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.”
