Executive Job Opportunities in India

India is the world's second fastest growing economy, or fourth largest when measured by factoring in purchasing power parity. India's technological prowess and rising middle class have made it a fierce competitor in the global war for senior executive talent. As a result, a wealth of executive job opportunities are available.

Iconic companies in India include the Tata Group, Infosys, Wipro, Mahindra & Mahindra, Bharti Airtel and their counterparts on the Bombay Stock Exchange.

2008 and Beyond - AESC Emerging Markets Study

In 2008, the AESC surveyed its member executive search firms in India, China, Brazil, Russia, and the Middle East to contrast trends in senior executive recruitment across major developing markets. Results of the study indicated that expatriate packages were being phased out.  In the big picture, executive opportunities for Indians are on the rise.
