IIM placements are like cattle fair

Campus placements at top business schools are like cattle fairs held at Pushkar every year, said Tata Sons Chief (Group HR) Satish Pradhan while addressing the annual national business summit Confluence-2011 at Indian Institute of Management (IIM) -Ahmedabad on Friday 25 Nov 2011.

"Just like cattle is paraded and traded at the fair, the highest tag goes to the student with the best performance during the two years (of their programme)," Satish Pradhan said. He said first everybody competes hard to get into the top rung institutes like IIM-A and then they compete harder to get better packages, neglecting other options like becoming entrepreneurs, business leaders and agents of change.

"Is that the way to go? Will you be happy selling derivatives, living in a penthouse and driving expensive cars while the rest of the world goes to the dogs?" he asked. He urged the students to find ways to improve the quality of their competitiveness. "One of the things that cannot be taught is working with the people. Events like Confluence are an opportunity to learn and relish such things," Pradhan said, adding that students should not only focus on learning to upgrade their portfolio but learn intangible lessons from life around them.
