Milaap ’14, the fifth Alumni Meet @ JSB, was organized on Feb 22 & 23, 2014, at Padmam Auditorium. These two days served as an opening for rejuvenation, renovation and reminiscence for the JSB alumni and students.
On Feb 22, alumni from the 2004 to 2011 Batches were invited. The day started with a screening of the activities that had happened during the last decade. The alumni were reminded of those wonderful moments they had with their friends.
During the forenoon and afternoon sessions, workshops were organized, wherein the alumni made sure they shared their corporate experiences with the current batches of students. It was a very insightful session, with workshops on various sectors like Retail, Finance, Banking, Service, Advertising and Social Networking. Besides these, there were also smaller sessions on Soft Skills and Interview Techniques. These workshops, not only benefitted the current batches of students, but also brought to fore how much the alumni had progressed in their career!
On the first day, Milaap ’14 team unveiled the Inaugural issue of the bi-annual Alumni magazine, christened, JSB Connect.
In the evening, a pleasant entertainment programme was arranged, and the alumni participated in all of them with great enthusiasm.
Feb 23, 2014, the second day of Milaap’14, saw the current batches of students warmly welcoming the alumni of the 2012 & 2013 batches. The day was peppered with formal and informal interactions between the students and the alumni. Such interactions helped the students to appreciate and understand the nuances of an entry-level career in a variety of verticals. There were many stimulating games and activities, and the alumni totally felt at home. The second day ended with a cultural extravaganza.
An expo, featuring the teams from ConSight and E-node, was organized on both the days, and the alumni found these new experiments worthy and interesting. The Alumni also provided feedback on this expo, and gave suggestions to makes these initiatives by the students, more useful.
On both the days, a healthy and sumptuous lunch and dinner were served. The alumni were also very glad to meet their teachers at JSB, and recount those moments they had in their classrooms.
In all, the alumni looked forward to mentoring a new batch of students next year. It was their privilege to give back to their Alma Mater.
