In the summer placement process of the IIM Ahmedabad PGP class 2015-17, consulting domain emerged as the most preferred. In this domain, The Boston Consulting Group stand-out as a top recruiter by making 19 internship offers to the PGP students. More than 110 companies participated in this process to recruit students across sectors and profiles.

IIM Ahmedabad completed the summer placement process within three clusters with students placed across eleven sectors and functions of their choice. Like previous years, students were provided the flexibility of making ‘dream applications’ to firms of their choice in a subsequent cluster even with an offer in hand. There were about 80 dream applications in this year’s process.

A few students received an opportunity to work under the mentorship of Centre for Innovation, Incubation and Entrepreneurship (CIIE), IIM Ahmedabad on their entrepreneurial ideas in the Summer of 2016.

Sector Wise Overview

Recruiters in the management and niche consulting domain included Accenture Strategy, Alvarez & Marsal, A.T. Kearney, Bain & Co., McKinsey & Co., Monitor Deloitte, Parthenon, Roland Berger, Strategy, and the Boston Consulting Group, among others. Prominent recruiters in the investment banking and markets space include Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Citibank, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, JPMorgan Chase & Co., Morgan Stanley, Standard Chartered and UBS. Among the Banking, Financial Services & Insurance recruiters, American Express, Axis Bank, Edelweiss, JM Financial, Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group and Yes Bank extended offers.

Sales and marketing roles were offered by the regular recruiters like Airtel, HUL, Mondelez, P&G, Reckitt Benckiser, Star TV, Vodafone, Wipro, among others.

The General Management cohort saw participation from Aditya Birla Group, Tata Administrative Services and Mahindra & Mahindra. The Internet & E-commerce space had recruiters like CarDekho, Flipkart, Ola Cabs, OYO Rooms, Rocket Internet, Snapdeal and Xiaomi.  

Top Recruiters

The Boston Consulting Group emerged as the highest offer maker at the end of the summer placement process with 19 offers. Among global investment banks, Goldman Sachs was the largest recruiter, having picked 11 students for roles in financial markets, investment banking and financial strategy. In the sales and marketing domain, HUL and Johnson & Johnson made 6 offers each. Amongst general management firms, Aditya Birla Group made 17 offers, which was the highest. Tata Administrative Services and Mahindra & Mahindra made 8 offers each. In the technology sector, Amazon was the largest recruiter having extended 18 offers to students for roles in marketing, operations, product marketing and product management.

Flipkart extended 10 offers and Snapdeal made 6 offers. 17 students opted out of the summer placement process to work on their own ventures, under the guidance and mentorship of CIIE. The number of students opting out to start out their own ventures has been increasing over the years.

Prof. Satish Deodhar, the Chairperson of the Placement Committee, IIM Ahmedabad said, “It is noteworthy that about eighty students exercised their dream options in subsequent clusters, seventeen students opted for entrepreneurial internship, and that all three clusters were house-full with key market leaders from within their cohorts. This only goes to show that cluster system offers a better platform for double coincidence of recruiters' requirements and learners' likings.”

Yash Sheel Srivastava, the Recruitment Secretary of IIM Ahmedabad said, “The focus of the placement process at IIMA has always been to seek better career fit between students and recruiters. To that end, the placement process was kicked off by 6 speaker series spanning traditional fields like consulting and finance and upcoming fields like e-commerce and operations. To ensure better flexibility, we increased dream applications - which allow a student to hold offers from earlier clusters and sit for companies across other clusters to 2. Additionally, 45% of the firms released shortlists up to 15 days prior to the process. A combination of these factors encouraged students to make more educated choices which benefits recruiters and students alike.”

Hi All, I want to apply for IIMs and I have a query regarding EWS certificate. I had applied for EWS but I got it in my regional format (marathi). The college I am applying is not accepting this format. And I am confused of how to apply the format that they want. Does that format has any name ? TIA

Akram Khan 28th Jan, 2020

Hi,

Many institution give the format of the document required in their information brochure or at the official site. So visit the official site of CAT exam. There in the certificate section you will find the format of all the certificate required.

From there download the  EWS certificate. And after proper attestation submit it.

Hope it helps.

I have calls from IIM A,B,C and I am sure I will covert at least one of them. I have a full-time offer from Axtria with in-hand cash 10LPA + other benefits over and above in campus placements. I know its too early to ask without clearing IIM interviews, but which one to choose? IIM/Job?

Vikas gehlot 21st Jan, 2020

The answer depends upon several factors

The first and foremost thing is that if you are interested in management jobs then you should choose IIM but it is not a simple because on one hand you are losing a job and as well as the fee for IIM is very high and you need to take a loan so you have to think on that line also.

The one cases if you are financially very strong and you can find your studies without taking loan then it is best to go for IIM or else if you can get anthem scholarship then it is also good to choose IIM.

In the case when you need to take a loan you need to be prepared that you have to repay the loan and it will take around 2 to 3 years to repay the loan.

The best part in choosing Iim is that you will be going in management jobs and it will guarantee you a safe future.

if you have not explore the field in which you got the job offer then it is also advisable that you explore sometime the field in which you got the job maybe give 2 to 3 years and then try for IIM. Getting into IIM is not an easy job therefore it is recommended that try the best way possible in your interview if you get in then best up on your financial situation you should choose it..

Harshita Gupta 18th Jan, 2020
Hey,

IIM has given the criteria for PwD under the " Rights of person with Disabilities Act 2006" and according to it, a person must not have disabilities less than 40% , which means disability should be 40% affective.
The categories of disabilities considered under the Act are as follows:
  • Blindness and low vision.
  • Deaf and hard of hearing.
  • locomotor disability including cerebral palsy, leprosy cured, dwarfism, acid attack victims and muscular dystrophy.
  • autism, intellectual disability, specific learning disability and mental illness.
And few others. So according to the last point mentioned above, you are eligible and might get admission in pwd category if you meet the requirements of scores and cut-off and if you fulfill the criteria.

I am a chartered accountant and belonging to non creamy obc layer . what percetile should I get to get a call from iim Ahmedabad

Sampriti Student Expert 17th Jan, 2020
For OBC candidates the minimum overall percentile required in CAT is 75 with the sectional cutoffs being 65 in each section. But you should score 80-85 percentile in order to be on the safer side as IIMs do a very rigorous shortlisting based on the profile, candidate's CAT percentile and extra curricular achievements.

All the very best
