Corporate Interactions


Throughout the year guest lectures are organized,where corporates and alumni are invited to share their experience and knowledge with the students.Experts in various fields give their views on the latest happenings of the corporate world. These lectures are an excellent platform for the students to interact with their industry idols and gain from their immense experience. It also facilitates the corporate stalwarts to gauge the quality of students at SIMSREE

SIMSREE’s legacy is largely defined by the large network of Alumni working in diverse fields and at influential positions. Hence, the Alumni Committee has taken a step forward to increase alumni-student interaction by creating a completely new avenue ‘Coffee with Alumni’.

It is a session of alumni-student interaction over a cup of coffee. Srudents get an opportunity to meet senior alumni and get inspired by their thoughts and views. During the session, the students can ask queries, get their views validated and spend time in a meaningful conversation. This initiative was started with the aim that students get firsrt hand practical experience from real life and from an industry perspective.
