The delivery of this has been mastered by our faculty over the last five years and the results are clearly visible now.”

Dr Atish Chattopadhyay, Director – IFIM Business School expressed, “When it comes to the campus placement, the business schools in India follow the ‘Mela Model’ where on a single day, large number of companies vie for a group of students and every company wants to demonstrate that they recruited on the ‘Day Zero’ on the campus, and every school wants to demonstrate that they placed most of the students on the ‘Day Zero’. We have taken the first step towards moving out of a ‘Mela Model’ to an ‘Engagement Model’ and the outcome of this year’s placements is a testimony to the success of the shift we have attempted to bring in.
