A question that many candidates for NIFT ask me is - Where do NIFT students finally work ?
Well here is a list of placements that NIFT arranges or students arrange on their own. Please understand that this info has been collected from NIFT students and alumni all over India. I am not accountable for its correctness, in case somebody decided to give me wrong info. But let me assure you, everyone I asked had a decent level of sanity and as far as I know, the information is authentic and true.
Thank you to everyone who contributed! All the stuff I have written further is quoted from others.
Hey, I'm working in United Colors of Benetton as a retail merchandiser for South east asia, enjoying my job to the fullest.
All the others are either working with brand or are in retail... doing good i believe. Companies where PG students got placed are -
GI, Shahi Exports, NIKE, Tommy, GAP, Li and Fung, Carrefour.
In india, PG students are placed very well in production as well as merchandising. After 3 yrs of experience in production, some of them are working as factory managers.
