SRMS IBS has helped shape some extraordinary people, and they’re not even close to being done. What SRMS IBS means by stunning Placement record?

If the placement record of a management institute is a marker of its stature then SRMS International Business School, Lucknow towers over its contemporaries. A SRMS Manager never goes anywhere without one stranger calling out at them. From climbing the stairs of the Bank of Mellon NY Corporate building ’to IT hubs of Bangalore and Hyderabad, SRMS-ians are always running into fellow SRMS-ians, everywhere, and all around the globe. Why?

Within a short span of time the B School has produced graduates that have been lapped up by the big names in the industry and are now located in various parts of the globe. Mr. Siddiq Aazam, Head Placements, SRMS Lucknow has been with the institute since its inception and we sat over a coffee conversation with him. We asked him a simple question- “what makes students from the institute appealing prospects to the corporate companies?” He cherry picked few points to answer it with enthusiasm.

We keep RoI for the student in mind ever since s/he steps in the B-school

SRMS International Business School’s sterling track record includes 100% placements every year. Mr. Azam highlights some of the other remarkable stats of the placement record as he says, “While the average salary package for students is around Rs. 4.2 lakhs per annum, the highest package is in the range of Rs. 7 lakhs. That’s excellent return on investment even if you consider the average package, because that’s our course fee. It means students can recover their fees within a year of working in the corporate world.”

We have the network

But it’s not just about the monetary gains as the institute and its placement cell in particular works tirelessly to offer students job profiles and opportunities based on their interests. According to Mr. Azam, “Some of the major recruiters at the institute include JK Tyres, Berger Paints, Asian Paints, Pepsi, Marico, Bank of Mellon New York and IndusInd Bank. There are at least 35 new recruiters that come to the campus every year. We can proudly say that we are able to meet with the aspirations of our students.”

Another important and interesting aspect of the placement process at SRMS IBS is the fact that 90% of recruiters come back to hire students. It shows that institute alum in these companies perform as expected. Speaking of this endorsement of the institute by recruiters Mr. Azam says, “That makes us proud because we work hard to make students fit for the corporate world. They study an industry oriented curriculum while they are also empowered with different life skills that are crucial for successful corporate life.”

“Throughout the course we facilitate industry interactions for students through different platforms like guest lectures, industrial visits, management development programs, seminars and conferences. Not only do they understand how the industry functions but many of the recruiters already know what our students are capable of,” he ends revealing the secrets to the successful placement record of the B School.
