50% students at XLRI GMP have been placed via the placement process, but there are plenty others who have secured jobs off-campus, as Feb onwards, people were allowed to approach companies on their own. Now, these people do not declare that they have already got offers, so that they can sit for the companies coming to campus as well. If by May, they still do not get placed via campus, they would come forward and declare that they have a job, and join it.. this happens every year. So, you should have the real figures only by June first week.
1 important point regarding ISB: Their placement figures always state the number of offers made vis-a-vis the number of students. But please visit the campus and talk to the present batch students before making your decision. The reason being, about 10-15% of the batch receives more than 3 offers, whereas about 10% of the batch does not get placed at all. Also, a lot of offers are also in the range of 8-10 lacs per annum. So, ISB can conveniently count these as offers, but these offers are useless, as no one would take up an 8 lac job after shelling out 27 lacs in fees. These stats are conveniently hidden in their placement report. Ofcourse, from long term perspective, the ISB brand is well recognised in the industry. But for the placement game, talk to the current students to get the real picture.
Hey, I am withdrawing my admission today. Just thought I should let the waitlisted folks know who are waiting to be confirmed
