School of HR Student Alumni Committee

School of HR Alumni Committee primarily works on maintaining the relationship with the esteemed Alumni of the institute. The key focus is to engage with Alumni on various levels in order to develop and strengthen the bond with Alumni. The Committee takes multiple initiatives and conducts various events throughout the year to keep continuous associations with the Alumni of the institute. The committee has taken a few steps ahead in the last academic year to achieve its mission and vision by conducting various events. The major events for the Academic year, 2019-20, were Tathagat ’19, LeadX ’19 and the Alumni Homecoming. Along with that, the committee had collaborated with Dean’s office on two major events – HR Symposium ’19 and Leadership talk by Ms. Sunita Rout, and with XIMAHR during Kshitij ’19. The committee also conducted regular KYA (Know Your Alumni) sessions with revered alumni like Mr. Ayaskant Sarangi, Mr. Magesh M S, Mr. Ankush Arora and Mr. Dhritiman Indranil. Impromptu Leadership talks had also been conducted, featuring Alumni, who had visited the campus in the academic year.
