Message from Chairman

Greetings from the Alumni and the International Relations Committee!


The last year has been challenging as we try to get used to the ‘new normal.’ We sincerely hope that all our esteemed external collaborators and our alums community have successfully overcome the challenges posed by the pandemic. We wish good health to our stakeholders and their near and dear ones.

Alumni and International Relations Committee at IIM Shillong constantly endeavors to reach out to its alums and partner institutions across the globe. IIM Shillong has moved to its new lush green campus surrounded by woods of pine trees. We invite our alums and partners to visit the new campus as IIM Shillong embarks on a new journey while keeping the inherent core values intact.

We always believe in nurturing symbiotic relationships with our stakeholders. Our alum base crossed 2667 in 2023, and we, as an institution, are proud of our alums who have been our brand ambassadors. Many of our alumni have assumed strategic and leadership positions in various organizations in several sectors, which have catapulted IIM Shillong to newer heights. The synergy of our relationship has been mutually beneficial. IIM Shillong has been making steady progress toward becoming a world-class institution. Recent NIRF 2021 report ranks IIM Shillong at 23rd position in the country, a significant improvement in its ranking, which all stakeholders are proud of.

On the International Relations front, the Institute has been making renewed efforts to forge a symbiotic relationship with reputed management institutes across the globe. Such a relationship will significantly benefit the Institute’s students and alums. The joint study, collaborative programs, and student and faculty exchanges have been the committee’s focus.

The collaborative efforts of the Institute, along with the support and well wishes of its alums and partner institutes, will help IIM Shillong in its journey to emerge as a world-class management institution.

Let’s keep nurturing the pine connect!

Warm Regards,
Dr. Parijat Upadhyay
