In December of last year, Anshu Sood, an MBA graduate from Panjab University, secured the highest salary package of Rs 58.48 lakh per annum during her campus placement at University Business School (UBS). She was selected for a managerial position at Tolaram Group, a Singapore-based holding company.
According to a report by The Tribune, Anshu Sood was the sole student selected by Tolaram Group, and her salary package of Rs 58.48 lakh per annum represented a 10.22% increase from the previous year’s highest package of Rs 53.06 lakh per annum offered to a UBS student during a placement drive.
Anshu Sood hails from Hoshiarpur, Punjab, and holds a Bachelor of Engineering degree from the University Institute of Engineering Technology in Hoshiarpur. She later pursued an MBA from UBS and gained marketing experience as an intern with Airtel during her summer break.
When she was selected for the managerial post, Sood had expected an average package of Rs 20 lakh per annum. However, her hard work and excellent performance led her to exceed all the parameters with distinction.
“After my campus placement, I am delighted to have received the highest package. I will be joining the company’s operations in May next year. I am thankful to my teachers and the placement cell of UBS for their support,” she said.
“I wanted to excel in the world of managerial operations after my previous stint with a company. The nature of the work impressed me a lot,” she further added.
