New Delhi: The Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta, (IIM-C) said on Tuesday that more than 100 students in the 280-strong class of 2010, or more than one in every three students in the graduating class, had a job offer in hand.
The school began its on-campus recruitment for students with work experience in January. This hiring, called lateral placements, will go on till the first week of March, when the school launches its final placement season where recruiters meet with students without work experience or those who chose not to sit for laterals.
The laterals have, so far, got “more than double the companies which came last year,” said Samyukktha Thirumeni, a student who interacts with the media. She said salaries were “considerably higher” with a few offers above Rs20 lakh per year. She declined comment on what salaries were offered at laterals last year.
