Goa Institute of Management (GIM) is all set to close out yet another strong year of placements for its PGDM students. At the moment, the placements are more or less on par to what they were last year but with the strong pipeline of recruiters who have committed to hiring in January, this year is expected to close stronger than last year. This year has already seen 29 new companies visiting the campus and making offers to the students.
Some of the prominent companies that have hired so far include Deloitte, Cognizant, Arcesium, Asian Paints, Wipro, and Infosys, Hindustan Unilever, Brittania, Reckitt Benckiser. Among the new recruiters this year are Varun Beverages, Grant Thornton, Quest Global and GP Global Worldwide. The Operations domain has also seen strong numbers, with Alstom being one of the notable recruiters.
GIM Placement chair, Prof. Umesh Mahtani, speaking on the trend this year said, â€œIT/ITES and consulting companies have increased the numbers they recruited this year. The representation of companies in the FMCG sector also has been strong. For consulting roles we have had a larger number of companies, notable being Deloitte, EY, GEP Worldwide, Grant Thornton, and Accenture. Around 15-20 more companies are expected in January and we are confident of continuing our track record of 100% placements. We are also expecting the average salaries to be higher than last year.â€
