Placement update for MBA 2015-17

The placement process for MBA and BBA students is currently underway. Due to the delayed examination schedule, this year, the process started in mid Jan. As of 15 March, we have placed around 40% of the eligible students in relevant positions with reputed firms.

Due to the sudden demonetization, there has been an overall slowdown in the economy across industry sectors. The real estate and construction sectors specifically, that largely operate on cash were hit in the short term, as a result of which, organisations in this sector have also been impacted. This has also reflected in the hiring by employers which is happening at a slower pace. Also, we are meticulously matching student skillset with employer requirements and job roles, to ensure each of our student gets a strong head start in their career.

Indian built environment at a turning point – towards a more professional industry

Indian built environment is going through a fundamental shift where the sector is finding new ways of doing business based on credibility and transparency. This big change is driven by the government in the form of Real Estate Regulation Act, GST, Benami Transactions Act amongst many other initiatives. The sector is moving towards more and more professionalism day by day and qualified youngsters will find a better pitch to begin their innings.

As international property consultants are expanding their foothold in the market and foreign direct investments are increasing – new professions are opening up the relatively conservative Indian market. In the long term, India will compete with developed economies in terms of professionalism and transparency in this sector, while currently the sector is going through turbulence and dynamic disruption. Organizations that are able to adapt and embrace changes will perform better while others will struggle and perish.

In such times, it becomes increasingly crucial for us to gate keep and bring only the credible and reliable companies on-board for placements. In near future when war for talent will gain motion, our intention is to pass on our best talent in the right hands.

Leading companies continue recruitment

This year, leading construction and contracting firms like Arcadis, SPCL, Nabih Elias Azzam & Partners, Turner & Townsend, Eversendai Engineering LLC, Veadhik Cost Consultant along with financial & consulting firms like Blackstone, Edelweiss, CBRE, JLL, Cushman & Wakefield, Knight Frank, PropEquity and real estate development firms like TATA Housing, Prestige have visited the campus & hired some our bright students from MBA REUI, MBA CPM and MBA CEQS programs.

It is our endeavour to provide job interview opportunities to all eligible students however the selection of the student is dependent on their interview performance and acceptability by the prospective employer.
