IIM Bangalore  Placements

The placement process practised at IIM Bangalore is a student-friendly one. While the institution’s reputation attracts a host of companies looking to bolster their ranks with IIMB alumni, the Placement Cell consists of human resource veterans who use their extensive network to ensure that only the best brands come in for recruitment.

The Student Placement Representatives are the student members who act as the spokespeople for the student body’s placement interests. This process has proved itself to be highly effective and since 2008, IIMB has a consistent 100% placement record.

IIM Bangalore has three kinds of placements programmes taking place in a year – Summer Internship Placements for 1st Year students, Lateral Placements for 2nd Year students with 22+ months of prior work experience, and Final Placements for all 2nd Year students.

Needless to say, all of them are highly successful every year, and other than the Lateral Placements which are rolling in nature, the others are completed in nearly 4 days. There is no question of students remaining unplaced.

However, a few of them opt out to either start something on their own or join their family businesses. Another wonderful initiative of IIM Bangalore is its NSRCEL which an on-campus incubator for start-ups and provides strong support to budding entrepreneurs.
