Placements at FORE School of Management surge ahead as recruiters return to cherry pick grads
5th March 2013
FORE School of Management is well on its way to yet another spectacular placement season! It may be recalled that last year was a landmark year at FORE School of Management with the highest package of 39.6 Lakhs being offered to a student by Prospecta Software Australia Proprietary Limited, with a posting to Australia. Even by those standards, placements this year at FORE School of Management are all set to hit a new high.
It is significant that the highest package in 2012 was offered in the second half of the placement season; while highest package by the end of the first half of placement season of 2012(February-end 2012) was 32 Lakhs offered by Renewable Woods. It is an interesting coincidence that even in 2013 the highest package that has been offered so far is 32 Lakhs. However, in terms of average CTC, so far the figures have bettered last year’s figures, which is very encouraging for both students and the Placement office.
According to the Placement office of FORE School of Management, on-campus placements this year, are moving at a much faster pace than anticipated. All 100% students of the 19th Batch are likely to be placed by April, 2013. So far the highest participation for Final Placements is from IT Sector followed by BFSI (Banking, Financial Services, & Insurance Industry), FMCG, Market Research & Consulting, and Automobile sector.
The offers made to the students of FORE School of Management are through PPOs, PPIs and campus interviews. In 2012, a total of 116 companies had visited the FORE campus for recruitment. Of these, 36 companies had participated for the first time in placements at FORE School of Management, including CBRE, TATA Motors, Maruti Suzuki, EXL Services, United Spirits, Axis Risk Consulting, Khimji Ramdas, HSBC, etc. All of these companies have been present this year as well, apart from the regulars at FORE School of Management placements like Asian Paints, Castrol, Citibank, Infosys, ICICI Bank, Sony, HDFC Bank, Make My Trip, GMR, Thomas Cook Ltd., Oriflame, SBI Life, Ernst and Young, etc.
According to the Placement office of FORE School of Management, the Summer Placements of the batch of 2012-14 are also in full swing, and students are all set to begin their Internship from April 2013. It may be recalled that last year FORE School of Management had placed 100% students for summer internship by mid-March 2012, with an average stipend of Rs. 15,000 per month, and the highest being Rs. 35,000 by CISCO.
Last year, FORE School of Management was ranked head-and-shoulders above the other B-schools in the ‘News X–Indus Learning’ survey, published in ‘Mail Today’, comparing B-schools in North India, and more specifically, Delhi-NCR. FORE School of Management was top-ranked in two out of four categories - ‘Industry Interaction’ and ‘Potential to Network’ - of the survey.
For the last few years, placement figures of FORE School of Management have seen a phenomenal upswing, surpassing most of the other premier B-schools of the country, including most of the IIM’s. In all four students had received international placement offers in 2012. Going by indications, these numbers will also be eclipsed during this year’s placements at FORE School of Management.
