Alumni Speak

IILM Graduate School of Management, with legacy of 20 years, maintains a close relationship with its alumni and ensures their active participation in the functioning of their Alma matter. The Institute holds the Alumni Association comprised of elected Alumni, a faculty coordinator and student representatives from the current batch which helps in the career growth of students through active participation. The Institute organizes diverse events round the year including seminars and workshops, and training programmes to keep abreast of current happenings in the business world.

The Alumni Association has been able to come up with alumni network for ‘mentorship programme’ enabling our current students to know their seniors and learn from their wisdom and experiences. To encourage the same flow of enthusiasm among Institute, alumni and present batches, the association was promoted through a Alumni Connect organized in the campus.

The Alumni Connect marking the first strong interaction between the invited guest and the batch 2013 - 14 was organized on 06th September, 2013 for PGDM students.

Mr. Ashish Sharma from the batch of 2008 -10, currently working with Copal Partners as Analyst interacted with the students.

The session was focused to throw light on choosing the correct career option. He discussed about the importance of Summer Internship and apt methodology to choose electives among varied options. He further emphasized on the skills required for different domains and how to groom oneself so to fit the industry requisites. Mr. Ashish also mentioned the importance of networking and shared his personal experiences on the same. 

As throughout the journey, the session organized by the Institute was a replication of vigour revival for all students. The session also invited the optimistic opinions about the alumni mentorship program, which is a co-pillar to strong foundation of Mentoring Program at IILM.

The two hours of enlightenment was followed by alumni’s initiative to be an active facilitator for placements and workshops.

Believe, IILM redesigns its shelves each year to propel young minds to paint the town red.

Aplomb, there to reach!!!!!!

"Thinking of an Exception is IGSM!! A place where knowledge echoes among students’ minds, a place where a bird achieves its height higher than others. Same way I learnt from my peers, shared everything I could, pampered teachers in whatever way I could, worked in Finance (ANALYSTS) club as hard as I could and enriched myself with everything be it studies or overall behavior as much as I could.

In brief, approach is practical, thinking is limitless and actions are visible- what describes IGSM well.

"My experience with IILM-GSM was very enriching and knowledgeable. I have learned ABC of Management from IILM only which is helping me in my work in every way. The faculty approach in studies is practical oriented and they always support me in my every step.

I think this is the place where you can learn a lot if you have spark in you for learning and you can build your foundation for your bright and successive career and last but not least you can create a strong knowledge hub for your upcoming future."

"I carry pleasant memories of my days in IILM. The faculty lectures used to be beyond classroom timings. Importantly the corporate life experiences, anecdotes shared by senior professors are fond memories and they have helped big time in understanding the practical realities of Corporate World well before I entered. The importance of which can be gauged from the fact that even after 8 years, I am still carrying their notes.

I got campus placement in Daewoo Motors for marketing. After one year, I joined Standard Chartered Bank as Relationship Manager for Consumer Banking in Assets. After working for 4 years in Asset section, I switched over to liabilities section"

"IILM helped me put my strengths and energies on the right path under able guidance of Professors who helped me in my 1st ever corporate interface at Reckitt and Colman under the industry internship and DSS Mobile for my summer internship.  After my passing out I joined the Telecom Industry (DSS) and move ahead in life in these 13 odd years, but always giving back to my B school in some way has been there in my mind.  I recently got a chance to show my gratitude to IILM, when I was invited as a guest speaker; the whole episode was nostalgic and interaction with current batches was fantastic and an eye opener too."
