As per reports 90% of the batch was placed within three days of the ‘Placement Week in Nov 2022’ and the rest of the students were placed in a rolling recruitment process, which was completed on 20th Jan, 2023.

The Executive Post Graduate Programme in Management is a one-year full time residential programme for experienced professionals who come from diverse sectors. A transformative programme, it prepares participants for middle and senior management roles.
Of the 75 students in the batch, 70 students opted for placements. Two are on a sabbatical, one opted out of placements and two started their own ventures. One student from last year’s batch, who had taken a placement holiday, was also placed along with the current batch.
Professor Debolina Dutta, Chairperson, Career Development Services, IIM Bangalore, said: “The acumen of our EPGP cohort this year was well appreciated by all the recruiters who evaluated them. This manifested in a significant increase in the number of top firms visiting for the placement process and the average compensation they offered to our students. I am sure our students will continue to do us proud and excel in their chosen careers.”
Chandan Salla, Placement Representative from the EPGP Class of 2022-23, said: “In spite of the fear about the economic slowdown and global recession, we had a fruitful placement season this year, with record statistics in average and median compensation. We have attracted the highest-ever new recruiters this year with our continuous industry engagement activities throughout the year. The interest shown by the recruiters is a testimony to the EPGP brand. With 5+ years of industry experience, the students are clear on the roles to target and that helped to find companies which fit the cohort’s experience and expectations. The diverse cohort, case-based pedagogy, and abundant networking opportunities, through international immersion and industry connect sessions, enrich the experience of learning at EPGP.”
Ganapathy Lakshman Sharma, Senior Manager, Career Development Services, IIM Bangalore, reportedly said: “It was a great experience to connect this highly motivated and enthusiastic batch to corporate firms. In today’s volatile and competitive environment, companies increasingly need skilled executives with vision. The EPGP at IIM Bangalore provides industry with forward-thinking managers who create value for the organisation as well as society.” Source
