LPU have a extraordinary reputation in terms of placements. There is plenty of placement are there for management students and they have so many options are there to work in like banking, insurance, taxes, law and so on and if I talk about the salary packages the the highest salary package in 21lacs average salary package is 6.37lacs. Yes, finding a job is not a simple endeavour, but if you are career-focused and set small objectives to achieve large things in life, you can easily land jobs at three or more firms in addition to one because many companies visit LPU every year for placements. The university offers PEP classes, mock interview sessions, webinars, workshops, guest lectures from expert students, and other events that help students develop their skills and improve their personalities.
