2. Which companies & type of Industry will come to VBS for recruitment?
Expected Once could be a fluke, twice could be a coincidence, but five times – that suggests a pattern. A pattern that Vanguard Business School, Bangalore feels a great sense of pride about. We feel great satisfaction in disclosing the final placement report for the year 2016. The Fourth Placements season at VBS has been phenomenal as VBS continues to be among the first business schools in Bangalore to complete 100% placements. You can check detailed list of companies, Sectors and job profiles by clicking here https://vanguardbschool.com/placements
3. When do placements start and how long do they last. Does VBS guarantee placements? International Placement?
Final placement cycle typically starts in the Month of October during the second year of the program and continues until 100% of the batch is placed. The course completes in Mid- April and Vanguard has achieved 100% placements before course completion in both our concluded placement cycles. This year we are likely to compete placements by Mid- March.
Vanguard guarantees 100% placements and has delivered it without fail so far. But this largely also depends on how prepared our students are for the roles companies offer during placement cycles.
International Companies have expressed interest in hiring students from VBS and have participated in our placement process but so far no student has bagged placements offers abroad directly from campus. However, two students from Vanguard have transitioned to international roles after completing successful stints with companies that they joined during Campus placements. We are hopeful of securing international placements within this placement cycle or the next at the very latest.
4. Would it be a right decision to leave job and go for an MBA at VBS as it has no placement record or assurance?
As a matter of fact, Vanguard does indeed have a very strong record of placement assurance. Our placement reports are more transparent, detailed and impressive in terms of Companies, Roles offered and Sectors represented than any other competitive B-School. Certainly, going through our placement reports will give you a clearer understanding of whether doing an MBA from VBS at this juncture of your career will boost your future prospects in terms of better position, greater responsibilities and higher monetary compensation.
The two year program will actually be an investment for your career, in terms of getting exposed to far more opportunities and building a strong network. Keep in mind that Salaries secured on campus or otherwise during under graduation are likely to see a 10-15% y-o-y increases even in case of a very strong performance appraisal. Since this an extremely personal decision we would recommend you visit our campus and meet our director as well as interact with students ( some of whom may have had similar profiles before taking the call to join Vanguard) for any further queries in this regard .
5. What if my child will not be placed in a good company ?
We are here to put in our maximum efforts for our students’ career and not just for their first job. We will be here to assist the student till he/she gets placed in a good company and this is only possible if students joining VBS show their best performance in all the Interviews & utilize the opportunities given to them. Doing so will reduce the chances of what you are suggesting happening.
