IIM Indore hosted its 20 year and 15 year Alumni Reunion on February 07-09, 2020 and saw a cheerful and enthusiastic participation of the alumni from Batch 2005 and 2000. These alumni are now working in diverse fields at senior positions. The event gave them an opportunity to reminisce of their old times, and for the current participants to interact with the alumni and gain wisdom. An informal ‘Bonfire, BBQ & Karaoke’ night was arranged on the first day, during which the alumni got a chance to unwind on campus while catching up with their old peers.
The inaugural ceremony was held on the second day with the lighting of the lamp by the alumni along with Professor Keyur Thaker, Alumni Relations Chair. This was followed by a briefing on the significant strides made by IIM Indore in the last few years. The institute stood 5th in the NIRF rankings announced by MHRD, Government of India last year. IIM Indore is also the 2nd IIM to have gained the ‘Triple Crown’ – a combination of 3 prestigious accreditations granted by the largest b-school accreditation agencies globally. This is a feat achieved by less than one percent of business schools in the world. This was followed by fun outbound activities arranged for the alumni who played sports like cricket and table tennis.
The third and the last day of the reunion took off with a sweet start with a cake cutting ceremony to celebrate this reunion of the IIM Indore family at home. In the faculty-alumni brunch that followed conversations hit off as stories and anecdotes were shared. The 3-day event was deemed to be a huge success in terms of boosting engagement with the institute’s vast alumni-network.
