Recently, was a part of panel discussion of bringing corporates and campuses together for better synergy and placement initiatives. Will not thrive too much on outcome of discussions but one student asked me a very pointed question. This question is in mind of millions of students and I will try to elaborate on this question and will try not to answer it. Let us introspect and would like to have post comment on what they think particularly the Human Resources of corporates and conglomerates.

The question was - "WHY ARE CORPORATES, INDUSTRIES OR CONGLOMERATES LOOK AT TIER 1 COLLEGES FOR HIRING BUT IGNORE LESSER KNOWN COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES?" Are we lesser students, don't we have the drive and passion to make it big? What are we missing?

I replied him as much as my intellect allowed and I have some different views but the question being very pertinent, thought would post here.
