Non-IIM B-Schools Flooded with Finance Job Offers

New Delhi: Non-IIM B-schools have been flooded with offers from the finance profiles. However, the Indian Institutes of Management (IIM) placements were dominated by the consulting profiles, this year.

As per sources, at Delhi’s Indian Institute of Foreign Trade (IIFT), the finance sector has been the largest recruiter with 20% of the batch being placed in it. Similar is the case with Institute of Management Technology (IMT), Ghaziabad where companies from the finance sector recruited 30% of the batch compared to 15-20% in earlier years. Prakash Pathak, chairperson, placement, IMT Ghaziabad has said that traditionally, the biggest recruiters have been information technology (IT) and IT-enabled services that take up to 40% of the students. However, this time, the BFSI sector has picked up momentum by recruiting 30% of our students.
