  • GITAM Institute of Management (GIM) enjoys a healthy relationship with its recruiting partners through its strong emphasis on industry-academic interface. This gives us at GIM, an edge over our competitor in regard to attract quality recruiters hiring our students year after year. A 100% placement record has been achieved for the batch of 2014-16. Approximately 40 recruiters visited the campus recruiting the students of GIM. In terms of number of offers, Tata Teleservices Ltd was the top recruiter across all clusters having picked 8 students from the campus, followed by TCS hiring 7 students. Companies from all sectors hired candidates for a wide range of functions, prominent among them being Financial Services, IT, FMCG, Retail, Pharma, etc. This year saw a large number of students entering into the financial services sector with 40% of the placements being in this area. Some of the prominent recruiters in this sector are HDFC Asset Management Fund, Deloitte, Air Worldwide (Verisk Analytics Business), Invesco, L&T Financial Services, ICICI Securities. A large number of students took up roles in Sales & Marketing in various companies such as ITC, Wrigley India Ltd, Tata Teleservices, Telenor, InforEdge-Naukri.com, etc. Majority of the students have been recruited in the salary bracket ranging between Rs. 400,000 and Rs. 500,000, with the highest package offered being Rs. 750,000 and the average CTC being Rs. 500,000 It is interesting to note that many of the recruiters have made it a point to re-visit the campus every year for their recruitment needs, which is a sign of their satisfaction with GIM students. GIM encourages students to take up entrepreneurship and this year, thirteen students opted to start their own ventures, or be part of their family business. First time recruiters who visited the campus this year include TCS, Cisil, Hyderabad Industries Ltd., L&T Financial Services, Universal Sompo General Insurance Company.

Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] (Computer Science and Engineering), batch of 2017 5/10
ACADEMICS & FACULTY: Not very happy with the academic syllabus. It's like they're just trying to fill in the four year course with random useless topics.I'm sure I can cover the useful parts within an year outside. Just hanging on for the degree.
FEES AND SCHOLARSHIP: They do provide schorlarships, but lay about a hundred conditions in order to avail of it. About 3% of the students are eligible for scholarships. Pretty sure only about 0.1% actually avail of it, thanks to the pre-requisites.

Bachelor of Technology [B.Tech] (Electronics & Communication Engineering), batch of 2016 3/10

FEES AND SCHOLARSHIP: Scholarship is not availed by more than 3% of students and generally seems impractical. However, bank loans are available from the Union Bank of India branch p...
