Hiring spree: jobs for all on Day One - The Economic Times

Mumbai B Schools' placement season off to a flying start !

The Economic Times reports:

"It was a history of sorts. Most B-schools in Mumbai placed all candidates on the first day of placements with many companies not getting to see a single student. This wiped out the painful memories of '02 and set the tone for IIM placements. While about 37 companies had to return from the Jamnalal Bajaj Institute, 43 couldn?t get a chance at the SP Jain Institute. The batch of 48 at the Shailesh J Mehta School of Management, IIT Bombay , (SoM) got 71 offers. This works out to approximately 1.5 offer per student. Other top B-schools in the City such as NITIE, NMIMS, Sydenham and Welingkar also recorded a higher turnout of recruiters this year compared to last year. Clearly, it's advantage students. "
