The duo said around 300 PGP students were placed in various national and international companies. However, world's biggest financial institute Lehman Bros absence was clearly visible this year on the campus. Last year, Lehman Bros had recruited eight PGP students. However, the first day of placements saw major global banks and consulting firms on campus, including Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, The Royal Bank of Scotland, Rothschild and UBS among others.
On the first day, 115 students were placed in a job of their choice and had opted out of the placement process. This time even Planning Commission came on campus for picking up PGPs, they said. The summer internship recruitment process saw over 90 international offers made to the PGPs. However, in many cases, these offers were turned down in favour of Indian offers, they added.
