The placement season for management students of 2016 Batch at VJIM, Hyderabad has begun on a rousing note. With 80% of students already placed at some of the top organizations in the country, things are on the right track for the institute, which has a consistent placement record over the years.

The leading name in the field had recruited Mr. Surya Deepak, a student of the institute in 2014, and was left impressed by his performance. It has encouraged the recruiter to continue its association with the institute, as mentioned in its letter.
The list of satisfied recruiters is endless and they are making their presence felt during the current placement season as well. Almost three-fourths of the students have already been placed and the institute expects to close placements by 15 March, 2016. The highest CTC received by a student so far is INR 5,45,000.

Hiring for marketing professionals is across industries with top names like Future Group, Decathlon, Kent RO, Asian Paints, Deloitte, Naukri etc. IT, BFSI and Retail industries on the other hand are the front runners in terms of head count.”
