Gloom at bay, XLRI sees 98% placements
The B-school saw the participation of 75 recruiting companies who made a total of 255 offers. While FMCG firms hired in big numbers at the campus, around 65 students got pre-placement offers from their summer internships with different companies.
The median salary of the batch was over R16.2 lakh per annum. The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) hired five candidates from XLRIís 120 business management students. HR students, too, secured job offers in large numbers across sectors viz consulting, FMCGs and others. ďAgainst the backdrop of an economic slowdown this year, it is truly gratifying to see many respected organisations coming to XLRI year after year for recruiting our talented students; we attribute the excellent placements this year as an affirmation by the industry of the high standards of management-centric education that we strive to deliver to our students,Ē said Father E Abraham, director, XLRI.
Participating FMCG firms, XLRIís forte over the years, included Unilever, Procter & Gamble, ITC, Asian Paints, Castrol, Coca-Cola, among others.
