Technology, consulting make maximum offers at ISB

Technology and consulting continue to be the largest recruiters at the Indian School of Business (ISB), which Monday announced progress of its placement season for the class of 2014 at its campuses in Hyderabad and Mohali. A total of 831 offers were made as on Feb 28 for students of Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP).

This is against 697 offers made in the corresponding period last year. Technology and consulting sectors constitute 35 and 21 percent of total number of offers so far, the leading business school said in a statement here. Apple, Cognizant, Facebook, Google, Infosys and Microsoft were the leading technology recruiters. Amazon, Flipkart, InMobi, Jade eServices and Myntra.com were among e-commerce companies who made a total of 81 offers.

The number of start-up companies participating in the placements process and their number of offers increased by 50 percent this year. Under 'Women leadership programme', Axis Bank made 20 offers to women students, up from 12 last year. Around 63 international offers were made so far. "A noticeable development this year is the participation of companies from the Middle East offering roles and packages on par with global companies," it said.

ISB has not revealed the salaries the graduates were offered. It said with a class size of 770 students, the PGP at ISB offers arguably the largest pool of top-notch experienced talent in Asia. "The ISB follows a system of rolling placements, a lateral hiring process that is spread over several months, giving both recruiters and students time to find their best fit," it added.
