It's a big proud moment for Delhi's prestigious Lady Shri Ram (LSR) College. A final year economics student has bagged an annual salary offer of Rs 38 lakh with a global bank in the country for an entry-level role. This is highest salary package ever offered at the campus for a domestic position, according to an ET report.  Moreover, the offer has also beaten the average package of Rs 20 lakh bagged by students at the top Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) of Ahmedabad, Bengaluru and Kolkata. 


According to the report, similar offer was also bagged by a Lady Shri Ram (LSR) College student last year, but that was for the position with multinational lender in Singapore. Image source: du.ac.in


The placement coordinator at the college told ET that companies offering the highest salary at the LSR campus this year included Bank of America Merrill Lynch, LEK Consulting, Boston Consulting Group and Bloomberg. Image source: Reuters
