Talking about the cluster wise placement process, Yash Sheel Srivastava, the Recruitment Secretary of IIM Ahmedabad said, “The cluster process at IIMA has consistently encouraged students to assess career choices sector wise. It helps supplement other parameters like role, brand and salary. To that end, we initiated a system of 3 dream applications wherein a person could apply and sit for 3 more companies after securing an offer. This encouraged inter-cluster movement between major sectors like finance, consulting, marketing, core manufacturing and e-commerce.The cluster process has helped us not get concentrated in a few sectors.”
