Start-ups and large e-commerce companies such as Flipkart, Ola, Oyo Rooms, Jabong, CarDekho.com, Shopclues and Bewakoof. com, plan to hire more engineers this year in corporate and managerial function. They are looking to hire for various roles such as operations, marketing, business finance, procurement, etc. MBAs have been preferred for such roles as they save Rs 5-6 lakh every year if they hire an engineer instead of an MBA from a top b-school like the IIMs. Moreover, with every function becoming more tech-enabled, IITians have an edge over B-School graduates, hiring managers.
