In total, 44 offers were made in the banking, financial services and insurance sectors, 12 in consulting, six in fast moving consumer goods, eight in information technology, five in media/entertainment, two in engineering technology and 17 in other areas.

This business school prides itself on providing employers with graduates who have relevant and cutting-edge skills. To continue to stay ahead of the competition, SCMS maintains close ties with the community, business organisations and alumni."

He added that the SCMS placement cell is manned by a team of experts and assisted by placement officers located in major cities in India, with influence in leading corporations.

But the SCMS placement process is active in more than just helping graduates find permanent positions. Last year, 35 students sought summer internships through the institute and 17 were placed in marketing and sales, eight in finance, six in human resources and four in operations/supply chain. They were placed with such prominent corporations as Aircel, BhartiAirtel, ITC Ltd., Met Life Insurance Pvt. Ltd., Tulip Telecom, Moserbaer India Pvt. Ltd. and TTK Health Care TPA Pvt.
