Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore (India) in the year 2007, has recorded 70 Pre-Placement Offers (PPOs) for a batch of 250 students.
The offers, the highest across all IIMs in India, come at a time when final campus placement, is still six months away this year. PPOs are offers for final placement made to the students based on their performance during the summer internship at a firm after the first year of MBA course.

Firms like McKinsey & Co, Boston Consulting Group (BCG), Bain & Co, A T Kearney and Triology have given PPOs to all summer interns they hired from IIM-B campus in 2006.
