Quality talent pool

Prof Arun Kaushik, Chairperson, Placement, IIM Amritsar, said, “Like the previous year, we had 100 students this year, which is a huge number. This resulted in the addition of new and quality recruiters to our existing placement contacts. We have consistently achieved 100 per cent placement because of the trust we have gained and maintained over the last three years in terms of providing quality students to our recruiters.”

The larger batch size this year has provided students with a more diverse and inclusive learning atmosphere in the classroom. While attracting quality recruiters, this has also increased the alumni presence in industry.
