'07 brings smiles galore at Jamnalal Bajaj

Students at Mumbai's Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies (JBIMS) are a happy lot.

The '07 placements season at JBIMS has brought smiles on the faces of the entire batch of 124 students: everyone got 'placed' on Day One! What's more, there were more than two offers per student, with the average number of offers per student at 2.38.

While the highest domestic salary offered was Rs. 15 lakhs (currently under revision), the average salary crossed the Rs 10 lakh mark.

The highest overseas offer was for $ 85,000.

In the batch, 20% received lateral offers; 25% received pre-placement offers. Companies extending lateral offers included PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PWC), Standard Chartered, Cognizant Technology Solutions and Pfizer. There were also niche profiles, like private equity offered in the laterals space.

The consulting sector got a big boost this time, with 15% of the batch choosing to work with this sector -- which is almost twice the number last year. Jobs in this sector were offered by companies like McKinsey & Co, Accenture, PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PWC), KPMG, Tata Strategic Management Group, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, and IBM Consulting, while profiles ranged from management and strategy consulting, to operations and supply chain consulting to financial advisory.
