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.”

t’s wonderful if you want to study at IIM ABCKL, but there are other brilliant institutes at well.  SP Jain is great for marketing.

XLRI has a good BM course and a best-of-the-bunch HR course.

IIFT Delhi and FMS are premier b-schools as well.

NITIE has the best operations course in India.

So you have wide range of options to select the colleges and there will be GDPI sessions which will also play a key role in getting into premium institutes.
