I wrote here about the hyperbolic headlines accompanying the IIM placement season and the fact that some graduates are opting to stay back in India. The Hindu article carefully avoided hard numbers. Well, let's look at the actual numbers.
Dollars, pounds and francs don't hold any glamour for them anymore. Big buck offers notwithstanding, they would rather stay put in apna India, thank you very much. This year, about 20-odd students from the three IIMs – Ahmedabad, Bangalore and Calcutta have rejected plum international postings.
20 students out of approximately 600. That is a full 3%.
