Only 18% students from tier 2 business schools land job offers

Campus hirings across second rung business schools in the country have been severely hit this year due to economic slowdown, with only 18 per cent students landing job offers after completing the two-year MBA course, says an Assocham survey. The salary packages offered at these B-schools have also been curtailed by 40-45 per cent as compared to last year, according to the survey of the industry body. "Economic slowdown, stalling of new projects and investors' apathy towards key sectors like infrastructure, hotels, financial services, realty and retail have led to drying of job opportunities for several students from the b-category business schools, with only 18% students landing job offers," it said.
