The outcome of the placement process clearly demonstrates the strength of the programme and the value that recruiters see in hiring our students for their talent needs at mid to senior level positions. Despite 2020 being a COVID year that disrupted all the organizations and processes, placements at IIMA smoothly transitioned into the virtual mode and the outcomes speak of the determination, resilience and commitment of our placement team, and the faith that the recruiters have in the programme. We wish our graduates great success in their careers.”

Saurabh Agrawal, PGPX Recruitment Secretary added, “The fifteenth batch of PGPX started amidst the strict Covid lockdowns and despite uncertainty looming large over the market demand for hiring senior professionals, it gives me immense pleasure to say that we have surpassed in many parameters of the past years. The numbers speak for the strength of the programme and the value organizations find in hiring the students from this programme. We have seen an increased interest from some of the well-established start-ups hiring from this programme for the senior management roles and it was well complimented by the traditional recruiters from IT, Consulting, Pharma & Conglomerates. The experienced and diverse cohort of the programme assures a greater alignment between the organizational needs and candidate’s aspirations. We have strengthened our relationship with our long-associated recruiters and have partnered with many new organisations this year. We take pride in the continued trust the organisations have bestowed upon IIMA’s PGPX Class of 2021 and are confident that PGPX graduates will continue to excel in every role and responsibility undertaken by them.”
