RD placements in XISS are usually 80-100% per year. That is not the case with marketing. The primary reason being every college has 1 or 2 courses that are well established( in terms of faculty, how long the course has been followed, placements, industry exposure, reputation among the hiring companies, etc.) as compared to the other ones within. RD was established in 1955, the time XISS started off functioning immediately followed by PM and in '80s by IM. Marketing and Finance are set up 5 yrs. ago, so definately it cannot be compared to the level industrial reputation of RD or PM. XISS was primarily set up for rural developement of the under-developed sections of Jharkhand-Bihar-Bengal-Orissa circle, so RD and PM are the so called "flagship-departments" of the insti..

This year 2010 around 90% of the RD batch has been placed, but interestingly for PM its been only 25-27%. For Marketing its around 20%.
I can't comment on the companies' list that came for RD, but the sectors were primarily rural areas in Jharkhand, Gujarat etc...Avg pckg around 3.5 Lkhs and companies both from private and state-government NGO's. The companies that came for Marketing (Final Placements-2010) are:
1. Colgate-Palmolive
2. Basix
3. Mahindra Finance
4. SBI-Life
...and a few others.. Avg. Pckg being: 3 Lkhs...

Marketing( Internships 2010):
1. Yamaha Motors
2. Ramco Systems
3. Reliance Money
4. Reliance Retail
5. Indian Oil Corp.
...and through personal/faculty contacts guys have made it to:

TATA steel
DLF
Standard chartered
Videocon
ITC...and several others..

Interestingly big-houses like Hero-Honda, Moser-Baer, Vedanta, TATA steel, Jindal Steel,L&T;, HCL have come for PM, but again the placements being 25-27% of the batch. So definately it depends on the batch and again on the candidate where in his/her interests lie.

Marketing is catching up fast, so if you have interest in the domain, DO NOT HESITATE TO JOIN.. but comparing the placements with RD, it would take time to match.. RD is xciting, you will go for rural visits every trimester, spendin 10-14 days in utmost rural locations..which is both fun and learning.. and most probably in your professional job too after u pass out.
and YES, marketing has fewer girls, ur seniors has 1:3 girl:boy ratio..the reason again, the nature of the job one has to do in organisation after college-life...maybe that's a criteria.. and personal choices too.. whereas in RD the girl:boy ratio is almost equal.

I am not getting whether u r asking me to go for XISS or not and whether u r suggesting me that finance mkt etc are not good courses?

I want some real and steady answers not some diplomatic and philosophical answers because its cut throat competition out there in WORLD so i need a good backing and launching pad.


If you need a launching pad then i would recommend you go for other colleges
XISS is not meant for launching unless the student is not upto the standards

Placements were approximately 30% (xcept RD where it's still going on till date and usually it is 100%), companies visits campus (e.g. for PM there were L&T;, TATA STEEL, Vedanta, for marketing & finance: SBI-LIFE, Mahindra finance, Colgate & Palmolive, Raymonds,etc.) but the student need to perform...sadly the batch is not upto the standard to meet 100%, blame it whoever: the rules,policies of the insti, or seat bookings..whatever.. as i find in the discussions

but you will not find flashy advertises that'll cloud your thoughts regarding placements, as it happens with most other colleges. the fees is pretty decent, the city and culture around here is not upto metro standards, but pretty decent. So if you're looking for industry exposure similar like mumbai, bangalore, delhi...., then sorry you won't get that in ranchi.
The college is 55 yrs old, the same XLRI sister concern, so it has a very good brand image in the industry.

You did consider my opinion off topic, that's really appreciable. i hope you better continue preparing for the GD/PI because the professors are smart people with more than 15-20yrs of industry experiences..so process won't be too easy. I don't know your percentile in XAT, but people with over 95 percentile, with SC/ST category, have been rejected in the interviews.If you've managed more than 75%, with good communication skills.. i think you have a very good chance to clear.

I will always recommend you to go for XISS, for any of the courses you want to pursue. If you want to do MBA for an on-campus placement only, i'm sure XISS is not the platform, because the placement stats clearly suggests. So before u get rejected in the interview, don't attend it, because if the interviewers sense your intentions about MBA, then it'd be worthless spending the day here. As you stated: "its cut throat competition out there in WORLD" .. believe me, it's even more to get selected in the insti.

Don't go after PM, RD, Marketing, Finance or IM by just their names.... If you are interested, then attend the GD/PI process, follow your heart...what you want to do ahead with the qualification, how you are going to face the comapny interviews... on-campus or off-campus is a secondary issue...

If you are interested, then attend the GD/PI process, follow your heart...what you want to do ahead with the qualification, how you are going to face the comapny interviews... on-campus or off-campus is a secondary issue..so DONT go just by the facts and figures.. if you are capable then there's no one stopping you, and you will succeed...

Issues regarding faculties, placements are existing in every college, every department..if you are interested in taking up any course, if you have the zeal to pursue it..then just do it..and stop believing in grapevine
applicant has to fill and pay for each different course separately.. there's a common application form and applicant can choose only 1 course out of the specified 5...so applicant needs to fill separately 5 aplication forms and pay for 5 different courses separately PM is the flagship depart...

PM is the flagship department of XISS.. placements for 2008 has been 60%
RD-- 100% placed in 2008
IM-- 15-20% placed in 2008
MKT-- 30% in 2008
FIN-- 30% in 2008

avg.pckg was around 3-5lkhs/annum
so that clears ur doubt i guess
