Trickles of placement information from IIMA about PGPX placements are catching every one’s attention. I have received numerous calls since morning from friends and well-wishers, either wanting to understand the full story behind placements and some inside information. This is after some media reports claiming a PGPX student getting a US$ 300K job offer. I wish I had the inside information.
PGPX follows rolling placements and hence it would be juvenile to expect full blooded stats on placements before the roll stops. I am not expecting answers to queries about placements that we have and slicing and dicing of information before we go to AHD. There is a view point within some of us in our class that IIMA should publish (once the placements are over) data on placements with median, jobs classified on Finance/Consult/Industry type, geo based classification etc just as foreign B schools (INSEAD / IMD / LBS) do. Because averages and highest salary figures do not tell the full story!
