Placement Records

IIM Calcutta’s Final Placement process for the batch of 2011-2013 kicked off on March 3, 2013. The number of students in the batch eligible for placements was 444 (total batch size 462), making this the largest batch in the history of any IIM. Keeping in mind the increase in batch size, the placement strategy this year was modified to focus on inviting new recruiters to campus. Another major shift in strategy was to modify the tight 5-day process adopted last year to a comparatively relaxed 5-day process followed by a rolling process so as to accommodate the huge increase in the number of firms visiting the campus this year. The total number of firms that visited the campus for placements this year was a record 218. This number includes 114 first time recruiters, a huge increase from last time.

The sector-wise split for the various functions is provided below. Finance and Sales & Marketing contributed the maximum percentage of offers (23% and 22% respectively), closely followed by Consulting (20%).

Some of the highlights of the lateral placement process were:
