FMCG back on top of B-school graduates' wishlist

A TOI-commissioned study conducted by Nielsen, a market research firm which tracked changing trends over the past five years among business school graduates has a few interesting revelations. According to the study a traditional job at an FMCG firm is now, once again, the ultimate destination for an Indian business school graduate. In the hierarchy of preferences, a stint at a management consultancy, the top choice four years ago for graduates, stands strong at number two as the dream job for today's B-schoolers. Jobs in the fledgling e-commerce space have sprung up as a hot new choice, indicating the risk appetite among the young management brigade. However, a shaky financial environment globally over the past five years has led to the sheen coming off the once coveted investment banking job.
