Kolkata: For the first
time in the history of any Indian Institute of Management, the

the premier B-school at Calcutta - the IIMC, a release said
According to the Indian Institute of Management-Calcutta (IIMC),
the World Bank has offered three positions to students in its
financial instruments and treasury departments, as part of the
B-school's summer placement programme that kicked off Nov 5.
This is the first time that students from any of the 13 IIMs are
being recruited for internship at the organisation.
Besides the World Bank, other international banking organisations
like Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, Nomura and HSBC, JP Morgan
Chase, Barclays Capital, Royal Bank of Scotland, Credit Suisse,
Standard Chartered, and Rothschild also invited IIMC's students
for summer internships.
Despite the sluggish economic scenario, private equity firms like
Macquarie Infrastructure Fund and India Alternatives, and Mizuho
securities, the third largest investment bank in Japan, also
picked up students from IIM-C.
Consulting firms BCG, Bain & Co, and A.T. Kearney initiated the
summer placement programme that saw 230 offers made to IIMC's
students in the first two days.
