These institutes are expecting to almost double their PPOs as compared to last year. Unusually, most sectors including telecom and IT have seen PPOs coming in. Goldman Sachs, for instance, recruited 68 summer interns this year from b-schools across India and plan to convert majority of them to full-time employees.
