Alumni Participation in Undergraduate Interview Panel, Spring 2015

 

IBA recently hosted the BBA/BBA-Entrepreneurship Panel interviews for the spring intake 2015 conducted by the IBA testing department on the 21st and 22nd March.

Senior Alumni (graduating batch 2005 and above) were requested to be a part of this important interview process. The future prestige of this Institution depends on the selection of the right candidates who will eventually become brand ambassadors of IBA in their own right and no one is a better judge for the qualities that make up an IBA student than the Alumni themselves. The response of the Alumni was heartening, with many sending their deep regrets about their unavailability due to being located out of Pakistan or out of the city.

Even at a relatively short notice, around 25 Alumni registered to participate in the interview panel on the 21st March. The alumni were facilitated by the Alumni department with regards to communication and security clearances on the interview day and they had a pleasant time returning to their alma mater.

In the feedback gathered after the process was over, the alumni had positive remarks to share:

 

 

Kashif Quadri, Director Quadri Group, Alumnus of year 2000
“It was basically a heartwarming and nostalgic experience as I visited IBA Uni Campus after a long time.
I was really impressed by the quality of interviewees which reflects that IBA test still remains a good judge of students credentials.”

Akif Alam Khan, Assistant Manager Chevron Pakistan Limited, Alumnus of year 2000
“It was really a good experience to interact with young students and listen to their innovative ideas.”

The alumni also shared their willingness to be a part of future events, and suggested that the “ alumni network should be tapped for business case studies, reports or being part of visiting faculty” (Zeeshan Bhayani, Regional Manager, Mobilink, Alumnus of year 2002).
