Wednesday, December 5th, 2018

Indian School of Business (ISB) campuses have recorded 29% increase in the number of companies visiting them for campus placements. The institute has also witnessed highest job offers for post-graduate program (PGP) students in management. The average salary package received by PGP students is Rs 25.06 lakh per annum. 

ISB has two campuses at Hyderabad and Mohali. Domestic and international companies have made a total of 1,194 job offers to ISB students of PGP class. As many as 18 international companies including the likes of Deloitte, Amazon, and Accenture have visited ISB campuses for their hiring needs. 

“When it comes to sourcing world-class talent in a growth market, ISB is the preferred partner for many companies. In some cases, ISB is the only campus where some of these companies visit for their India placements. The unprecedented number of offers, this early in the process, is a vote of confidence on the quality of ISB students", said Professor Rajendra Srivastava, Dean, ISB. 

ISB is among the top 100 global business schools in the world. The number of recruiters at ISB this year were from consulting, IT/ITES, e-commerce, and BSFI sectors. The BSFI sector reported the highest recruitment from ISB. Top BSFI companies included companies such as Barclays, Citibank, Credit Suisse, HSBC, JP Morgan, Matrix, and ICICI Bank. 

Top international firms that hired majority of the students from ISB include Apple, EY, GrabTaxi, Li and Fung. These companies hired students for global locations like Middle East, Hong Kong, North Africa, and Singapore. In some cases, ISB is the only campus where companies visit for their India placements. 

Even the Punjab Bureau of Investment Promotion (InvestPunjab) has visited ISB campuses to boost their investment promotion and facilitation team. The gender distribution of job offers is much better this year. Out of the total job offers made, 35% were to female candidates. The hiring report from ISB comes as a good news since experts predicted low hiring for MBA graduates

ISB follows a lateral hiring process called ‘rolling placements’ where recruiters and students take several weeks to find the best fit.
