With the placement season for B Institutes in the country well underway, SCMS-Cochin School of Business has shown remarkable results so far. Being one of the leading management institutes in South India, SCMS-Cochin School of Business has always prided itself on the achievements of its students during the placement season. And, early signs indicate that the institute will be having a lot to cheer about when the placement season concludes for the Batch of 2014.

So far, 110 students from the batch strength of 169 have been recruited with some of the biggest names in the world of business. One of the major highlights of the placement season this year for the Institute has been the fact that 25 new companies have made their presence felt on campus. 50 is the total number of companies that have taken part in the placement program this year thus far and there are few more in the pipeline. This is a heartening sign for the institute.

Some of the top notch companies that have visited for recruitment in the institute so far for 2014 include Deloitte, Madura Fashion & Lifestyle, B Braun Medical India Pvt. Ltd., Sutherland Global Services, CMA CGM Shared Services India Pvt. Ltd., TCS e Serve, Colgate Palmolive, HCL Infosystems, Whirlpool of India Ltd., KPMG, ITC Ltd., Tata Teleservices, Axis Bank, South Indian Bank, LG Electronics, Haritha Tech Serve (TVS Group), Hawkins, Vodafone, HIDESIGN, Magma Fincorp and Allianz Cornhill, to name a few.

Another aspect that has shone through this season is the fact that Marketing & Finance is the area where the Institute has seen some of the strongest placements. With Marketing & Finance being the forte of the management program at SCMS Cochin, this interesting detail of the placement season seems fitting. The average salary stands at respectable Rs. 4.50 lakhs p.a. These figures are more commendable given the state of the economy and the general weariness in the industry when it comes to hiring.

The credit goes to the institute for its implementation of intelligent strategies that are meant to offer students the best opportunities during the placement season. For starters, the placement season at SCMS Cochin begins mid-November when students have gained valuable experience through internships and involving the students in recruitment relevant activities thus inducing sprightliness in them. The institute also has corporate relations officers stationed across different cities in the country. They work consistently with human resources teams of various companies to ensure that they have everything in place for on-campus recruitment.

The placement process at SCMS-Cochin School of Business is also unique in a way because the information regarding desired job profiles and salary packages from recruiters is instantly shared with students. Aspiring candidates can thus make their choice and have an opportunity to focus their energies on roles with companies that they are genuinely keen on working with.

Clearly, SCMS Cochin takes the placement process very seriously and looks at it as an extension of its pedagogy. And the results are showing this season, which definitely seems to be on the right track.
