The roles offered to students were data scientists and analysts. The average hike achieved by students over their previous salaries was 222%, with the highest hike being 627.3%.

The interviews kicked off at 5 AM, and the rush to recruit top students resulted in companies making lucrative offers to top-ranking students. Leading companies like PwC, Colgate, PepsiCo, Wells Fargo, Abbott, ITC, WNS and many more participated in the campus placement process this year. 

Professor Charanpreet Singh, Co-founder of Praxis Business School, said, “Praxis Business School continues to be a preferred choice of top recruiters. Our relationship with recruiters continues to grow stronger every year, and the results are a testament to the students’ hard work, alumni, and the Placement Committee. It also speaks of the academic rigour and professional excellence maintained by the institute.”

He further stated, “The end of DayZero marks the end of what has thus far been a remarkable recruitment season in 2022”.

Praxis has the unique distinction of attracting students from every corner of the country to this program. The industry focussed curriculum and the academic rigour have ensured alumni from this program now occupy critical positions in the industry. This is underlined by the repeat presence of recruiters who attend the process every placement season.
