Pan-IIM Alumni Meet in Singapore

Alumni Associations of the various IIM’s are coming together to organize the IIMPact Singapore Signature Series. The first event in this series is called "Access India - The Indian Professional in Singapore". This event is happening today (25th August) and the keynote speaker is Mr. Tharman Shanmugaratnam (Education Minister). This event will also have a Panel Discussion and the panel comprises of some senior IIM Alumni and the Indian High Commissioner. The Singapore Government wants to build a good relationship with the Indian educational institutes and these kind of events will help in furthering the cause.

If the current developments are any indication, more such pan-IIM events are likely to take place across the globe. The first one happened in Bay Area sometime in June 2005.

Here is a short write-up about the event from Universitas 21 Global website:

  • Hey, I was thinking of trying to achieve something like this in sydney... since not many IIMB alumni are here, there was an idea to have a pan-IIM event so that at least decent participation would be there... lets see how far we can take it

  • Kaps, wish I knew the words 'splogs' when I wrote my rant (19th Aug) about horrid spam comments I was getting. Someone suggested the verification option and I am using it now. Sploggers will surely find their way around that if we don't fight it in every way. Some people and their computers are soooo jobless!!!!

    Enjoy the IIM gettogether!

  • @Nirav,
    More of the pan-IIM participation...it is also the opportunity to interact with the Indian High Commissioner and the Education Minister that makes this event quite special

    @Maverick,
    They had a pan-IIM golf event in B'lore sometime back. I'm sure more such events wud take place across the globe.

    @Prakash,
    S'pore attracts talent from all parts of the globe and hence doesn't mean that any such particular nationality wud b preferred over the other.
