Well....... here is the final placement report for 2005 from IIM Calcutta.....
Before that ... a few things i wud like to add myself ..... okay okay ... it wont be long .... 😃

The year was great with many day 0 comapnies making offers only at IIM C + few other day 0 making their highest offers at IIM C. Out of day zero companies Mckinsey made almost double the offer they made at other campus. Dredsner KW , a very prestigiuous I Bank, which went only to two campuses in India made offers only at IIM C. Many othe recruited solely from IIM C. Infact almost all the consulting firms made their highest offers at IIM C.

Another star were the Private Equity Firms. WIth IIM C pioneering the participation PE firms via GAP in summers, Finals also saw the Global Private Euity Giant Sun Group International participating only at IIM C. Private equity worldwide is considered a better option than I Banking worlwide and as of now its a priveledged club of just 1200 ppl. Before coming to IIM C they recruited only from Ivy Legue Us school .. Talk about going global...:) . And then the Hedge Fund sector also pioneered via IIM C.

Hmm ... i wanted to add few more things ...... kahir anyway ... read the report urself...:)


Final Placements 2005 Report from IIM Calcutta
The traditionally strong recruiter perception of IIM Calcutta has once again manifested itself in the stellar success of Final Placements 2005. The graduating batch size of 240 students, the largest across all premier business schools attracted the crme de la crme among firms in India and abroad as well as the most coveted jobs on offer. The fact that the entire batch was placed by Slot 2 speaks volumes about the confidence that top recruiters across the globe have in IIM Calcutta. Top companies such as McKinsey and Co., The Boston Consulting Group, AT Kearney, Deutsche Bank, HSBC (IBA), UBS Investment Banking, Dresdner Investment Banking, IFC (World Bank), SUN Group, Temasek Holdings, Citibank, Standard Chartered, Morgan Stanley India, Mittal Steel, British Gas, ICICI Bank, ICICI Securities, Rabo Bank, PwC and many others made the highest number of offers across all business schools in India at IIM Calcutta, reaffirming its status as the most preferred campus for recruiters.
An astonishing 139 companies confirmed participation in Final Placements 2005 out of which only 78 companies could come and recruit with the other firms unable to recruit as the entire batch had already been placed.
Continued Strengths in Consulting
IIM Calcutta has traditionally been a favorite hunting ground for global consultancy firms. This year was no different with participation of entire gamut of consulting giants which included Mckinsey & Co., The Boston Consulting Group, AT Kearney, Arthur D Little, Accenture, PwC, KPMG, Ernst & Young, Deloitte, SAP (International Consulting Group). In fact Mckinsey & Co., The Boston Consulting Group, AT Kearney and PwC all made their highest number of offers across all B-schools in India. McKinsey & Co. also made offers for its Singapore office in addition to the Indian offices.

Am not a [email protected] so take my comments with a pinch of salt.

1> Should be not much different from what was mentioned on IIMA's thread by snan. Most of the comps recruiting in big nos from ABC are mostly the same one's.
2> Offered by McK/BCG in India (something like 14L+)and HSBC in London.($100K+)
3> Good acads+Good personality+Good extra currics+Good ..blah..blah..blah..
4> Get under 100 rank in IIT or top CA exam + top your batch at an IIM + Get tons of Gold Medals/certificates for extra currics + Crack all intvs bigtime ...
Do all this and you'll have a surefire [email protected] Slot 0 comps
However, if you have all this, I have no clue what are you doing @ IIM's?
Congrats on a wonderful placement season !

Vijay Natrajan made it to Dubai Wire.

it was real...and wot do u mean by unofficial....using slangs and all instead of harcore nos.
1. take home has hazaar different definitions and it would be better to stick to something dat is more consistent eg c2c...
2. the guy who got the highest sal across the batch is a fresher
3. good academic record, multifaceted personality, being an IITian helps, so does having relevant work-ex...once shortlisted u need to knw ur stuff (fin etc.) to get thru
4.nothing much actually...coz if ur CV isn;t gud the chances of improving it now r pretty low.
