Dear All,

I got  this question from an aspirant  which was posted at http://www.scit.edu/admissions/feedback.php ,  Query ID : 447

I had to give a long answer, and hence thought of blogging it..

****************************************************************************

Respected Sir

I am a bit worried and tensed with some anonymous posts by one or two who have possibly passed out of SCIT or other symbiosis institutes. These posts have been in circulation in some public forum. They focus on placements at SCIT, the placement officer, the placement cell and also to be frank, even about your attitude too! I will be very glad if you could please clear some of my doubts/ questions. I ask these questions as I have a very good profile and have applied only for SCIT and others B schools, and my decision to join SCIT ( if selected) will depend on several factors and your answers to these questions is also one among them.

  1. What’s the current placement scenario? Are all students from SCIT placed?
  2. Why are you not updating the placement statistics for the current batch?
  3. Do Big four and other consulting firms recruit students from SCIT based on the recommendations by placement officer?
  4. Could please let us know the names of placement team members? Are they all from a specific region or state?
  5. Do you restrict students from posting their opinions on facebook and other public forums?
  6. Do you always display the correct placement statistics? ( Can you swear on god and claim it TRUE?!)

A honest answer will be highly appreciated

My Answer 

Dear Aspirant

Before  I go ahead with  answers , I have a request – Just ponder on this– “If someone is straight forward and feels whatever he or she claims is true, and is  bothered about everyone’s well being why do they choose to remain anonymous?! ”

You have also informed ( guessed ?) that those, who post such stuff, have  passed out of SCIT or possibly from other symbiosis institutes.If this is the case  they could easily reveal their identity, like their mobile number, name, batch PRN number etc without any apprehensions what so ever!

 Now let me answer your questions one by one  

1.What’s the current placement scenario? Are all students from SCIT placed?

A) The current placement scenario is good.

B) All eligible students (those who have a CGPA of 2.5 out of 4.0) have taken ATLEAST 3 interviews, based on their interest and choice. Best of the corporate brands have picked students from SCIT and the process is still on.

C) There are approximately 15 eligible students (those who have a CGPA of 2.5 out of 4.0)  still waiting to get placed. We still have 45 more days to go, and are optimistic that these  students will get their dream jobs!

D) 80% of the open category students have secured more than 2.5 as their CGPA

F) We never claim “All students get placed” as SCIT is not a placement agency! We certainly focus on the eligible students, and give opportunities to them. In fact  we also have students who have opted out of placement process for becoming entrepreneurs. I suggest  you must view  this video posted  at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXMGoJxDt2M .  

G) There are corporate houses who insist on looking at ALL STUDENTS, this helped us in giving opportunities all our students, which includes students having CGPA less than 2.5 . Many have cashed on such  opportunities to get  placed.   

 You can check our website on 28th Feb 2013 for more details.

2. Why are you not updating the placement statistics for the current batch?

 As already informed our website will be updated on 28th Feb 2013 with  details related to placements! I think it is  fair as the merit list and waiting list is getting released on this date. Hence all those (Selected and Waitlisted) who are keen to know about placements, can get them without any hassle. All those who are rejected can also know it, if they are interested and eligible they can apply and give a try to get into our PGDITBM program! Life does not give a second chance but SCIT does :-)!  

3. Do Big four and other consulting firms recruit students from SCIT based on the recommendations by placement officer?

Big four taking people on recommendation?!  This actually made me laugh … I wanna make you clear on one thing, its not only Big Four, ANY corporate house which recruits students are not doing charity to us!  They PAY all those hires! Unless the Technical round/ rounds the HR round is also cleared, no one can get into any consulting firm! All corporate houses do their due diligence and pick students to join them. So never ever assume such things!

4. Could please let us know the names of placement team members? Are they all from a specific region or state?

I wonder why are you so keen to know the names! Well here it is J Sahil Khurana, Sree Sharan Sanku, Harsha Hatti , Prinyanka Jain, Mayank Garg, Kaustabh Bhattacharjee,  Saily Kalbhor, Prateek Dighe and Nikhil Motlag.  From the names you can certainly guess that these students are from different states including  Delhi, Andhara Pradesh, West Bengal , Gujarat covering East , West,  North & South of India and certainly not from a specific state or region

5. Do you restrict students from posting their opinions on SCIT facebook and other public forums?

 I never restrict the students to post their opinions on face book, but I have certainly advised them not to post anything offensive –Like –  “Posting of Photos taken which are basically Pranks played by them mimicking something offensive” or “Posts which demean a religion” – this advice was needed as you know the tag – “LIKE-SHARE-BAIL”  was becoming popular at one point of time!

6. Do you always display the correct placement statistics? (Can you swear on god can claim it TRUE?!)

Swear on god! What made you guess, of me being a believer!

Yes, I always ensure that correct placement stats are posted on our website. You can check https://blog.scit.edu/2012/11/02/scit-placement-stats/ where I have stated that right since inception in 2001 till date, a total of  1597 have graduated from SCIT and of them 1477 were placed from campus and the balance 120 either started their own firm or opted out of placements or did not find a job immediately after they graduated

I have one more suggestion  for you – Look at all the blogs that I have posted  – I have written about the CRISIL rating( they have rated our program after examining all the process which includes placements), the Summer Internship with scholarship at RITS- Japan, the awards own by students and accolades of SCIT and many more!

Doesn’t your common prudence tell you that SCIT is a good B school for sure!
