This is an independent clarification issued by the Placement Committee of IIM Ahmedabad.
The official Press release of IIMA post Cluster 3 was released on 23rd February 2013 and can be found on the IIMA website at this location – Press Release Finals 2013 (Cluster 3).
However, it has been observed that an article published by a particular media agency yesterday carried speculative and unverified information that is over and above the contents of this release. In particular, a firm which was reported to have made the highest number of offers in Cluster 3, did not participate in the final placement process during Clusters 1, 2 or 3. Not only is the reported data factually wrong, no attempt was made to verify it with any IIMA placement committee member. At this juncture, we wish to convey our disappointment over the publishing of such inaccuracies regarding the on-going Final Placements.
IIMA’s Placement Committee wishes to explicitly clarify that the official press release has been our only communication to the media regarding Final Placements, and hence any additional data published is unsubstantiated and not verified by any source within the Placement Committee. As per the IPRS, we differentiate between individual firm/student level data and aggregate statistics. We are committed to publishing audited placement reports as per IPRS standards. Prospective students and the community at large are urged to refer only to these audited reports, freely available on IIMA’s website, and not rely on speculative and unverified reports.
