Kolkata,  The country's premier management school IIM-Calcutta has received 34 percent more pre-placement offers for final placements for its 2014 batch of students till the first week of August.

An IIM-C release Thursday said 78 students on campus have received such offers.

The count stands at 78 offers - 58 PPOs (pre-placement offers) and 20 PPIs (pre-placement interviews). The total offers in the corresponding period last year was 58, denoting a growth of 34 percent this year.

"With 454 students in the batch of 2013-15, the 78 figure by August start is a healthy indication of the excellent skill sets being developed at IIM-Calcutta," the relase said.

The management consulting firms yet again led the way in terms of the total number of offers made to the candidates.

The top four consulting firms -- Mckinsey, Boston Consulting Group, Bain and A T Kearney -- in total gave 24 offers out of 31 candidates.

McKinsey & Co and The Boston Consulting Group gave the maximum number of offers in this domain with eight and seven respectively.

The General Management domain also saw pre-placement offers from highly coveted firms such as Tata Administrative Services (TAS) and the Aditya Birla Group.

Philips, Pepsi, Bosch, Nestle, Shell, Vodafone and iNautix were among other companies which gave offers. Alshaya, a top retail franchise operator in the Middle East, gave eight PPOs.

"Companies seem to be realising the importance of the summer internship programme and are hiring more through the PPO route," said IIM-C placement chairperson Rajiv Kumar.

"Last year, students at IIM-Calcutta received 112 PPOs in total by the end of the year and we are expecting an increase in this number," he added.
