New recruiters

This year the average salaries were up by over 10 per cent across the top 25 per cent, 50 per cent and overall, with the highest salary offered to be ₹18 lakh per annum. 

“With the pandemic accelerating the shift to digital transformation, IFMR GSB’s focus on embedding data-science across all subjects attracted a large canvas of new recruiters to the campus,” said Prof Lakshmi Kumar, Dean of IFMR GSB at Krea University.  

“While the average salaries have grown across bands, it’s heartening to note that students are pivoting more to exciting roles that provide them long-term career growth than merely be fixated on compensation and benefits,” added Kumar.
