The Awesome offers

It’s a seller’s market and companies are willing to pay any price to attract the right talent.

The newschannels and papers have been talking all day about the IIM placments.!
INR 34 Lakhs -Highest domestic salary.
INR 86 Lakhs -Highest International Placement.

Provided below is some info about the guyz who bagged these offers.
You'll notice that these folks have considerable work ex.

I won't be surprised if we see a new trend in India.-B Schools hiring more folks with work ex.

ISB started the trend and it seen some good success. The introduction of IIMA-PGPX proves that there is a market for folks with work ex.

I honestly feel that the selection process in India for B school needs to be improved ..It shouldn't be just based on CAT! There needs to some modifications ..GMAT/CAT score, essays,reco letters,PI etc) ....What say.?

i agree with you that MBA should be allowed only to ppl with min of a yr of work ex, even in US min work ex is 3 yrs.

ppl not even knowing what business is really like are being taught how to manage it.

but i dont understand why after working for 5 yrs in core, he returned to india to do his MBA, he could have done it in the US ???
