“Despite the prevailing economic uncertainty our largest ever batch has completed summer placements in record six days time.

He said that last year,summer placement had taken about 10 days to get completed. Srivastava said that Fidelity International,which recruits exclusively from “Ivy League B-Schools” for its internship program,chose IIM-Lucknow as its first recruitment destination in India.

Not only this,technology based firms like Microsoft,Google,Yahoo,Flipkart,Amazon,Yatra.com and Naukri.com also participated more actively this year with variety of profiles compared to previous years.
