Indian School of Business gets all-time high of 1,093 job offers
Hyderabad: The Indian School of Business (ISB) has grabbed an all-time high of 1,093 job offers this year. ISB has 812 students in its two campuses in Hyderabad and Mohali.
On Thursday, ISB said that it has seen a significant jump in job offers from large corporates as well as start-ups.
In its ongoing placements, the B-school this year adopted a flexible hybrid placement model, moving away from the structured way it used to follow, helping recruiters have exclusive days to do the hiring.
“Apart from resulting in the highest number of job offers this year, the hybrid model of placements also resulted in higher pay packages,” the B-school said in a statement, without revealing the pay packages.
The biggest recruiters, like in previous years, were consulting firms McKinsey, Boston Consulting Group, EY, Deloitte and KPMG, who offered 19% of the total jobs, so far.
This was followed by technology and tech services companies like Microsoft, Apple, Philips, HCL, Tech Mahindra and Directi, making up 11% of the offers.
E-commerce companies such as Amazon and Flipkart have made 109 offers so far.
Start-ups, ISB said, competed hard with established recruiters picking up 7% of the class across sectors like technology, telecom, e-commerce, transportation and education with senior management roles on offer.
Other prominent sectors like banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI), healthcare and pharma sectors too made 8% of the total offers.
ISB this year also saw an uptick in the offers for senior positions. “This year the quality of hiring has also improved compared to previous years. A total of 92 offers for senior leadership roles and global leadership programmes were made. These include several CXO level positions,” it said.
Interestingly, the Andhra Pradesh government too made 11 offers this year to students who can join as chief minister’s fellows to develop strategic initiatives and implementation of policies for the state.
ISB’s flagship post graduate programme in management is a year-long course and costs around Rs.25 lakh.
