The placements of the MBAEx batch of the Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta (IIM- C) concluded with their results coming out in flying colours this year. The MBAEx batch, which was known as PGPEX formerly, has become the first cohort that has achieved a 100 per cent placement record for the students of the batch of 2018-2019.
The MBAEx batch of IIM Calcutta is the first to reach such statistics among all the leading MBA programmes of the duration of one year in India. The highest package bagged by a student of the batch is Rs. 1.25 crores, which is at a 40 per cent rise from the highest package of last year. The average salary of the batch graduating this year is Rs. 26.98 lakhs, which is again 10.3 per cent higher than that of last year.
The entire unit of 60 students saw a huge 104 per cent increase in the average salary of students relative to their pre-MBA compensation. The statistics were shared by the institute via an email. Some of the leading recruiters of the MBAEx students at IIM Calcutta this year were Amazon, Oyo, Accenture, Swiggy, Ford, EXL, Zensar, and Sapient.
The Chairperson of the MBAEx programme at IIM Calcutta, Amit Dhiman, said that MBAEx is a highly challenging process and the process of job-person matching is experienced in its truest sense in this programme. In a survey that was conducted recently by the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) and the Times Higher Education (THE), MBAEx is given the 3rd rank among all the global one-year long MBA programs, because of excellent student engagement and great job outcome.
The full-time MBA programmes that are of the duration of a year, like the MBAEx course of IIM Calcutta, provide a platform for learned and experienced professionals for transitioning into the top and mid-management roles across several functions and industries.
