Goa Institute of Management sees strong growth in placements this year

January 7, 2017

Goa Institute of Management (GIM), one of the premier B-Schools in India, is all set to close out yet another strong year of placements for its PGDM students. GIM has a strong pipeline of recruiters who will be visiting the institute for campus placement in January.
This year has already seen 30 new companies visiting the campus and making offers to the students. Some of the prominent campus hirers include Deloitte, Cognizant, Arcesium, Asian Paints, Wipro, Infosys, Hindustan Unilever, Britannia, Reckitt Benckiser, Godrej and Boyce, Standard Chartered Bank. Some of the new recruiters this year are Varun Beverages, Grant Thornton, Quest Global and GEP. The operations domain has also seen strong numbers, with Alstom being one of the notable recruiters.

Speaking on the trend this year, GIM placement chair, Professor Umesh Mahtani, said, “IT/ITES and consulting companies have increased the numbers they recruited this year. The representation of companies in the FMCG sector also has been strong. For consulting roles we have had a larger number of companies, notable being Deloitte, EY, GEP, Grant Thornton, and Accenture. Around 15-20 more companies are expected in January and we are confident of continuing our track record of 100 percent placements this year. The consistency in the track record of placements has put GIM in the top league of B-Schools in India.”

The Healthcare Management (HCM) Programme of Goa Institute of Management (GIM) has always been well-received by recruiters. 80 percent of the students are already placed and the placement team is on the way to a 100 percent placement record. The average package of students has seen an increase from Rs. 7.8 lakh p.a. last year to Rs. 8.1 lakh p.a. this year. The highest package is Rs 14 lakh p.a. offered by a leading ITES company and was offered to a student from nursing background, undergoing the HCM programme. Another new development this year is the opening up of winter, paid consulting projects on campus with 30 percent of the first year students engaged in these live projects where they are able to implement the concepts learnt in the class. The institute expects 100 percent of the HCM students to be satisfactorily placed by the end of January 2017.

Prof. Shawnn Coutinho, placement chair – Healthcare Management (HCM) Programme said, “What marks a change this year is the number of new companies on campus and new sectors opening up to the students, namely medical devices and pharmaceuticals. Summer internships have also seen the same rigour as last year with a diversification into medical devices.”

Incepted in 1993, the Goa Institute of Management (GIM) is one of the premier management schools in the country which has systematically built a rich learning environment through engagement with academia, industry and alumni. To learn more, visit www.gim.ac.in.
