On whether such initiatives would eventually lead to the setting up of a corporate management school, Mr T. V. Mohandas Pai, Member of Board, Director, HR, Education, Research and Administration, Infosys, said: "We are not starting a B-school, but have started management training courses at our corporate university and doubled our intake of B-school grads."
The company will hire close to 450 management graduates from across all the IIMs, XLRI, TISS and Symbiosis in the next few days. "We have decided to do large investments in consulting and enterprise solutions for which we need this talent," said Ms Nandita Gurjar, Senior Vice- President and Group Head, HR, Infosys Technologies.
The two profiles that are coming in would be in consulting and sales, she added.
Last year, Infosys hired 200 B-school grads and has doubled the number this year. "About 50 of these would be for HR," she added. Campus-offer conversion rates across both B-schools and engineering colleges have touched 93 per cent this year against 70 per cent last year, Ms Gurjar said.
Infosys is also visiting half the number of engineering colleges (500) as compared with the previous years, to hire over 15,000 students.
The company has increased its training days for freshers from about 140 days to 180 , she said.
Infosys has one of the largest corporate universities in Asia located at Mysore training 30,000 new recruits every year. The Infosys Leadership Institute trains executives and managers in the company..
