Debashis Chatterjee, director IIM Kozhikode, said IIMK's diversity and talent pool has always driven our placement process with elan.

"The ability to secure a broad mandate of offers amidst a challenging economic and business environment was possible due to an encouraging participation from recruiters and through the ever strengthening IIMK alumni support, who are also expanding the institute's global footprints as our ambassadors. We also believe the tremendous response to summer placements is an optimistic omen to our forthcoming final placement season," said Chatterjee.

The 2021 drive saw a huge increase in the participation from well-known companies.
