Hi sir! hope you are doing good! The placements of all the nine campus of Hyderabad for Year 2019 was Very Good ! Mostly for all the campus There where good companies for recruitment!

following is the official link of Ibs Placements for The year 2019

all the best!

IBS Business School, Jaipur doesn't accept CMAT score. Candidates willing to join this institute have to appear for IBSAT conducted by that college. Admission will be based on the performance in IBSAT.
CAT/GMAT/NMAT qualified candidates don't need to sit for the exam (IBSAT). They are directly invited to the interview round.

Hello Azar,

Your question is not clear. Do you mean you got 10 percentile in CAT? If yes, then I am disappointed to let you know that you won't be getting decent colleges with this score. Also, I would not recommend you to join IBS Jaipur. Had you received a call from IBS Hyderabad, my suggestion would have been otherwise.

Kindly give yourself a chance and work hard to achieve better scores in CAT, XAT, IIFT, NMAT, SNAP, etc. It is always recommended to pursue MBA from good colleges for a better chance of getting placed in good MNCs. All the best.

Hi Riya

Thanks for contacting careers360 for your query. If you want to pursue management courses, then it is always advisable to prepare well and aim for top B-schools. Only ranked B-schools provide excellent facilities in all areas , including academics, infrastructure, exposure, placement etc.

Talking about the Indian Business Schools, then IBS Jaipur is an average college in terms of placement, Faculty & corporate exposure, Study environment etc. As per the reviews of alumni of this college, their experience was below expectation, practical learning was less and placement was not much beneficial. Class 2018 highest package is 10.2 lac. IBS has published its final placement statistics for 2017. According to the official website, average CTC was 4.21 lacs and highest was 6.66 lacs. The top 10 percent got 6.66 lacs while the top 25 percent got 5.28 lacs.

Similarly for IBS Ahmedabad, the fee structure is more than the average placement packages. Flagship programme fees is 7.26 lacs and average placement is 5.18 lacs. As per reviews it is actually not worth the time and money you invest. 

Also I would like to add that only Hyderabad and Mumbai campuses of IBS have been reviewed as good colleges for MBA programmes. IBS Hyderabad is known for its specialization in Finance and IBS Mumbai for Marketing. Apparently about 40% of the faculties in IBS Mumbai are a visiting faculty, because of which students are exposed to the Industry experts  However, IBS Hyderabad is any day better in terms of Faculty, Infrastructure, Student life when compared to other campuses.

Hope the information above will help you take a better decision. Still if you have no option then don't worry. Have confidence in yourself and give your best wherever you go.

Good Luck!
