IIM Calcutta places batch of 2011


Placements at IIM Calcutta ended in style with the 388 strong batch of 2011 grabbing lucrative job offers within 5 days of the placement process.

As the first day unfolded, finance, considered IIM Calcutta's stronghold, saw a manifold increase in the number of offers made compared to last year, with investment banks like UBS, Morgan Stanley, Citigroup, Deutsche Bank and HSBC picking up many students. The offers were for desks across the globe including Singapore.

Students had already received pre-placement offers from firms like Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley,

Barclays Capital, Royal Bank of Scotland, JP Morgan and Credit Suisse. Daiwa Securities, a Japanese

investment bank, recruited 6 students exclusively from IIM Calcutta this year.


Consulting firms made the most number of offers on day 0, with the usual favorite Mckinsey & Co

making 13 offers including 4 pre-placement offers (the highest number of offers made by the firm at

any campus in the country). The firm recruited for its Singapore, Sydney and India offices. BCG, Bain

recruited exclusively from IIM Calcutta as well.

the varied and interesting profiles offered to the students. Private Equity firm Gaja Capital hired for the first time at IIM Calcutta and made 3 offers. Customer solutions firm DPDHL hired a student for an

in-house consulting role for its office in Miami as well.
