We had some interesting profiles which included Aeronautical Engineers; Non Engineers included Science and commerce graduates, writers, Journalists and many more. The average work experience of the students varied from 2-6 years.
This varied class profile was not an asset just to the batch but also for the recruiters who visited the campus for recruiting some of the finest talent in the country. This year saw a significant increase in the number of recruiters visiting the campus and salary package. Interesting roles were offered to the students which even included international placements. We also identified some of the best entrepreneurial talents among the batch and supported them in their endeavor.
Both PGPM and PGDM batches that are passing out have brought glory to the institution by winning some of the biggest competitions across various B-Schools and related forums.
