Executive MBA Placement at Top B-Schools 2018

It seems like executive MBA courses at leading business schools across the country are attracting popular recruiters. The recent placement numbers of top b-schools clearly indicate that the companies are keen to hire professionals with varied work experience. For instance, the average salary offered to executive management programme graduates at top B-Schools such as XLRI, IIM Calcutta, IIM Bangalore, IIM Indore etc., is Rs. 18 lakh per annum. The highest salary offered to executive graduates of these institutes is up to Rs. 90 lakh per annum.

One of the major reasons for the greater demand for executive management programme graduates is robust work experience and rigorous management education.

The average salary offered to IIM Indore EPGP graduates has increased. This year, Bajaj Allianz, Oyo Rooms, Oracle, Michael Page, PwC and KPMG. At IIM Calcutta, Rivigo, Axis Bank and PwC were new recruiters.
