Oldest business management institute to take measures for 100% final placement
Kolkata: Indian Institute of Social Welfare & Business Management (IISWBM) is taking a slew of measures to achieve 100 percent placement in the institution.
Rajagopal Dhar Chakraborti has joined as the new director of the oldest B school in the country in the last week of March.
"We want to achieve 100 percent placement. We will be in constant touch with our alumni and seeking their valuable advice for developing our relationship with the industry. We are planning to include the internship of our students as a part of our course," Dhar Chakrabari said.
It may be mentioned that the institute has thousands of alumni based across the world including India. "There are around 2,500 alumni who are in contact with us. A separate cell will be set up to rope in more alumni with the activities of this institute," a senior official said.
He added that the institute will focus on skill development of students and will also recruit at least two more placement officers.
According to the placement cell of the B school, there have been 95 percent placements in MBA, 85 percent in Master of Human Resource Management (MHRM ) and 75 percent in other subjects. "We have to achieve 100 percent placement and for this we are also restructuring our curriculum as per job demands in the market," a senior official of IISWBM said.
As per statistics, in 2015-16 the placement rate was 96 percent, and 98 percent in 2016-17. The placement season starts from November and continues till May.
"There have been 92 percent placements already," an official with the B school's placement cell said.
IISWBM has set a precedence in its placement record this year with one of its students bagging a job with Amazon India with a hefty pay package of Rs 12 lakh.
The B school was set up by the Calcutta University senate together with the then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru and the then Bengal Chief Minister Bidhan Chandra Roy and Dijendra Kumar Sanyal in 1953.
Companies that had participated in the campus recruitment process includes ICICI, Jio, ITC, Marico, Linde India, Khadims, SBI Cards and of course Amazon India to name a few.
