388 Bangalore Students Get Placed With High Salaries

Amidst all the economic gloom, there is some news one can be merry about as recruitments seem to be picking up. The Indian Institute of Management Bangalore is leading the way with all its students getting placed with record highs in salaries this placement season.

On the brink of the career of their dreams, 388 students of IIM Bangalore have got placed within just four days during campus placements at the B-School. While sources say some students commanded salaries as high as Rs 30 lakh a year, students also got to choose from a slew of sectors like consulting, finance, operations and marketing.

“There is a rise of 10 to 15 per cent form last year. The salary for this batch is about Rs 19.5 lakh,” said Professor Sankarshan Basu, Chairperson, Career Development Services.
Nine of the students have opted to work in the social sector to work at institutions like Narayan Hrudayalaya.

Of course, IIMs represent the cream of talent and their students getting good placements is no surprise. But what is also true is that it bides well for students graduating from other Tier two and three institutes, raising hopes for students in both management and other professional courses.

Fears of the slow economic growth impacting salaries have been allayed and the lot has also managed to get placed ahead of its peers in other IIMs like Ahmedabad and Kolkata.


Dear Friends & Colleagues!

ImageI am beyond thrilled to share some exciting changes going on at INN Live Media Group! While the initial intent behind the company hasn’t changed (create a brighter future through the balance of people, planet and profit), a definite shift has occurred! I’m partnering with two beautiful and highly talented colleagues – Rajat Kapoor and Mamta Rai – (lucky me!) to deliver comprehensive programs designed to do one thing: enable businesses and the people in them to do mindful work. That’s what we’re passionate about.

Why the emphasis on mindful work?
We’re operating in a complex global economy where noise levels are high, attention spans short and our interactions disconnected. It’s from a mindful place that authentic leadership is present, trust is strengthened, teams are mobilized and results are truly sustainable. While our media group remains committed to social responsibility and the tenets of sustainability and philanthropy, the shift in focus honors the critical foundation that must be present for conscious – and thus socially responsible – action. The work of our media group sets out to transform cultures. Becoming more mindful can change everything!

Find out how! Visit our new overview site to learn more. I think you’ll find our model of (re) discover – (re) connect – (re) ignite timely! A robust offering of assessments, off-sites, coaching & consulting are customized to meet each client’s unique business and culture. A free discovery session lays the groundwork.

I’d LOVE to talk with you about mindfulness in your organization. Shoot me an email by responding to this note, or give us a direct mail at CLICK HERE.
