements. For the PGDM (Executive) program the highest domestic pay package offered was Rs. 19 lakh per annum.
Thought to be more demanding than the PGDM program, the response to PGDM (Executive) program has been overwhelming this year, as placing students at the mid or the higher level is always a challenging task.
