Dear Friend,

Greetings from IIT Bombay!

The famous poet T. S. Eliot once wrote, “What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.”

I am writing this email to inform you that my journey as the Dean of Alumni Iand Corporate Relations at IIT Bombay has come to an end. I shall be commencing a new chapter in my professional life as the Director of IIT Indore. While I am elated to step into the new role, leaving behind the IIT Bombay family will be extremely difficult.

Greetings Alumni!

We have a wonderful opportunity for the Institute and its alumni to be engaged in each other’s progress and also be of support to each other during times of need.

To ensure that we are connected, we need you, our alumni, to update your contact information at IIT Bombay’s online portal.

The Institute has started an initiative called ‘Stay Connected‘, which will help us stay in touch and engage with all of you on an ongoing basis. It will also help us apprise you of the latest news, activities, initiatives and events happening at the Institute, as well as enable us to hear back from you as well.

Learn more about this endeavour from two of our beloved alumni members.

Yash Mandhana

There are no shortcuts to success, and our student Yash Mandhana’s hard work and dedication are testimony to that. Yash Mandhana topped CAT 2021 by scoring 99.99 percentile in his first attempt by repeatedly solving multiple mock tests. In our recent conversation, he shares how he accomplished this incredible milestone and gives tips on how others can replicate his success.

Q: You’re studying to be a mechanical engineer at IITB and have successfully completed internships and projects in your core field; what made you change tracks and try for an MBA?
Yash: I learned and experienced the technical aspect of an enterprise during my undergraduate years at IIT Bombay. However, I always had the urge to understand the business elements and in-depth functioning of a company. I realised that pursuing an MBA will help me gain the desired expertise and help me navigate my future endeavours.
