It is not merely a cliché to say Alumni are the calling card for an academic institution. As IGIDR alumni you are all in lead roles in academics and industry, both India and abroad, in equal measure. You are among the first to create the financial services sector job openings for economists and subsequently in extending it to other sectors as well. Time is ripe to celebrate all of you and your achievements at your alma mater. At a time of sweeping changes across the academic and industry canvas of the world, IGIDR too is at the crossroad. We are in need of your critical inputs from your experience at another academic institution or from the vantage point of your industry.

Towards that goal, we are organizing the Inaugural IGIDR Alumni Conference during May 10 to 12, 2023 at IGIDR and do sincerely hope to have a role for all of you, either as paper presenters or session organizers. Please write to us which role you would prefer along with the details. For example, if you would like to organize a specific session not exceeding ninety minutes, please send us your proposal indicating the content and potential alumni participants. Alternatively, if you have a paper to present, please send the full paper. You could also propose themes for round table discussions. As this is the first of its kind that we are attempting at a relatively short notice, we seek your understanding that some of the roles would be on invitation basis.

We have sent an email to all Alumni with a link to a Google Form, to which you are requested to reply by April 23, 2023.

All correspondence should be addressed to alumniconf2023@igidr.ac.in and we look forward to seeing all of you at IGIDR during May 10 to 12, 2023.
