Placements at IFIM

Placement Chairperson’s Message

Greetings!

I would like to describe our students in one word “ Brav”(German), an adjective used to commend children, encompassing qualities including being pleasant, earnest and well-behaved. They are equipped with knowledge, skill and attitude. Have aspirations to excel. They are groomed to be Ganbaru (Japanese) - to do one's best.

They are aware of Jaksaa (Finnish) or Orka (Swedish) - the importance of being energized with Kefi (Greek) - a spirit of joy, passion, enthusiasm & high spirits. They would follow processes. However, would be using Jugaad (Hindi) or Arrangiarsi (Italian) - the ability to "make do" or "get by", when the established processes are less matured; they will be Kombinować (Polish) - working out an unusual solution to a complicated problem, and acquiring coveted skills or qualities in the process. Displaying Að jenna (Icelandic) or Sitzfleish (German) - the ability or willingness to persevere through tasks that are hard or even just boring.

They possess Saper vivere (Italian) - the ability to handle people and situations with charm, diplomacy and verve. You will ultimately find our students as Majime (Japanese) - someone who is reliable, responsible and able to get things done without causing problems for others. This we state from our alumni’s legacy in corporate world in last two plus decades.

Chair - Placements, IFIM

"I would say IFIM is a treasure of talented candidates. We have recruited IFIM students for Byju’s GRE and GMAT marketing and sales departments. Being a company that is into innovation and creativity we found that IFIM students are quick learners and adapt to all challenges. I would definitely recommend IFIM students to other recruiters too."

Krishnakumar K. A.,

"With my recent interactions and recruitment activities I learned that IFIM is one of the best B Schools in the region. The focus of the institution to prepare the students to meet the industry expectation is commendable. The curricular and extracurricular activities scheduled in the institution would definitely help the students to improve the quality and meet the expected standards. My good wishes for the future batches."

Vidyaranya Kollipal,

"IFIM is doing a great job as far as readying the students for the industry is concerned. The interactions with industry experts (in the form of mentoring sessions, among others) is doing a lot of good I feel. This is very clearly demonstrated by the students during the Group Discussions and Personal Interviews. Other than that, conceptual clarity is an added bonus."

Nandini Bhattacharjee,

Companies are invited to the campus and to select students, either for the IIP or for Final Placements, or both, at a mutually convenient day/time. Once students get an offer for an Internship from an organisation, they cannot try for the same with other organisations, either through the Placement Cell or on their own. If they receive an offer for Final Placement, they cannot continue to be part of the placement process. Once they get an offer, a decision must be taken by the student and formally communicated to the Placement Cell, who will then inform the companies accordingly.

  • Introduction
  • Pre-Placement Talk
  • Expression of Interest Form (to be filled up by the student, after the PPT)
  • Written Test (if any), Group Discussion, Personal Interview
  • Final Offer

The Placement Cell coordinates the entire process on campus and provides all the facilities required by the companies for the pre-placement and recruitment procedure. IFIM ensures a friendly placement process and support. It gives the students an opportunity to select a career in their chosen area of interest and the recruiters a chance to choose the right candidate as per their requirements.

Corporate Mentoring

IFIM Business School is one of the first Business Schools in the country to ensure every student goes through the process of Corporate Mentoring. This includes various supportive stages like purposing, training and skilling. This ensures students, from the beginning of the program, have a vision of their desired career path and have an industry mentor to help them grow and understand the necessities to succeed in their chosen industry and specialization. Empowered students can enable business by aspiring to be successful professionals, future CEO’s or entrepreneurs. The Academic intervention will help them develop their subject knowledge but the Mentoring process will help them understand the Real world and its requirements while studying at the institute. The entire process begins with students attending the workshop on building a purpose map, which is converted into an ‘I will....’ statement in the Foundation term.

Individual Corporate Mentors from the industry have one-on-one sessions with the students and help them build their SOPs (Statement of Purpose). After understanding and guiding them in choosing their career options, the mentors help students identify the gap between their aspirations & the reality.



Benefits of Corporate Mentoring to students are –

  • Mentors align the student’s career path with their choice of specialization.
  • Assist in identifying weaknesses and strengths of the student vis-à-vis the career choice.
  • Mentors help in finalizing the student’s career path, specializations, choice of industry projects, readings and certifications.
  • All mentors have fifteen plus years of Corporate /Professional experience with a 360 degree exposure in cross functional activities during his/her tenure.

At the skilling stage, students can opt for Workshop/Certificate Courses run by professional trainers in the fields of:

  • Sales Training.
  • Negotiation Skills.
  • Accounting.
  • Analytics.
  • Banking.
  • Financial Trading.
  • Report Writing .

Mock GDPI - Addressing the challenges faced by educational institutes in terms of job - readiness for the management students, IFIM has embarked on this initiative of conducting mock round of GD & PIs. We collaborate with the corporate and make this a continuous process prior to the final placement season. These exercises help the students in preparing and scaling up their interview skill sets & strengthens our relationship with the corporate. Functional heads join us as panel members & students get an opportunity to be gauged and hand - picked by them for final placement opportunities.

Modus Operandi – The entire batch is divided into 2 groups, Finance specialization as one group & General Management as the second. The exercise is repeated every alternate week end for each group and 4 such rounds are conducted. Functional heads from list of newer & known brands are invited to conduct the group discussion & personal interview. We have partnered with AMCAT to conduct tests and brush up their aptitude skills. Every weekend, four industry experts anchor the sessions and give them valuable inputs and share their views on the corrective measures. After every GDPI, faculties devote time with the students in the corrective actions and prepare them to be industry ready.

In the training stage, students are made industry-ready and prepared for job interviews to face HR’s and recruiters through:

  • Resume building
  • Near real life Aptitude, GD and Personal Interviews
  • In-depth interviews by HR executives from the corporate sector
  • Feedback from these interviews is provided to make corrections

Industry Internship Program

Unlike other business schools, that follow the conventional 6- 8 weeks summer internship program, IFIM has a unique internship model which spans over 4.5 months.

The IIP is completely integrated into the curriculum of the program and carries around 20 credits. The students become eligible for the IIP only after successful completion of all other courses, amounting to 90 credits. Thus for the recruiting company these students have already completed all coursework that is expected from a graduating student. The entire 5th term is devoted to the IIP, after students complete 4 terms on campus.

INDUSTRY INTERNSHIP PROGRAM (IIP)

Unlike other business schools, that follow the conventional 6- 8 weeks summer internship program, IFIM has a unique internship model which spans over 4.5 months.

The IIP is completely integrated into the curriculum of the program and carries around 20 credits. The students become eligible for the IIP only after successful completion of all other courses, amounting to 90 credits. Thus for the recruiting company these students have already completed all coursework that is expected from a graduating student. The entire 5th term is devoted to the IIP, after students complete 4 terms on campus.

ADVANTAGES OF THE IIP

  • Provide a transitioning bridge between theory and practice for the students.
  • Enable a 'laboratory experience' for the students to experiment and 'learn by doing', in a real work environment.
  • Ensure greater access to the faculty who offer student mentorship & evaluation to make them industry-ready during the internship.
  • Create a longer connect between the faculty and the industry, for assessing the outcomes delivered during the program and to fine tune it to meet industry requirements.
  • Help forge strong relationships with the corporate for the institute.
  • Enhance the 'currency of knowledge' through faculty engagement with the corporate.

GAINS OF THE IIP

Since its inception, the IIP has benefited all 3 stakeholders- the PGDM interns, the companies and the institute.

Here are some of the gains from the program:

  • Most of the internships culminate with full time job offers. Owing to students’ primary choice of company and interested area,The final rate of conversion of IIP to final placements remains at about 46%. (This is because for many of the students, their first choice of company and area was not their IIP company).
  • 65 companies have partnered with IFIM so far, from diverse sectors. The list is growing in both size and stature.
  • The IIP has enabled seamless transition of students to industry-ready productive employees.
  • Students have given positive feedback on the benefits of IIP and their learning experience.
  • Contribution of the students has been acknowledged by the companies.
  • IIP companies have facilitated faculty in getting consulting projects and training programs. It has also helped faculty to develop case studies and research projects.
  • Some of the IIP partners have been ‘start-up companies’ that have been incubated in the IFIM Campus and have recruited the students.
  • The IIP initiative also won an award for ‘Industry-Institute Engagement’ at the Indian Management Conclave (IMC) 2013, organised by MBA Universe.
