Completely student driven, IMT Nagpur’s 2010-12 placements have taken the management institute to new, un-scaled heights.
An increasing number of companies are looking at IMT Nagpur to employ quality managers - an attribute that has been established over the eight years that the institute has been in existence.
This Year 68 companies have visited the B-School and have employed 200+ students who opted for placements.
Guided by faculty, the placement process at IMT Nagpur is student driven. Teams of student representatives are chosen and trained to become the face of IMT Nagpur. Once trained, they visit organisations and invite representatives to visit IMT Nagpur’s vibrant and beautiful campus during placement season.
Due to the untiring efforts put in by the Placement Committee, the year 2011-12 at IMT Nagpur has seen a good response from new recruiters. Though market conditions are unpredictable and tough, there were 32 new recruiters at IMT Nagpur this year.
These new recruiters included big industry names like Eveready Industries, Johnson and Johnson, Bharat Forge, Tata International, ITZ Cash, Allahabad Bank, UCO Bank, etc.
“IMT Nagpur has maintained the faith of many organisations over the past 8 years. The institute is committed to excellence and innovation in management learning and to developing academic processes which are not only conceptual but analytical and decision-oriented,” says Prof. Harshvardhan Halve, Chairperson, Placement Committee.
An added recruitment advantage came from the efforts of IMT Nagpur’s alumni. Most of them see the value of the education imparted at IMT Nagpur and return to their alma mater for recruitment. They helped their companies choose new managers who would prove to be assets in the future.
