*School to organise more trainings and workshops

The biggest placements in the history of MBA department have taken place this year. Reserve Bank of India (RBI) recruited three students from MBA final semester as middle managers (grade B officer) with a salary of `10.5 lakh per annum.

Visakh V. V, Prachi Gangradre and B.Savitha from MBA finance major achieved this after rounds of group discussions, written exams and an interview. Around 30 students had attended the interview from School of Management Studies.

“We are thankful to the department and all faculties for the various trainings and seminars that helped us perform better,” Visakh.V.V said. Regular reading of newspapers like Business Line and The Hindu helped us get through the group discussion easily, he added.

Apart from RBI, various leading Multi National Companies also recruit students from MBA. Every year the School records 100% placement. Some of the students get multiple placement offers. The prominent banks like Andhra Bank, Axis Bank, SBH, and HSBC are regular recruiters from the School apart from others like PWC, E&Y, Virtusa, Deloitte, Sierra Atlantic, TOI, TIME, Thomson Reuters, Reliance and Colgate Palmolive.

“Ongoing expansion in the banking sector after the recession provided much more opportunities this time. Placement cell of the school is planning to invite more MNC’s this time,” said Dr. Chetan Srivastava, Reader and Placement coordinator of the School of Management Studies.

Based on the feedback of the recruiters, it is learnt that there is a scope for improvement in the communication & soft skills of the students and they need to make serious efforts to improve them, he added.

With the help of leading organisations, the School plans to organise some training programmes and workshops for the benefit of students.
