BIM Distinguished Alumnus Awards
Dear BIM Alumni,
Greetings from Bharathidasan Institute of Management, Trichy!
BIM prides itself on its strong alumni base. Today they are active partners in BIM’s growth journey by being in our Academic Council and Board of Studies and supporting academic delivery as guest speakers and visiting scholars. BIM alumni network is a strong network of 4000+ alumni, many of them being CXOs, who are making a significant contribution to industry and society across the globe. Besides, we also have several alumni who are successful entrepreneurs and academics in India and abroad.
As BIM embarks on a new growth trajectory, it seeks to leverage the emotional and intellectual capital of its alumni to realize the institute’s vision. BIM alumni are a great strength for us. They have an incredible passion for their alma mater.
The institute will present BIM Distinguished Alumnus Awards (subject to the nominations available and selection by the Jury) on BIM Foundation Day, celebrated on August 16. We are happy to share that BIM introduced BIM Distinguished Alumni Awards (DAAs) effective from 2022. Mr T R Ramachandran from BIM4 batch was conferred the first BIM DAA – 2022. He currently serves as Senior Vice President – Head of Products and Solutions, Asia Pacific based in Singapore.
Through this award, we endeavour to celebrate and recognize the achievements of our alumni across the globe in various spheres – Industry, Public Policy, Entrepreneurship, Academics and other walks of life.
