DU has seen tremendous growth in placements this year, with LSR, SRCC, and St. Stephen’s coming out at the top.
The Placement drives in most University of Delhi Colleges for undergraduate students passing out in 2019 are slowly coming to an end. Students from Lady Shri Ram College for Women (LSR), St. Stephen’s College and Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) are usually the top performers, with respect to packages offered. B.A. Economics (Hons), B.Com. (Hons) and B.A. Statistics (Hons) continue to be the most sought after degrees by companies. Highest offers have increased, and so have the average salaries offered.
This year, the highest package was provided to a student of B.A. Economics (Hons) from LSR. The student received an offer of Rs. 38 Lakh per annum, which is a Rs. 1 lakh per annum increase from last year’s highest package offered, which was Rs. 37 Lakh per annum.
A B.A. Economics (Hons) student from St. Stephen’s, Nitish Korada bagged a packge of Rs. 31 Lakh per annum, from consultation firm Ernst and Young-Parthenon. St Stephen’s College has seen an increase of 12 Lakh per annum, from the highest salary being 19 Lakh per annum last year. At SRCC, a B.Com. (Hons) student has been offered a package of Rs 31 Lakh per annnum from EY-Parthenon. At Hindu College, the highest offer witnessed an increase from Rs 29 lakh last year to Rs 31 lakh this year. It is observed the most generous packages have been offered in the consultation field, which attracts many young students aspiring to carve a niche for themselves in the corporate world.
Average packages at St Stephen’s have increased from 8 Lakh p/a last year to 8.9 Lakh p/a this year. At Hindu College, the gross offer has increased from Rs 2.9 crore last year to Rs 3.2 crore this year. A marginal increase was observed all over, and can be attributed to the success of placement cells in coordinating and organizing the placement drives, as well as to the qualifications of the aspirant.
Top Companies look for Extra Curricular activities, Social Work, Analytical and Logical abilities and communication skills, apart from good grades.
DU Beat congratulates all students for their extraordinary achievements.
