XIMB has a long history of successful alumni who have graduated from this institute, and its alumni network is one of the strongest and is connected to the degree that only a few institutions in India can boast of. The essence of any university is also assessed by the strength of its alumni network, and fostering and maintaining this alumni network and the relationships that it brings has been our sole purpose. As we reflect on our work for the past year, there were many challenges, but we never faltered in our firm resolve to uphold the integrity of our committee and, by extension, the institute. It was an eventful journey that saw many initiatives instrumental in promoting close alumni relations with the institute and the students.
Despite the challenges during the times of the COVID-19 pandemic, we were proud to introduce “Odyssey – A Journey to Excellence,” a series of webinars with the purpose of enabling students to understand various business aspects and interact and learn from our distinguished alumni. The knowledge that one must have taken away from these series is a testament to the love our Alumni stalwarts have for our institution.
With various programs, we have tried to connect students with our illustrious alumni. We started off with “Alumni Connect” for the incoming class of 2022, where our alumni enlightened students on how they should plan and navigate their MBA journey and beyond. We then conducted “Disha”– our annual student-alumni, domain-specific interaction event, to help the students of both batches with career guidance. With #XBuzz we tried to bring to you the achievements of our distinguished alumni. The “X-Alma” program is all set to roll out to help the enthusiastic interns in their SIPs. We are ending this eventful year on a high note with the most significant souvenir of remembrance we could possibly hope for – “Reminiscence”– the yearbook; a dossier of memories for the outgoing class of 2021!!
