Hyderabad: IT services company Cognizant became the biggest campus recruiter in Indian School of Business (ISB), Hyderabad by recruiting 35 students from the institute. “These graduates will join the company in the second quarter of this year,” says a company spokesperson.

Since 2003, the company has been recruiting students from the institute and has a long-standing relationship with it. “Presently, we have over 1,000 B-school graduates in the company of which about 50 are from ISB.”

The students who are selected by the company will be joining Cognizant centres in Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune, Kolkota, Mumbai and London. They will be assigned the roles of business analysts, consultants, and domain experts. They will also lead other corporate development initiatives such as new geography expansion, mergers and acquisition, strategic pursuits and industry research.

The company employs about 43,000 people and has also plans to raise the ratio of MBAs in its ranks. The company employs one management graduate for every 30 software professionals presently.

“We have gained immensely from B-school recruiting. The students’ domain expertise has helped us successfully marry domain knowledge with technological excellence. They have also played an active role in proactive solutions to business pressure points of customers, rather than more technology solutions,” says R Chandrasekaran, President and Managing Director of Cognizant. “These graduates have also helped the company to acquire new customers,” he added.
