It's that time of the year again! Following the whirlwind of final exams and farewell blues, students are now focussing on how to get a good job and make it big in the professional world. Especially for students walking of Delhi University – one of the top ranked academic institutions in the country.
Famous for its quality education and unmatched exposure, the Delhi University also has a proven track record when it comes to getting good salaries for its students. When it comes to Delhi University Placements Packages, the university is home to some of the top colleges in India, making it a high priority among the recruiters and employers.
The Delhi University Placement Season for the academic year 2016-2017 kick-started with the best placements till date, leaving the students excited for the offers in companies' kitties. The placements have only become better over the years in terms of both, numbers and the package. Here are the top three colleges which have witnessed the best placements over the years:
A Stephanian grabbed Rs 40 Lakh Package
One of the best colleges of DU, St Stephen's has received the highest package of Rs 40 lakhs till now in 2017, which is significantly higher than last year's biggest package of Rs 29 lakhs.
Lady Sri Ram College impressed with Rs 34 Lakh top package
Next in the line is Lady Sri Ram College which is located in South Campus. A student from the college bagged Rs34-lakh package which is a sharp rise in comparison to last year's offer of Rs 29 lakhs by Parthenon-EY.
SRCC still in the game with Rs 29 Lakh highest salary package
Three students from Delhi University's highly popular college Sri Ram College Of Commerce (SRCC) bagged a package of 29 lakhs in the November placement drive by strategy consultancy company Parthenon-EY, and this has only increased the excitement among other students passing out this year. The highest package for SRCC was 17 lakhs last year.
FMS Suffers from the Demonetisation Effect
The Faculty of Management Studies (FMS) saw slight slump in the offers made from FMCGs and the college authorities blamed demonetisation for the same. Despite the roadblock, the institution recorded a four-year high in average CTC as it increased to Rs 20.5 lakh per annum from 17 lakhs in 2015. The highest international offer is Rs 1 crore this year. The number of international offers saw an increase—from 6 to 12 in 2017.
Apart from the individual placement cells of colleges, the Central Placement Cell (CPC) of Delhi University plays a huge role in helping the students in getting their dream job. Any student of the University can register himself with the CPC and can sit for the drive. This is has turned out to be a big advantage for students from off campus colleges which did not have flourishing placement drives.
In the recent past, recruiters and companies have started looking beyond colleges like IIT and IIM for talent and Delhi University students are definitely on their radar. DU is famous for providing education to students from diverse streams, which come from different parts of the country. Known to stress on extra-curricular activities as much as academics, DU has now emerged as the latest hub for recruiters.
