IIM Ahmedabad is going to announce the placement results of its students for the flagship programme on 7 September 2011
The institute ended the cohort-based placement for students of Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP) on March 3. But there were few students without any confirmed placement in the end. Due to this, the institute went on to seek suitable jobs for the remaining students in a different mode of placement called 'rolling placement'.
As per the institute's recently framed 'Placement Reporting Standard,' placement results are required to be announced three months after graduation. However, IIM-A delayed the announcement by several months as its annual convocation was held on March 26.
While sources at the institute alleged that the delay was because one of the students of the 2009-11 batch had not been placed till recently. Placement authorities at the institute blamed the delay on the auditing process of the placement results. The audit was carried out at CRISIL, a global analytical company which provides ratings, research, and risk and policy advisory services.
Along with the placement results, IIM-A will also announce the names of institutes which have agreed to comply with the Placement Reporting Standards that it has sketched.
