Firms of global strategy consulting, international investment banks, general management leadership programmes and investment management participated in the placement process of Indian Institute of Management-Ahmedabad's final-year flagship programme students on the first day on Sunday.
A statement from the Post-Graduate Programme in Management's placements committee said the Boston Consulting Group made the highest number of offers to students at 15. The firm was "closely followed by Accenture, McKinsey & Co. and Bain & Co," the committee said without revealing numbers.
Other firms include A T Kearney, Barclays, Citigroup, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Oliver Wyman. "Banks offered roles in their trading and investment banking divisions, with Goldman Sachs additionally hiring for roles in quantitative strategy," the committee said.
A spokesperson said at the time of going to press that the process was still on and a final figure regarding number of offers made was unavailable.
The committee added that "Thomson Reuters launched its Management Associates Programme (MAP) for the first time in India by recruiting exclusively from IIM-A this year."
