XIMB graduates scale higher peaks

Xavier Institute of Management, Bhubaneswar (XIMB) is among the very few privileged B-schools in India to be on the A+ list of recruiters. XIMB has had a tradition of nurturing well groomed managers and placing them in some of the best companies across various sectors. Good placements give a jumpstart to students making a foray into the corporate world which in turn earns the institute credibility and recognition in the industry.

The fact that the corporate world trusts 'Brand XIMB' for quality recruitments is obvious from the impressive placements record that XIMB has. This year was yet another feather in the cap for both Post Graduate Diploma in Business Management (PGDBM) and Post Graduate Programme in Rural Management (PGPRM) batches of 2007. 100% placements were achieved for both courses on Day 1 of Xuberance 2007, annual campus placement season of XIMB. Considering the rigorous management training and social consciousness XIMB imparts to budding managers this comes as no big surprise.

In the case of PGDBM batch, a total of 98 companies across sectors had shown interest in recruiting students and 72 of them were slotted for the final placement process. Of these, only 63 were lucky to grab students.

New companies on campus included HLL, Dell International, Deloitte Consulting, UBS, HSBC Global Resourcing, Cognizant Technology Solutions, Idea Cellular, Hutch, Grow Talent, Centurion Bank of Punjab and many more.
Maximum representation was from the IT industry and included bigwigs like IBM, Cognizant, Infosys, TCS, Mindtree, Wipro etc.

A total of 309 offers were made to the batch of 118 resulting in 2.62 offers per student. 33 students had Pre-Placement Offers / Interviews (PPOs/PPIs) from companies they had undergone their summer training with.

Companies coming up with the highest number of offers included TCS, Cognizant, Infosys, JP Morgan Chase, IBM, Kotak Bank while highest salaries were offered by Olam International, JP Morgan Chase, Dell International, Godrej and Accenture.

JP Morgan Chase, SBI Caps, Citifinancial, and UTI were major recruiters from the banking and financial services sector while Ernst & Young, Avalon Consulting, Deloitte Consulting, McKinsey Knowledge Centre were the bigwigs on campus for consulting recruitments.

The average salary for the batch rose by 23% and stood at Rs. 8.77 lakhs per annum. The average domestic salary was Rs.8.52 lakhs per annum while the median salary was Rs.8.5 lakhs per annum. Apart from offering the highest number of offers (7) in the banking & financial services sector, JP Morgan Chase also offered the highest domestic salary of Rs. 12.75 lakhs per annum to the PGDBM batch. The highest international offer made was by Olam International at US$ 85,000 per annum. Interestingly, there are 23 students securing a paycheck of over Rs. 9 lakhs per annum.

IT/ITES companies came up with the highest number of offers this year, closely followed by Sales & Marketing and Banking & Financial Services companies. Most students expressed their willingness to work in the IT sector with the highest number of accepted offers in this sector.

It is noteworthy that 35 students rejected a higher paying job offer in lieu of a job profile of their choice. The jobs offered were from varied profiles which included Investment Banking, Supply Chain Management Consulting, Wealth Management, Treasury Management, Talent Acquisition Manager, Area Sales Manager, Industrial Relations Manager, Channel Manager, Corporate Finance, among others.

The average salary for the PGPRM batch rose by 31% at Rs.5.1 lakhs per annum and the median salary being Rs.4.60 lakhs per annum. The highest salary offered this year was Rs. 8 lakhs per annum.

To recruit rural managers, the new companies on campus this year were ICICI Prudential Life Insurance, IFMR, Monsanto, GCMMF (Amul), RK Swamy BBDO, Christian Children Fund, and NANDI Foundation among others. Our regular recruiters; Coromandel Fertilisers Ltd., ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank, SKS Microfinance, Tata Chemicals Ltd., HLFPPT once again registered their presence on campus.

The companies on campus represented the three key areas in rural management, namely, agribusiness, banking & insurance, and development & microfinance. On more than one occasion the profiles offered to the candidates were developed and designed mutually by the recruiter and the candidates, resulting in very challenging and enriching profiles.

Placements are just the reflection of the academic environment, the pedagogy, the dedication of the students and how the industry views a B-school.
