January 30, 2024, marked the conclusion of the summer internship placement at the Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIM Bangalore) for the PGP batch of 602 eligible students MBA for and MBA (BA).

"The rolling summer placements saw many first-time recruiters offering roles in strategy, marketing, products, finance, analytics, and investments – some of the projects offered were more interesting and challenging than those offered during the summer placement week," stated Prof. Ganesh N Prabhu, chairperson of Career Development Services and faculty member of IIM Bangalore's Strategy area.

Offers From Various Industry


The highest number of offers came from consulting organisations (158), with Accenture Strategy making a record of 45 offers. However, the percentage of students interning in consulting decreased somewhat this year due to the high volume of offers (130) from highly sought-after finance, banking, and investing firms. 69 offers were made by retail and FMCG companies hoping to fill marketing positions. Manufacturing companies made 55 offers, most related to supply chains and new product introduction. The digital marketing and card industries accounted for 45 bids from e-commerce and payment companies. 43 offers were made by IT-related companies in fields including product management and IT consultancy.

Among the student population, consulting attracted the largest percentage with 158 offers from 20 major businesses, making it the obvious winner. These included well-known behemoths like Boston Consulting Group (17), Bain & Company (17), and Accenture Strategy (45 offers), as well as up-and-coming firms like EY Parthenon (15) and TCS Strategic Leadership Programme (11). This pattern emphasises how important it is to have strategic thinking and problem-solving abilities in the fast-paced corporate environment of today.


Though consultancy took the front stage, there was also a great deal of engagement from other businesses. There were 130 placements in the financial and banking industry, with well-known companies including PwC (12), Goldman Sachs (7), and JP Morgan Chase (7) at the top of the list. Furthermore, a sizable number of students looking for a variety of professional pathways were drawn to the FMCG/Retail (69 offers), Manufacturing/Construction/Energy (55 offers), and IT/Software/Security (43 offers) categories.
