Whose salary is it anyway?

A couple of IIM-B grads have requested that the high salaries some students get after placements be kept secret, as their families have been harassed after their details were made public. Now, there are conflicting interests here: the institution would naturally want to publicise these salaries, as a metric of the value of the education they impart; but the students are entirely right in feeling that it violates their privacy.

The solution: the institute should be able to reveal the highest and average salaries its students received, but without names of either the students or the companies concerned. That should serve both purposes.
