We are happy that LIBA has been able to create such change managers and prepare them to fulfill the market needs.” He added, “More marketing job offers were made than sales, this year. LIBA saw many new firms participating from sectors like pharmaceutical and online venture companies. We were delighted to have more number of repeat recruiters which only shows that LIBA students have continued to deliver the best performance at workplace” With the recent introduction of Social Media Marketing as an elective for its esteemed 2 year full time MBA programme LIBA not only became the first college in India and third in the world to offer so but also bagged placement this season in that space.The batch also saw 3 students opting out of placements to start their own firm, treading on the path of entrepreneurship.
