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. The recruiters also reposed faith in our placement process by bringing varied and diverse roles and exceeding their commitments on all fronts.
