Kolkata: Despite a slowdown in the financial sector, the Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta (IIM-C) continued to draw attractive offers from major international financial hubs during placements this year.

Of the offers, finance constituted the largest chunk at 28.53 per cent, according to an IIM-C placement report.

Consulting companies also contributed to a significant portion of the pie with 26.80 per cent, closely followed by sales and marketing at 22.48 per cent and general management at 8.93 per cent.

The premier institute said Infosys offered five international positions in the US and London offices of its global sales team and Microsoft offered nine positions.

It said despite the slowdown in the finance sector, IIM-C maintained its position as the "finance campus" of the country.

Students had already received PPOs (pre-placement offers) from firms like UBS, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, Barclays Capital, Royal Bank of Scotland, HSBC Global Markets, Rothschild, Credit Suisse, and Nomura among others, the report said.
