FMCG is still the preferred choice for Management Graduates at the campus: Nielsen
Compared to the previous year, FMCG has seen the highest rise in preference and Management Consulting and Investment Banking have followed suit. Oil & Energy, Diversified Conglomerates and the Automobile Sector have entered the top 10, edging out Financial Institutions, Entertainment/ Media and Indian Banks which were previously on the top 10 list.
"A diversification of sectoral preference, coupled with a resurgence of sectors like management consulting and investment banking companies is symptomatic of greater optimism within the prospective talent pool. However, there is still a "flight to stability' with sectors and employers that are seen to offer greater resilience during downturns gaining greater preference" said Surekha Poddar, Executive Director, The Nielsen Company.
