An alumnus at IILM is a very integral part of its alma mater. At IILM we try to engage Alumni in as many activities as possible. Alumni Engagement is dedicated to bringing together the alumni community on a common platform to build another channel of personal and professional support to members. Apart from serving as a base for information about the alumni, it initiates programs and organizes events important to alumni and their alma mater.
Highly experienced alumni are invited to campus to share their experience with our students and faculty members. Such activities provide our students a chance to demonstrate their leadership competencies. To strengthen alumni engagement, one alumni member is invited to campus every week to interact with our students either formally through classroom lectures or informally over lunch or dinner at campus. This is an initiative taken by the Institute where each student gets an alumni mentor based upon their area of specialization or the sector where they would like to work. It is through the experiences of the mentors that the student learns a lot. The alumni mentor helps the student in their personal and professional development and the student gets an opportunity to gain knowledge and perspective of an organization and its culture.
In the past, we have had the Vice President of Finalytics Consultancy who came and interacted with our students and absorbed them in his company for final placement. Similarly, we had the Product Head of Wizzcare who again took a session with our students and gave them opportunities to work in his company through live projects and summer internships. We have had eminent speakers from companies like Wipro, PWC, ITC, Xerox, Deloitte, GE India etc who not just interacted with ours students but are also mentoring them.
