What’s hot and what’s not? In the last one year, a lot seems to have changed in the top 20 B-schools in India. McKinsey has become the most preferred recruiter on the campus. In fact, consultancy firms dominate the list - barring Lehman Brothers and TCS, three out of top five are consultancy firms. Tata Group’s TAS has for the first time figured in the top five list, a sharp jump from No 24 rank which it occupied last year.

Campustrack Survey ’06 is an annual survey conducted by AC Nielsen among 1,200 students across top 20 business schools of India.

It has been a big come down for the IT majors Microsoft, TCS, Oracle - who have fallen off the top ten list this year. Microsoft was the most preferred employer on the B-school campus last year. Even Google, which was the second most preferred recruiter last year has dropped to No 7. Banks seemed to have bounced back in thse top 10 list with Deutsche Bank, HSBC and Citigroup figuring in the top 10.

TAS is the only Indian firm that has figured in the top 10 list. According to Rajesh Dahiya, vice-president, TAS & Sourcing, Group Human Resources, Tata Group, “In the recent years, we have been working hard at creating very challenging opportunities for young talented TAS recruits, aggressively developing them and communicating with the campuses all this excitement. We are making progress as more potential recruits at the campuses share this excitement. We need to continuously keep connecting with the campus students and communicating the exciting career opportunities in the Tata Group.”
