The year 2013 has been a difficult year for placements with top B-schools including the IIMs reporting difficulties in terms of placements due to a slowdown in the economy.

    Multiple Sectors and Job Profiles – An Outcome of Vanguard’s IIM Alumni Mentor Network The core philosophy of Vanguard is to offer our students, the widest range of Industry Sector and Job profile choices. Vanguard’s strong and extensive network of Mentors with IIM/Top Bschool backgrounds helped ensure that some of the big names in a variety of sectors took part in the placement process. It was the result of the same network that many IIM Alumni founded/run corporations like Photon Infotech, Latent View, YLG, Four Fountains Spa, V2Solutions, FACE, Redwood Associates visited the campus for placements. Most of these firms have otherwise, historically only visited the Tier 1 Bschools in India.

    For the 35 students of Class of 2013, a total 26 companies representing as many as 16 sectors participated in the process .Such a huge range in terms of sectors is unheard for the size of this batch – another clear indicator of VBS’s Corporate connect and will to offer choices

    A noteworthy highlight of the entire process was the inclusion of Everstone Capital, from the extremely coveted sector of Private Equity in our process, confirming that even as a new Business School our fundamentals and reach match those of the best(Top 20) in the country.

    A total of 40 offers were made which meant that a few companies had to go back empty handed, highlighting the ability of VBS, Bangalore to place greater number of students over the coming years.
