This year we got an opportunity to welcome 33 new recruiters, including a new cohort of media & advertising firms. The 143 'dream applications' made by our students demonstrates the effectiveness of cluster-cohort system where students are pursuing opportunities in sectors and firms of their choice across sectors.
