CBS Concludes Admission Process with Placements topped at

7.24 LPA
From a humble beginning in 1987, College of Business Studies (CBS) has shown consistently scintillating
results in corporate and academic circles. In 2007, BBS and BFIA packages touched Rs. 7.24 LPA. Well-
thought improvements in selection process and intense student-industry interaction through CDC have made
CBS attain the pinnacle in undergraduate courses in India today.

With the first cut-off lists for DU colleges just around the corner, Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies, or
CBS, as popularly known in India has already concluded its much talked about rigorous admission process with
announcing the results of its intake for BBS and BFIA 2007-2010 batches, yesterday i.e. 21st June, 2007, thus,
ready to transform the just out of school kids into budding corporates of future India Inc.

Maintaining the initiatives of innovative selection process, CBS has selected a total of about 160 students this year
from a whooping figure of 12,955 applicants from all across the country, which translates to 116 applicants per seat
in the general category. The strenuous admission procedure involves two stages: a written examination and a group
discussion followed by an interview, the panel for which comprises the college faculty as well as industry experts.
Prapti Singh, Apeejay Noida Topper (95.8%) with a shock, said, “I was not expecting to be selected in this great
institution and I would prefer to enter CBS than to join Eco(H) in any other institute of DU.” Mr. Dhirendra Kumar,
CEO, Value Research India and CBS alumnus, says, "It is the ability of CBS to attract the best students. It was also
very clear that CBS is an aspired destination for students."

Abhinav Jain, Modern School, Barakhamba Raod (92%) who made it to the final list said, “This is the biggest
achievement of my life. It’s the best course at the undergraduate level, just equivalent to MBA program. I have
applied to other colleges but now, won’t even consider them.” Over last few years, CBS has ensured active
participation of its alumni of its super senior batches in interviewing CBS aspirants. This unique combination of
faculty and industry leaders is helping CBS to select the future leaders. Mr. Naresh Priyadarshi, Business Group
Director & Head of Business Consulting at Synovate, and alumnus of CBS says, “…we have focused on traits that
would make the aspirant a good, successful manager in future. Such traits included overall intelligence and presence
of mind, team skills and strong fundamentals in academics.” Other panelists also appreciated the dual benefits of this
concept, to ensure active involvement of the college alumni and to draw the benefits of their experience and industry
exposure. CDC has further catalyzed the impact through persistent interaction between industry, faculty and
students. Dhruv, DPS Mathura Road (93%), another selected candidate said, “CBS is the best place to start your
career with. You get the right knowledge with the best skills to arm yourself with.”

What makes CBS so special?

It is a pragmatic mix of its time-tested pedagogy with comprehensive coverage of all management concepts, strong
faculty with doctoral and higher education from IIMs / FMS, student-industry interaction through Career Development
Centre (CDC), sustained inputs from alumni and an excellent student intake process.

Every year, about 30% of graduating class steps towards MBA / PG courses in top tier B-Schools across the world.
The rest, fairly young in life, take up the challenging roles in corporate world and prove their mettle.

The Results are Evident – All these factors have made applications to CBS increase by 10-12% every year.


A whopping increase in numbers of companies participating in campus selection process and value of job offers,
maintaining CBS legacy of 100% placements. March 2007 witnessed 41 industry leaders visited the campus
including giants like AT Kearney, Aviva India, CB Richard Ellis, Deloitte, HCL Technologies, Hewitt Associates,
HSBC, McKinsey KC, Synovate Business Consulting and UBS. The highest number of offers was made by a
multinational Investment Banker, recruiting 19 students for its arm in Hyderabad. The average package
escalated to Rs. 4.44 LPA, a 50.5% YOY leap, while the highest pay package mounted to Rs. 7.24 LPA, a robust
20.6% growth. “…CBS has managed to consistently churn quality managers at the undergraduate level…,” says
Surender Mehta, GM, Human Resources, Hutchison Essar and CBS Alumnus.

The numbers speak for the confidence that the industry and recruiters place in the profile of CBS
graduates, and have been the result of comprehensive efforts including workshops on resume building
and interview and GD skills along with industry interactions, empowering the students with better
