The Indian School of Business on Friday said it has recorded a significant rise in job offers as well as the number of recruiters participating in its integrated placements held at Hyderabad and Mohali campuses.
According to the placement results for the Class of 2013 of ISB's Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP), there was a 21 per cent increase in number of participating companies and 27 per cent rise in the number of job offers.
A total of 741 students participated in the placements process this year, out of the 762 students in the Class of 2013.
As many as 21 students opted out of the process to start their own ventures or return to their companies or family businesses, ISB said.
"We are happy to share that the integrated approach has proved to be a successful model. It has set new benchmarks by attracting the highest number of recruiters who have made the largest number of offers that we have ever received," ISB Deputy Dean Deepak Chandra said.
A total of 421 companies (increase of 21 per cent over last year) have given around 798 offers (increase of 27 per cent over last year) as on date.
"With the rolling placements still underway, and around 5 per cent of the Class participating in various stages of the placements process, these numbers will only increase further, till the process concludes in May," ISB added.
Interestingly, women students at the ISB, who comprise 29 per cent of the class, have done exceptionally well both in terms of offers received as well as roles offered.
A highlight of this year was the "Axis Bank ISB Leadership Programme", where the bank selected 12 women students to build a women leadership pipeline for their organisation, ISB said.
IT sector made the largest number of offers on campus as 300 offers were made by 53 companies, followed by consulting sector which was the second largest recruiter, contributing 163 offers from around 30 companies.
