IIM Kokata | Placement rises 33 percent from last year
The Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta (IIM-C) conducted its summer placements for the batch of 2009-11 from November 4 to November 9, 2009. The process, which lasted for six days (including a Sunday), ended with all 407 students of the batch landing with an offer.
With the new Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) stipulations, IIM-C had a larger intake than any other IIM. This gave rise to a batch, which was bigger than any other seen in any IIM's history, recording a 33% increase from last year.
The batch had its highly diverse background, with students who held offers from colleges such as NYU Stern, Cornell, University of Bocconi (Italy), London School of Economics and HEC Paris among others. Many had worked in firms such as Deutsche Bank, JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse, McKinsey and Merrill Lynch before coming to IIM-C.
The 2009-11 batch boasted of diversity generally unseen in Indian B-schools.
