IBS Alumni Federation is a membership organization which has a diverse and rich history of bringing alumni together to support the institute, its students and each other.
Alumni and students interaction and mentor-ship is encouraged all year round at IBS to strengthen the bond between current students and the alumni. As mentors, IBS Alumni serve as exemplary examples for the men-tees, the current student to have a clear understanding of their corporate life ahead. The alumni regularly participate in taking knowledge sharing sessions to share their experiences in the corporate world into the classroom for the students. The student’s benefits from this session as they are able to appreciate the concepts learnt in the classroom put into practices in the real world when the alumni take such session.
Various workshop and seminars are conducted by the alumni to further augment student’s development at IBS. Some of the workshops conducted regularly include Microsoft excel training workshops, seminars on personal finance, stock market investments, digital marketing, and entrepreneurship to name a few. The students are groomed to be a holistic business professional – to learn beyond the prescribed.
