Alumni City Connect- An Amalgamation of all meets

It’s always a unique feeling walking down the paths travelled in the past, a nostalgia, a flashback, a glimpse to some of the best days of your life. As they say having been there, having done that before; a feeling that can be best felt when people from same old days meet. To bring back those best days, those unique memories of cut to cut class room schedules, last minute assignment submissions, discussing professor’s stories while eating in the mess, those chai’s at the night mess while working out on case studies together and the moments of euphoria at college fests, to name a few, we recently organized the most anticipated Alumni Meet for IIT Kanpur’s MBA fraternity who are making IITK’s flag rise high and steady in the industrial and entrepreneur world out there.

To bring the idea of City Connect Meet, as we called it, into reality, we at the Department of Industrial Management and Engineering spent sleepless nights and busy days to contact and schedule regular meets with the Alumni spread in various cities. We were to cover four major cities, connect with numerous Alumni and convince them for the City Connect at the same time. We were as if performing a big synchronizing drives splitingour teams for this very purpose for the meet in Delhi, Pune, Mumbai and Bangalore.

And then we see our efforts pay off. The Alumni City Meet in all the four cities witnessed a wonderful footfall, with active involvement of the alumni, and a number of commendable suggestions and insights. Great conviviality was seen in the meet with old students reliving their memories, and current students interacting with them. The gathering was also briefed through a presentation about some major agendas like Capstone Project, Curriculum, Placements, Avant Garde, and Alum Connect meets. The meet ended with an emotional adieu, a greeting card as token of our appreciation, and a promise to further strengthen this relationship with alums and to organize City Connect Meet year on year basis.

An Introduction to the batch of 2019-21

It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change." A new zeal, vigour, and an unquenchable thirst for proving oneself is what describes MBA batch of 2019-21. 52 of us set foot on the pavement of a new journey and needless to say it has been unprecedented. Be it the early morning presentations, the stark midnight deadlines, or the never-ending case studies covering the gamut of concepts and context, each one of these activities can vouch for it. It has hardly been a month, yet the batch has acclimatized well with the life of one the most coveted institutes in the country, IIT Kanpur.
For most of us, this is the desired path, and for the rest, it is an opportunity to relive their school days. Since we are in a place that has no norm and instead offers endless diversity, there will always be something that entertains and challenges us. It is time we took this opportunity to build a lasting relationship with our c…

Mr Vikash Kumar, Chief Digital Officer at Trident Group India Ltd, visited the IME department at IIT Kanpur along with his colleague Mr Mohit Goel, GM at Digital Trident, on the 3rd of September, 2016.

He started with defining digital marketing as a medium that provides two way flow of information or communication on world wide web. He emphasized on how the rapidly changing world of digital marketing has made textbook knowledge insufficient, and further emphasized the importance of learning on the job, staying unique, and believing in o…
