Even as students of the new class graduating in 2010 have started their course at the Indian School of Business, the leading management institute founded by some of the world’s most respected corporate figures in the world at Hyderabad still has an unfinished task at hand – that of placing all of its students of the previous batch.
The premier business school has so far placed around 80-85 per cent of the students of the batch of 437 students who joined its campus a year ago and the placement process is still on, a company official who did not wish to be identified told Hindustan Times.
“The placement process is still going on and we expect that the total number of companies that participated would go up to 250,” the official said, but did not give a specific timeline about when the process is likely to be complete.
ISB spokespersons could not be reached for comments.
Last year, at the beginning of April, ISB had said that 230 companies had participated in the placement process and made over 650 job offers to its 418 students.
Recently, ISB announced that 579 students had enrolled for the management programme this year, up 24 per cent from those who joined in 2008.
