The year 2019 wasn’t satisfactory for businesses across the country. As per the reports published by the Economic Times, “India’s GDP growth has dropped to 4.5 percent in the July-September quarter of 2019-20, a free fall from the government’s ambitious call for a double-digit growth not so long ago.” Apparently, the decline in the economic activities happened last year has not really affected the recruitment activities in India’s premier colleges. For instance, Bangalore based Reva University and RV College of Engineering saw a considerable increase in the number of companies visiting the campus offering salary packages ranging from Rs. 4 LPA to Rs. 50 LPA.
It is not just the colleges in Bangalore that performed well in this difficult time. Many excellent institutions that do not have a Bangalore address have also managed to attract recruiters to their campus and grab high-paid jobs for their students. However, Karnataka as a state has so many things to be done to become a global hub of education. The state has been able to establish the capacity, as the number of higher education institutions increased three-fold in the last 10 years. Now, the need of the hour is to bring them on par with international standards to ensure quality skilled and technical manpower.
