Placement 100%
  • Vanguard Business School (VBS) is proud to report the completion of its very first Final Placement Process. The year 2013 has been a difficult year for placements with top B-schools including the IIMs reporting difficulties in terms of placements due to a slowdown in the economy. Under such difficult circumstances Vanguard B-school Bangalore is proud to report 100% placements.
  • This success of the placement for the PGPM, Class of 2013 represents the triumph of 2 years of continuous efforts from Vanguard’s Team Management, Placement Committee and Students. Apart from some IIMs, very few management institutions in the country have been able to successfully place all their students within this fiscal year – another testimony to Vanguard’s Corporate Connect and Rigorous Training in placing students. It gives us immense pride to share the Placement Report for the PGPM Class of 2013, Vanguard Business School.
