With 27 companies making a beeline to SPJIMR’s campus on day 1 for a batch of 63 candidates, it wasn’t much of a surprise when a total of 104 challenging profiles across varied domains were offered. The recruiters competed against each other, luring the participants with challenging projects in the areas of Marketing Strategy, Process Consulting, SCM Consulting, IT Strategy, Business Research, Pre-sales and International Marketing. It was indeed a dilemma of sorts for those with multiple offers!
The high points of the autumn internships were Siemens Information Systems Ltd making pre-placement offers and few participants getting foreign assignments. The list of companies included some of the giants in the industry such as SAP India, IBM Global Services, GE, Capgemini, TCS, Wipro, Cognizant Technology Solutions, HP, HCL, RPG, Aditya Birla Group, Honeywell, Frost & Sullivan, Alcatel Lucent, Aricent, ICICI, Siemens, M&M;, NCDEX and Nihilent to name a few, with GE making the maximum number of offers.
The companies found that the course PGDSM MIT fosters superior expertise in terms of functional, domain and business knowledge along with values through the pedagogic practices at SPJIMR.
Prof. Abbasali Gabula, Chairperson, External Relations remarked that the industry had positive feedback and were looking forward to come back to campus for final placements.
Prof. Sunil Rai, Joint Director, SPJIMR said that “The enthusiasm and involvement of each and every participant, both in the junior and senior batches was commendable. And of course, the results speak for themselves.”
All in all, the staggering success of the autumn internship process has left impressions in the minds of one and all that promise to last forever, setting a precedent for the final placements.
