Two milestones were breached with the Final Placements of DoMS, IIT Roorkee’s MBA Class of 2006. The first that it was declared closed in few hours flat, for the batch size of 47 students; and the second was surpassing the 6 lac mark in terms of average salaries.
DOMS witnessed top brands virtually fighting for the top slots in the placement week. And as a result of it, the week got reduced into days. Celebration time started as all candidates of the Class of 2006 got offers at least 4 months prior to graduation.
Best of the best Market Research firms shared slots with the IT majors while the top BPO firms didn’t allow themselves to be left behind. There were Consulting bigwigs alongside Auto firms vying for their share of talent. The Financial sector desired to make its mark while firms from other sectors have completely missed the pie.
But of the 30 companies that confirmed to participate, just 15 firms got to recruit the batch by the time it completely ran out of candidates, as a result of which some companies had to return back empty while some others were requested to withhold their visit.
Participating firms this year included Infosys, Bristlecone, WNS Global Services, HCL Tech, Genpact, TCS, Hewlett Packard, Sun Microsystems, IBM, Balmer Lawrie, TNS Global, Bajaj Auto, Satyam, IMRB, Newgen, Manhattan Associates, AC Nielsen, Oracle, Futures First, eValueserve, Aditi Technologies, SBI Caps, Mahindra British Telecom, Cadila Pharma, Mckinsey KC, eServe International, Ispat and 3i Infotech amongst others.
It was as encouraging to see the increasing number of lateral offers and PPOs coming in, as it was to see the offers being made on-the-spot. With the placements only getting better and better every year, DoMS, IIT Roorkee is set to breeze into the B-School superleague.
