The business school is honored to be the recipient of ‘India’s No.1 Brand Awards 2017’ which was granted for being the most trusted education brand in India (business school category 2017-18). The fundamental objective of Karunya School of Management is to foster societal values and business excellence. We wish to raise academically excellent management graduates with knowledge, skills and attitude to arise and shine in the corporate world. The Placement Cell creates a platform where the graduates can exhibit their talents which various brands seek to explore and utilize. We provide complete placement backing to our students.
The Placement Cell is headed by Dr. Clement Sudhahar (Head) and is led by the placement officer Mr. Suresh Kumar along with the consultive board that consists of professors and final year students from various specializations.
Originally the companies are encouraged to take part in the Career Empowerment Drive which includes experts from the company are invited for conducting guest lectures, workshops etc. Then in the final year, students are intimated about the placement opportunities provided by these companies and a vast number of students register for the interview.
The interview process usually starts with a pre-placement session including a Power Point presentation where the company educates the students about the job description for the offered profiles. Those interested then go forth with the interview process that generally consists of a written exam followed by group discussions and personal interview.
In recent times, the job scenario is facing the onslaught of leading edge competition from all fields; and placement in a good company has become a baffling task. Thus Karunya School of Management has grown to the opportunity and has excellently aided in arranging opportunities and hiring of its outgoing students.
The Placement Cell has been able to successfully create a large database of potential recruiting companies along with their contact details. This has absolutely increased the awareness of Karunya School of Management as a potential institution for job hiring options.
The Placement Cell consists of three tiers- The Core team that contains the Head of Placement representing the various departments (Marketing, Human Resources, Finance and Operations & Logistics) along with the Functional Team that includes Five Members for each department supporting the Core Members and the Support Team that further aids with arranging and organizing the operations during placement day.
The Core Team consists of two representatives for each specialization. They ensure that any placement opportunity recognized by the placement officer is intimated to the students of their department. They also handle grievances regarding placement from the students to the Placement Board.
The Functional Team members assist the Core Team by ensuring that all the deadlines for registration of students for the provided jobs are met. They also take care of finding new companies and intimating the same to the core team who then contact the brand officially.
The Support Team consists of students from the first year who can help during the placement with hospitality affairs for the team coming from the company for placement. They ensure smooth functioning of the entire event.
Together, these teams work like a well oiled machine and the end goal is a pleasant experience for not only the companies recruiting but also the students appearing for the same.
