PARADIGM – Annual Alumni(MBA-Day) Reunion 2014
With New Year came the end of an eternal wait for the students of IISWBM, as PARADIGM,
the much awaited event of the year was scheduled on January 3rd, 2015. PARADIGM
’14 in association with The Telegraph is the annual alumni meet of the year.
The evening started with the inauguration of the Annual Alumni magazine Eclat Vol
II by the Dean Prof. K.M.Agarwal and for the first time in the history of IISWBM,
the Eclat magazine was published in paperback format.
The theme for this year’s meet was Carnival and the college premises were completely
transformed with decorations related to the theme. Our prestigious alumni dating
back from1953, from all sectors of the corporate world, had joined us for the fun
filled evening. A formal felicitation program inaugurated the event and soon the
mood was turned into that of fun and frolic as the games that had been organised
for them started. The alumni were made to reminisce their days at the Institute
and some of them really came up with many such fond memories. In fact they were
ecstatic to return back to their alma mater after long. The walls of the Institute
were echoing with song, laughter and enjoyment, and the atmosphere was heavy with
the feeling of nostalgia.
The current students of the Institute too enjoyed a lot, as they being the managers
of tomorrow took back a lot from those already established in the corporate world.
Their vast array of experiences and wisdom was passed on to the current generation.
Finally the event came to an end at the stroke of midnight, as wait for another
year began that instant.
CONFAB- Annual Alumni(MHRM) Reunion 2014
The annual reunion saw alumni from all decades joining together on December 20,
2014 at Trincas Banquet Hall. The theme was “Tracing our roots”. It provided a good
chance to meet up, reconnect to their Alma Mater and reminisce in an informal setting.
The programme started with our alumni visiting the college. A quiz session was conducted
to test how much our alumni still remember about their college and they scored really
well. An interactive session took place where the seniors shared with the juniors
about how their two years at the university had an impact on them. It was delightful
to know about some of the jokes, happy moments that our seniors had during their
days in the college. Then we shifted to Trincas banquet hall where welcome drinks
were served with the music playing in the background. The alumni along with the
current students enjoyed a light dance moment with the music. After that they enjoyed
a sit down and a bite to eat.
At the end of the day, the reunion was not about discussing the personal list of
accomplishments and achievements. It gave a scope to walk down the memory lane and
realise how those two years in the college shaped their lives – not just through
the classes they took but also through the friends they made. The hearty conversations
were not something one would find on facebook status updates. It was possible only
for our alumni taking their time out and giving us some valuable inputs. We are
grateful to them and hope CONFAB continues to be such a success in the future.
