This year, average pay increased by more than 10% across the top 25%, 50%, and overall, with the highest salary offered to be Rs. 18 lakhs per year.
“With the pandemic accelerating the shift to digital transformation, IFMR GSB’s focus on embedding data-science across all subjects attracting a large canvas of new recruiters to the campus,” said Prof Lakshmi Kumar, Dean of IFMR GSB at Krea University. “While the average salaries have grown across bands, it’s heartening to note that students are pivoting more to exciting roles that provide them long-term career growth than merely be fixated on compensation and benefits”.
