“With this year’s placements, IIM Lucknow
has reinforced its presence among the top B-schools, and proven to be a preferred destination for organisations which select limited B-schools to recruit,” said Prof Rajesh Aithal, chairman of IIM-L students’ affairs and placement wing.
Strategy/consulting profiles accounted for the maximum 32 per cent of job offers, followed by operations/IT at 24 per cent, finance 19 per cent, general management 13 per cent and sales/marketing 12 per cent. USA, Dubai, Africa, Qatar and Africa were among the international job locations offered to students.
