Jan '08
Although 2007, had been a proud year for Indian economy with over 12 percent rise in rupee value, for most industries it was difficult to bear this pressure. The exports in the last few months of previous year have taken a steep plunge.

With the changing picture of Indian economy, todays enlightened youth, is trying to recognize better opportunities in emerging sectors like retail, merchandising, branding and supply chain management other than the traditional work prospects.

This trend has become quite prominent among the students of NIFT, as a large number of educatee in the current session have been exploring arenas other than traditional apparel and textiles exports management as most of the Indian and international fashion brands, retail companies, hire NIFT students at different management positions.

Top companies like Madura, Arvind, Pantaloon, Carrefour, were among the recruiters of NIFT. Students also made it to overseas enterprises from Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Dubai and Madagascar.
