Hey puys!

With the C interviews ending yesterday, I'm pretty sure all the main interviews for most of us have come to an end. Now comes the short (perceivably loooong) and anxious wait before the results.. Wishing everybody here the very best of luck for all the final stage results!

Apart from the CWC going on, any suggestions on what to do to keep the mind away from the results? 

PS: I started watching Modern Family and I love it!

38! / 41. remainder ?

  • The formula can be derived using wilson theorem as follow.... 52m.
~ If people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane ~  
Rupali Goyal @Goyal.Rupali 42

The formula can be derived using wilson theorem as follows:

((p-1)! + 1 )/p = Remainder 0

(p-1)!/p = Rem p-1

(p-1) (p-2)! /p = Rem 1

(p-2) (p-3)! /p = Rem (no. which is factor of p-2 and will give remainder 1 by p)

Now in question:

40!/41 = 40/41

40* 39! /41 = 40/41

39! /41 = 1/41

39*38! /41 = 1/41

In LHS, numerator is factor of 39 which will give remainder 1 with 41

so, numerator can be represented as 39k = 41k' + 1

39k=39k' + 2k' + 1

now for k'=19 the eqaution will hold true

therefore, numerator is 39*19 + 2*19 + 1 = 39*19 + 39 = 39*20

39*38! /41 = 1/41 can be written as 39*38! /41 = 39*20/41 or 38!/41=20/41

Hi Guys

An interview with Prof. Abbasali Gabula, Deputy Director, External Relations, SPJIMR.

Prof. Gabula talks about placements for the PGDM 2013-2015 at SPJIMR


Q: What is the broad overview of placements at SPJIMR for 2015?

SPJIMR's placements for 2015 closed on a high with leading companies hiring more candidates on campus, reflecting a robust/stronger economy, the improved ranking of the Institute and our deeper engagement with the corporate sector. The total number of companies hiring on campus stood at 78 in 2015 against 108 in 2014 because most companies increased their hiring from SPJIMR and absorbed the batch early on in the placement process. Almost one-third of the companies are first time recruiters at SPJIMR.

Q: What are the numbers in terms of offers, salaries and the like?

A total of 256 offers were made to the 2015 batch that comprised 232 participants, out of which four opted out of the placements process. This translates to an average 1.1 offer per student.The average salary increased to 18.2 lakh, with 80 per cent of the batch receiving offers of Rs.15lakh and above. The median salary for the batch of 232 participants stood at Rs.17 lakh.Almost half of the Class of 2015 (48%)received pre-placement offers or pre-placement interviews through autumn internships at leading corporate houses, including Amazon, Asian Paints, Axis Bank, Colgate-Palmolive, Dell, Flipkart, GE, GSK CH, HSBC, HUL, Mondelez, L'Oreal, Mahindra & Mahindra, Marico, Microsoft, P&G and TAS.

One of the notable trends this year was graduates preferring Indian offers over international postings, a reflection of India emerging as a choice destination among young professionals.

Q: On an industry specific question, what has been the response of FMCG companies in hiring the candidates?

SPJIMR maintained its niche in FMCG hiring. This year witnessed the top FMCG companies lining up on campus to make offers to the Marketing and Operations batch. 14%of students were given out offers by the FMCG sector.

Sales, Marketing and Supply Chain roles were made by FMCG majors that included Col-Pal, GSK CH, HCCB, HUL, Mondelez, L'Oreal,Marico, P&G, Mars, Nivea. Lateral hires were picked up by HUL, GSK CH etc.

Q. What kind of roles were offered in the field of Finance and IT?

This year 11% of the batch got offers from the Financial Services and Banking Sector. Top league financial players included Axis Bank, Avista Advisory, Franklin Templeton, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, Citibank to name a few.

Also corporate Finance roles were offered by Amazon, Dell, Flipkart, GE and Vodafone among others.

Around 12% of the batch received offers from IT majors. Corporate IT roles were offered from companies such as General Electric, HUL and Marico

Q. How has the trend changed in terms of E-commerce hiring?

This year SPJIMR witnessed a splurge in the offers coming from e-commerce companies. 23% of the batch was placed in e-commerce firms which included Amazon, Flipkart, Snapdeal, Infoedge among others.

The profiles offered by the e-commerce bandwagon at SPJIMR included category management, product management, online and offline marketing, business process excellence, operations and business analytics.

Q. What were the profiles offered in the field of Consulting?

The profiles offered in the field of consulting included strategic consulting, operations consulting, financial advisory and IT consulting. 17% of the batch was placed in top consulting firms which included the Boston Consulting Group, Cognizant Business Consulting,Deloitte, IBM, PwC, KPMG, PRTM Consulting, TSMG, Avalon Consulting among others.

Q. In terms of various specialisations, what did the offers look like this year?

For the Operations specialisation, we saw 27%of the participants receiving offers from the e-commerce sector, 22% from the FMCG sector and 17% for consulting. Other offers came from the IT sector, retail,pharma, and the telecom sectors.

In the Finance specialisation, 36% of the offers came from banking and financial services, 20% from consulting, 13% from e-commerce, with other offers from investment banking, IT, telecom and retail.

Within the IM specialisation, 30% of offers were from the e-commerce sector, while 24% of the offers came from consulting and another 24% from the IT sector. Other offers came from the FMCG sector,retail and banking.

The Marketing specialisation saw 35% of the offers from the FMCG sector and 25% received offers from the e-commerce sector.Other offers came from banking, consulting, retail, pharma and telecom.

Q.Whatis IPRS, what is the IPRS process and how often is the report issued? Where can we see the full and the latest IPRS?

The Indian Placement Reporting Standards (IPRS) is a framework that aims at standardisation of placement reports to make them more transparent and easy to understand, more comparable and reliable for making decisions. IPRS specifies the standard format in which the placement statistics will be reported across function, sector, and location. The aggregate statistics to be published include minimum, maximum, median and average salaries across every parameter,so that B-school employment reports are used in a fair and accurate manner to attract students and employers and to enable aspirants make a well informed choice, thereby resulting in more realistic expectations on their part when they join a B-school.

SPJIMR was amongst the first to sign up for IPRS alongside IIM Ahmedabad and is the only institute we believe to submit copies of offer letters for the audit purpose. Thus it takes a little longer time than usual for the IPRS report to be published. The reports are available on the IPRS website and can be downloaded for viewing purpose. The link for viewing
