The final placements at the Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore (IIM-B) began here on Tuesday. With a strength of 379 in the 2013 batch, around 140 companies are expected to visit the campus for recruitment, according to IIM-B officials. This year, there has been a departure from a practice that was introduced last year when placements were spread over the weekends.
Last year, the final placements at IIM-B saw 363 PGP students of the 2012 batch getting 423 offers from 126 companies. Of these, 206 were made during the final placements, 124 (for students with more than 22 months of work experience) during lateral placements and the remaining 93 were pre-placement offers. A total of 43 overseas offers were made. These offers were made for Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, London, Paris, New Jersey, Dallas and Seoul.
