@ashu.juit said:Wasn't there any international placements in 2012?(details not available on website)The placement scenario has improved alot compared to previous years('11,'10)What is the reason behind this surge in packages offered?Is this growth in the placements sustainable ?What about the lateral placements for the work ex people...do companies give better package to work ex people or is it same as freshers ?Which companies gave 8+ package last year?IIFM is considered one of the best sectoral institutes in indiaIt has a good repute globally; which is comparable to other sectoral colleges(eg NITIE, IRMA, MICA etc)...but in terms of placements it lags behind...dont know why.Work satisfaction coupled with good package will motivate aspirants choosing this prestigious institute over others.Thanks.yes Aditya Birla Group offered intl placements this time..its dere in the website.no reason as such behind the surge in the package..a lil increase is normal every year..yes growth is sustainable brother coz one is never over paid..regarding the preference for work ex people yes there are companies whr work ex people are at an advantage but not for all..ur Summer Internship is also vital to get a good placement as it reflects ur interest and the kind of company and profile you have interned in.right now we dnt have the details regarding the individual packages of companies but be assured no other college will give you such an ROI!but yes only and only ur interest and self motivation will make you a happy student here.IIFM dsnt market itself as well as NITIE or IRMA so nobdy gets to know wats going on inside.placements are more dan 100% every year and yes its true dat in this sector one can never be paid as high as other sectors or corporates..but wid time one can reach or grow to any level as it has immense repute and respect in the market..your worries are jusfiable at this stage but dnt you worry..

sorry for asking complicated questions but as a student and before applying to college need to know.
my question is why the cutt-off of iifm is so low 75 percentile for GEN and 60 perc for obc .
i know cuttoff is lower limit but there must be guys betn 76,77,78 perc range?
i have also seen prev years cuttoff they were more by 8 percentile .
also i know weitages as 70-cat.
i know a lot is dependent on interview but it is not biased right
as with good answers and our interest in joining b-school u can get good marks.
My question is quality of education and placements becoming low... As there is decrease in cat percentile by 8 percents. abt placemets saying 100% perc is ok . Almost all colleges that were strated betn 1980 have 100% placement....and i know from prev threats that this placement fig are less when compared to actual Package.Package is not important for me but organization that are coming for placement is imp as it will be my important step leaving engineering job and studying 2 years getting management job. none of organization mentioned in website are fimilar a part from some environment and banking sector? what is profile of job offered. are profile of job offered are decreasing so compared to prev years ..
Real question for us is cutt off of all other colleges are increasing .... why that of iifm is decreasing?
are less stduents applying to this college because of decrease in good profile offered ?
NO offense to guys like me working in IT COMPANIES..
(pls dont mentioned information abt work ex guys. as we have tcs guys having 3 years we have 10 infosys guys .every other b-school is full of them.per as i know guys like mech ,entc apart from COMPUTER and IT does not belong those company as they cant handle work pressure (esp -coding and software development jobs) and they ARE working as software tester for so long.They want to leave job as my friend was working with infosys . he is my senior in college same stream .and was working as software test engineer for 4 years....so leaved his job for post grad in management in MICA )
pls give ur sincere opinion ...
