IIM (K) has succeeded beyond expectations by getting hundred percent placements for its students in times when the economy is slowing down and fears of recession have seized every professional sector. As a part of its summer placement initiative, the Institute was flooded with lucrative offers from banks and financial institutions including the likes of Citibank, ICICI, Standard Chartered, American Express, JP Morgan and Edelweiss Capital. These placements come as a huge relief as everyone was expecting hiring to nosedive with the bleak international and national economic circumstances. In fact, the number of firms that visited IIM Kozhikode went up to 102 as compared to 66 from last year! Some students even got international offers from global commercial centres like Hong Kong, Singapore and Dubai.
