KUSOM Placement Cell was launched in the year 2011 with an aim to bridge the gap between academia and the corporate world. The Cell is completely run and managed by students under the leadership of a faculty member who acts as its coordinator. It facilitates undergraduate and postgraduate students to get placements in various organizations by sharing information regarding potential company vacancies and by hosting the recurring annual mega event—KUSOM Job and Internship Fair (KJIF). Besides these, the activities of the Cell include organizing events like presentations by companies, guest lectures, training programs, and workshops, alumni connect, etc., in order to produce industry-ready graduates.

Organizations receive several benefits from out of their collaboration with KUSOM Placement Cell. Some of them are:
Hiring the right candidates directly without the intermediation of any third party thereby saving both time and cost. Placement Cell facilitates the selection process by making available the student profiles and sharing the requirements of the companies via social media platforms.
Enhancing the level of brand awareness among students and graduates via company presentations and guest lecture sessions that help them to interact with prospective candidates and assess if they fit into their organization or not.
Selecting the best fits for your organizations as students of KUSOM are groomed in a rigorous and highly professional academic climate and are equipped with the employable skill sets that match the needs of the current market.
Signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with KUSOM for both internships and jobs while also supporting the academia-corporate partnership endeavors by organizing student focused events.
