Across the globe, LIBA alumni come together to share their expertise, celebrate, and give back to their alma mater. This culture of LIBA stems from the Ignatian value, ‘Cura Personalis’ (Care of the individual).
LIBA, Alumni Relations, organized the Mumbai Chapter Meet on the 18th of December 2021, virtually. The event started by invoking God’s blessings. Rev. Fr. C. Joe Arun, Director, LIBA, and Prof. Lakshmi Narayanan, Dean, Academics along with Mr. Michael Ashof, President, Mumbai Chapter, jointly inaugurated the event by e-watering the plant portraying the growth and prosperity of the relationship between the Alumni and LIBA.
Dr. Aiswarya, Chair, Alumni Relations welcomed the participants and proudly escorted the Alumni on a virtual tour of the new LIBA building. Fr. Director highlighted, how LIBA as an institution has grown, how its learning and teaching methods are constantly evolving to meet the needs of the corporate environment. After this, Michael Ashof, president of the Mumbai chapter, shared his experiences at LIBA. Dr Sunil Vakayil, Chair-Management Development Centre, LIBA and Dr Aravind Kumaran, Chair-Placement & Training, LIBA took the opportunity in extending a call for support from the Alumni in terms of training, placement, exchange of thoughts and knowledge sharing.
The session of experience sharing was nostalgic as the alumni reminisced their professors and days in LIBA with a special mention to the long hours spent in the library. The meeting ended with a hope that the next Annual meet will be held in the sprawling campus in all its pomp and glory.
