Kolkata: Globsyn Business School (GBS), based in Kolkata, has introduced its placement season for academic year 2016-17 with 15% rise in salary offers compared to last year. Johnson & Johnson, Godrej & Boyce, Axis Bank, PwC, Naukri.com, Kotak Mahindra, Berger Paints, ITC, Asian Paints, TATA Teleservices and HDFC Bank are among the prominent companies that have visited the campus, who had also visited last year, to hire students.
GBS informed in a press statement that Mondelez India (Cadbury), Idea Cellular, Marico Industries, Nestle India, and Bandhan Bank have participated for the first time in the campus recruitment. These national and multinational companies have already offered joining letters to over 60% of the final year graduates.
The rise in salary package and the inclusion of new companies in campus-hiring has been possible due to the relentless efforts of the B-School’s dedicated Corporate Relationship Program (CRP) team. In addition to placement services, the Corporate Relationship Program of GBS works on several industry-academia integrated initiatives for students in partnership with big companies such as PwC, TATA Teleservices, Reliance Retail and Vodafone to name a few. The future managers also get to learn the nuances of the respective industries and get opportunities to interact with industry stalwarts as part of the Corporate Connect programs.
Kapil Mahajan, Deputy General Manager, Human Resource, Tata Teleservices, said, “We are more than satisfied with the students of two batches in 2014 and 2015 as they have brought a lot of energy into our organization. Their contribution in terms of bringing radical changes in the thought process is very remarkable. We have been able to absorb these in a seamless manner. The kind of innovation they have brought in the mobility business is incredible. Having worked closely with the erstwhile batches, I am very happy to be back in the midst of the students again.”
Rahul Dasgupta, Joint Managing Director, Globsyn Group said, “Over the years, we are seeing our students perform better and better; and it is heartening to see the industry respond to our students positively, with a growth of 15% to 20% in salaries year-on-year. This year we plan to close our placement cycle earlier than expected.”
