The XIMB Alumni Committee has continued making great strides in its dedicated efforts to preserve, promoteand sustain relationships with the alumni, thus playing out an integral part in the functioning of the university.
The major highlight of the year was the successful organization of the Business Excellence Summit to celebrate 30 years of XIMB, in close tandem with the Student Executive Council, which made XIMB a talking point at national levels.Around 30 esteemed alumni who are leaders of high reputation and stature graced the event in what is being deemed as one of the biggest and most epic events organized at XIMB in many years. The summit was highlighted with leadership talks by the alumni on their perspectives of the industry, panel discussions, alumni interactions and cultural programmes. The event was touted as a huge success by the alumni who were part of this summit.
This year also saw the reunion of the 1997 batch who celebrated their 20 years at XIMB with great splendor. Another successful event "The Grand Homecoming" was organized for the batch of 1992. Everyone departed with the resolve to visit again and spread the message amongst all who could not visit this time.
Another highlight was as a part of Xpressions'17, an online quiz "EnigmaX" was conducted for the alumni which saw participation in huge numbers and saw encouraging responses from the competition. The quiz garnered a lot of positive feedback from the alumni and they requested us to conduct more competitions like these.
AlCom also worked actively with other committees to promote “XIMB Day” amongst the Alumni by encouraging them to revive old memories by posting their old pictures taken at XIMB. With X-Alma and KYA ventures, AlCom continues to reach alumni across the world and strengthen the XIMBian bond. We also shared the current achievements of alumni with the students of XIMB through social forums. Alcom also shared a series of tips namely ‘Alumni Portal Tips’ for the alumni to leverage connections and use the portal of the Alumni Committee to their benefit.
Like Every Year, AlCom released Unnayan – The Annual Alumni Magazine in February 2018. AlCom will also prepare and distribute the yearbook for the outgoing batch of 2018.
The National Chapter Election for XIMB Alumni Association was conducted in January 2018. Mr. Debabrata Mishra of the PGDM Batch 89-91 was elected as the President and Mr. Chandra Shekhar Chitrala of PGDM batch 1988-1990 was elected as the Vice-President (Uncontested).
The Alumni committee apprised the alumni of the events, business conclaves and leadership talks held in the Institute through Facebook and LinkedIn.
The Alumni Committee of XIMB has endeavoured to achieve alumni engagement with the existing students and is fulfilling its mission of “one family”.
What makes all of this possible is the loyal support and commitment of the XIMB Family—our alumni, our faculties, committee members, the SEC and the students.
