He explained the importance of alumni associations in ensuring that students maintain both a professional and an emotional connection to their college. Former students' professional knowledge and expertise may be used to benefit the current students. Each alumnus was asked to share their experiences with the current batch of students, as doing so would help to build up their confidence and shape their skill sets in accordance with industry expectations.

Even so, there is a strong professional bond between alumni and their alma mater.  Also mentioned was the upcoming preparation of a big offline alumni association meeting by the college and alumni associations. Additionally, he gave the Alumni the assurance that one Alumni meeting would be held each month. In order to build a strong alumni network, even IIBS is working on an application for the alumni association that will be released right away. He said that an institution's reputation was based not just on its leadership and personnel, but also on the accomplishments and growth of its students.

A keynote speech was given by Prof. NSR Murthy. He was delighted with the enthusiastic response from the alumni.
