Record placements at IIPM
More than 10,000 students at IIPM have been placed on campus in the last five years, spanning more than 1500 companies. The international placements have also set a new benchmark. More than 250 IIPM students got internationally placed in the last three years on campus. The last two years have seen IIPM Delhi getting the highest numbers in global placements in India with 165 students in the year 2008 and 55 students in the year 2009.

The current year for the class of 2010 has already witnessed 2480 on campus recruitments and it is not over yet with the remaining 140 students also likely to get placed soon. Average all India packages this year have been Rs 4.63 lakh so far.

The largest numbers of jobs in campus this year have been for marketing and sales followed by finance and then HR. BFSI (banking financial services and insurance) corporations which had suddenly vanished from campuses in 2009, are now back this year with about 20 per cent of the offerings.

Leading BFSI companies like Standard Chartered, HDFC Bank, HSBC, Fidelity, Barclay, India Bulls, India Info line, and some financial consulting companies like KPMG (Delhi), Goldman Sachs, E&Y have offered financial /business research profiles to IIPM students. ICICI has recruited 320 students this year and visited all IIPM campuses and Yes bank, which is this year’s largest recruiter at IIM campuses also made sure it visited IIPM Delhi.

International literature competition
Soon to be held, the literature competition is dedicated to providing a forum for the writer to display their talents. This year the submissions are limited to only 1000 and there are no limits on genre, subject matter, or origin of the writer. All stories must be either in English or Spanish.

The Competition is seeking short stories only. A classic definition of a short story is that one should be able to read it in one sitting, a point most notably made by Edgar Allan Poe. The deadline is July 31, 2010. For more details write to

The event celebrates writing as the interaction of complex processes — rhetorical, cognitive, social, and intuitive — that develop through social acquisition, formal training, and reflective practice.
