The PGP-FABM (Post-Graduate Programme in Food & Agribusiness Management) summer internship placement process for the batch of 2019 was completed successfully yesterday. The batch, comprising 45 students, pursued career aspirations in the industries of their choice. The successful completion of the placement process within a day is a testament of the high quality learning experience at the institute and the robust placement process that provides adequate flexibility to both recruiters and students.


The programme was well received by the industry and more than 25 companies participated in the placement process. The placements witnessed a balance of roles from all the sectors like Banking & Financial Services, Commodities, Development Farm Equipment, Food industry, FMCG, Inputs, Retail and other sectors.


The placement season witnessed regular recruiters such as Godrej Agrovet, Marico, ConAgra Foods, Cloudtail, Reckitt Benckiser, Govt. Of Telangana, Jubilant Consumer and General Mills. Many new recruiters showed a keen interest in the batch which is visible by the participation of industry giants like Unibic Foods, United Phosphorous Limited, Yes Bank and Murugappa group among others.


Entrepreneurial Holiday for Interns


IIM-Ahmedabad provided students with a unique opportunity to pursue their own business idea under the mentorship of Centre for Innovation Incubation and Entrepreneurship (CIIE) as a part of summer internship. One student opted out of the summer placement process this year to pursue the idea.


Prof. Asha Kaul, the Placement Chairperson said, “This year, once again, the PGP FABM students have been able to ‘dream’ their dreams. With more opportunities and greater number of companies visiting campus, the students, beginning this summer, are geared towards making the right career choices. Similarly, companies with a proclivity to hire students for niche areas have been pleasantly surprised.”


The change in the name of the programme from ABM to FABM has been positively viewed by the recruiters. IIMA’s unparalleled focus on Food & agriculture industry has been recognised by the industry. This year, for the first time, we had 6 new global food firms visit the campus.


Prabal Chauhan, the Recruitment Secretary of the PGP-FABM Programme said, “We are delighted with the way industry has responded providing new and unique opportunities to FABM students. As many as 6 new firms showed immense enthusiasm for our niche program. The students continue to attract the recruiters with their business acumen and insights.


The placement team is delighted to provide excellent opportunities to students and roles aligned to their expectations for building careers. I am sure the students would continue with the more than 50 year old legacy and make their mark across the range of industry verticals.”


Further details about the placement process including details about compensation will be released in an audited report, as per the Indian Placement Reporting Standards (IPRS). The IPRS is an initiative introduced by IIMA to bring about greater transparency in B-school placement reporting across the country.


The Post Graduate Programme in Food & Agribusiness Management (PGP-FABM) is a residential 2-year full-time programme designed to meet the diverse demands of agribusiness, food and allied sectors through specialised managerial talent. Running since 1972, IIM-Ahmedabad's PGP-FABM programme is currently ranked number one among the top programmes worldwide in the MBA (Agribusiness) / Food Industry Management Global Ranking for the fourth year running by Eduniversal, Paris.
