Even in this gloomy economy, a few companies are crouched, still hungry for growth and ready to spring. Spotting them isn’t easy. But one way to pick out the ones that are revving up and ready to tear away is to track hiring data at the country’s top 21 B-Schools and figure out which companies hired most aggressively. That’s exactly what ET’s team of reporters did over the past month. The war for talent at India’s top B-schools can tell many tales about the state of affairs at many of India’s biggest companies. Here are some indicators:
IBM, number one in ET’s ‘India’s Top Recruiters’ list last year, has fallen off the top ten this year.
For two years now, consulting firm BCG has hired more MBAs than rival McKinsey.
Cognizant topped the list for the first time this year. It has found a place among the top ten for three years on the trot.
TCS made it to the top ten and Infy dropped off, both for the first time in three years.
Amazon hired 25 graduates from the top three IIMs – Ahmedabad, Bangalore and Kolkata.
Goldman Sachs is the lone investment bank in the top 10; it made more offers to women than men.
Game developer Zynga, the toast of last year’s B-school placement season, is now laying-off 18% of its workforce. (Source: ET)
