COVID & Career Pause? Not in GIBS!

Unarguably, Covid-19 has also led to unprecedented situations in the
Higher Education Sector. This unfortunate outbreak has imperiled
admission, placements, and job prospects in the management world.
Many business schools started online lectures in the lockdown period to
prevent the loss of students’ academic year.

Although Unlock 1.0 began on 8 th June 2020 where various businesses
have started their operations, there was no good news for the education
sector. According to the Indian Government’s orders, many business
schools shut down their operations to follow preventive measures.

There’s good news, though, which is more of a golden opportunity for
BBA and PGDM aspirants!

Lately, AICTE (All India Council For Technical Education) has released a
revised academic calendar for the 2020-21 batch. 
Business schools have to follow important guidelines for the admission
process, examinations process, and fee refund. 
Now business institutes can conduct MBA, BBA, PGDM, and similar
admission/examinations based on merit. 

But Let’s Face The Fact.

The outbreak of Covid-19 has impacted the job opportunities,
placement, and internships of 2020. 
When this is an India-wide situation, we at GIBS managed to stay afloat!

With sheer determination, making the most out of the situation and
willing to stretch ourselves beyond limits.
At GIBS, now Covid-19 will not affect the future goals of management
aspirants. Here, we are encouraging students to come out of the Covid-
19 outbreak and grab the upcoming opportunities. 
   
Make The Best Use Of Post Covid-19 And Start Your
Management Career At GIBS Immediately!

MBA graduates are not less than busy machines, which are often
thinking about new ideas and planning. You might be indulged in various
house activities in the Covid-19 pandemic. 
But then it’s also the time to enroll in BBA and PGDM sessions and bag
the upcoming internships by top-notch multinational firms.
Let’s look at the broader picture of this scenario. 
Like other business schools, GIBS has also started the admission process
and is likely to conduct examinations as per government rules. 

But You Know What? 
In 2020-21, the admission rate will decline, and there are fewer
possibilities of students opting for management courses. And here’s the
big catch for you that you MUST NOT let go.

GIBS has very good corporate relationships with multinational firms, and
soon there will be a plethora of growth opportunities for 2020-21
batch.

Agreed, enrolling in GIBS or other business schools depends on various
factors. Above all, the economic turndown of the whole nation has
adversely affected the education sector. 
But, MBA graduates are game-changers, and COVID-19 has encouraged
many budding entrepreneurs.

Job Prospects/Placements In Post Covid-19?

Corresponding to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the worldwide
economy will shrink by 3%, which results in fewer placements and
growth opportunities. Currently, the worst affected sectors are
pharmaceutical companies, hospitality, and travel. 
The beginning of 2021 is expected to see a surge in MBA recruitments
because businesses without leaders are like a sea without fishes. And
GIBS is the maker and transformer of leaders that are ruling
multinational firms.

In our post Covid-19 internships, Student-in Residence programs will be
entertained. So grab this opportunity right away! 

Growth Opportunities At GIBS In Post Covid-19
Like other business schools, GIBS also conducts campus placements in
April or December. Many business schools have eliminated the
recruitment process. The same is the current scenario of top-notch
business schools.

● Agreed, the placement process will be slowing down at GIBS too, but
there are fewer possibilities for students not getting placed.

● Our economy is seeing its all-time low at 1.9%. Remember, whatever
touches its bottom has to come up by universal law. The final
placements of the 2020-21 batch will be quite fruitful because the
economy will undoubtedly bounce back. Hopefully, most of the
halted candidates will be placed in the upcoming December or
February sessions.

● Enrolling in GIBS in the upcoming batches means lucrative pay and
less competition with Tier-3 business schools. As the tourism sector
is also improving, they’ll take part in the placement sessions.

● WFH (Work From Home) Policy will be in trend even in 2021, but you
don’t have to struggle with gig work or freelancing. GIBS will be
tentatively placing around 80% of graduates in the upcoming year.
The Genuine Placement Records Of GIBS
GIBS placements’ success rate is far better than other competitors.
Below are some actual figures to consider while enrolling in this B-
school.

● Between 2015 to 2018, an average of 150-160 companies hired GIBS
graduates for final year placement. When it comes to internships of
this year, 58 companies have already recruited the freshers.

● Top-notch companies like ICICI Bank, Bosch, Berger Paints, Hindustan
Unilever Limited, Tommy Hilfiger, Deloitte, and Flipkart were always
part of the final year placements.

● When it comes to the highest CTC offered to GIBS graduates, Byjus
and Doc With You are the top competitors offering 10.00 LPA and
9.00 LPA. Companies like TCS, Deloitte, XL Dynamics and Naukri.com
averagely offer 5.50 LPA to 8.00 LPA to graduates.
