Encore West 2016
Symbiosis Institute of Business Management – Pune has been a pioneering institute in the field of business studies since 1978 and prides itself in its ability to create distinguished and highly capable business leaders. The institute considers its alumni as ambassadors of its high ideals. A strong relationship is sought to be established with alumni to create a vibrant network which aids in institution building. In order to facilitate this, Encore is an event organized by SIBM Pune to engage with its alumni. It combines the formal setting of an alumni meet with the informal environment of a batch reunion to forge strong bonds. Unlike reunions and alumni events, it involves attendees from every batch of SIBM Pune leading to an enthralling experience.
Encore West 2016 was organized at the JW Marriott Sahar, Mumbai on 24th September 2016 and was attended by alumni from various batches spanning from 1980 to 2016. The event was graced by the Director of SIBM Pune- Dr. R Raman and Deputy Director- Dr. Vinod Shastri. Several games and engagement strategies were arranged by the Alumni Team to make the event a memorable one. The event started with the Encore West promotional video, the teaser to the main event which was launched on social media. This was followed by the factual video for the alumni, demonstrating the activities that happen in SIBM today. The event also marked the first anniversary of the SIBM Alumni Portal which has 2616 alumni currently registered.
