Director's Message

Dear Lakers,

Alumni of institutions are the roving ambassadors of that institution and alumni build institutions into great brands. Great Lakes is no exception. From about 130 in 2006, today we boast of a strength of 6000 + full time graduates almost on par with IIMs A, B & C. Our alumni network is spread over all the continents both in corporate and academia. We also now have a Great Lakes Institute of Management Alumni Association that is a registered body with close to 10 chapters in India and overseas. Alumni chapters meet on a regular basis but atleast once a quarter. Apart from India we have had alumni meets in North America, Europe and Middle East. Our Alumni have a made a name for themselves be it a PE Fund, start up , Agro Tech, Fintech, photography or a standup comedy that has gone a long way in accreditations such as AMBA, SAQS and also made it possible that we are in top 10 of various B School rankings . Now that we have more than threshold numbers, it is time for the alumni to build this connect further into an emotional one and give back to the alma mater. I appeal to Great Lakers to collaborate with Great Lakes in Research, building Case Studies , Placement , corporate connect, Training programs besides creating scholarships and faculty chairs so that Great Lakes moves from success to substance.
