ALUMNI

Alumni are those founding pillars which form the back bone of any Institute. They not only depict a picture about the past but light the way for the present and the future batches. Over the years DoMS, IIT Madras has produced successful managers who have not only adapted themselves in different roles across various domains and organizations, but also written their own success stories as entrepreneurs.

"Best college life. The independence given to scholars is something that I valued  the most."
Lije George (MS Scholar, 2017)
Kishore Kumar Ramakrishnan (MS Scholar, 2016)

"My days at IIT Madras have been my career defining moment. I take pride in being the first M.S. scholar who graduated under the guidance of my guide, way back in 2002. Since then there is no turning back, as it is at this institute where I picked up the ropes in finance and derivatives in particular and have been fortunate enough to continue working in this domain for the last 15+ years. I thank the professors and the entire department for accepting me as a research scholar which helped me to discover my passion in finance and derivatives."

Kishore Kumar Ramakrishnan (MS Scholar, 2016) • Head, Capital Markets Consulting - Asia at Pricewaterhouse Coopers [PwC], Firm-wide Director (Non-equity Partner), Financial Services Advisory, Hong Kong
"Working in the research lab, with some excellent colleagues, was a fun experience. We used to have stimulating discussions on the issues ranging from Econometrics, Political Economy, to Indian research scenario, to the webs of publications. Guidance from my guide and professors from different functional areas of management, had always been available in abundance, both in the form of formal seminar discussions and casual interactions over ‘tumblers’ or cups of coffee at CCD/Tiffany’s round the corner."

All these aspects of DoMS, IITM have made me better-rounded as a person. The experiences were truly irreplaceable."

"At IITM, we get the opportunity to study with a variety of students-engineering undergraduates, post-graduates, research scholars and PhD's, which gave us a wider perspective in imbibing and solving management problems and research issues. For me as a research scholar the most awesome research and learning experience has been with my guide, who is probably the one teacher who kept me most involved in research at DoMS. Her disciplined research methodology is in a way addictive and keeps you engrossed. Moreover, excellent green ambience infrastructure, Research Park, extraordinary library (data base) support, thought provoking management seminars, international guest speakers...etc, all deliver a very good exposure to the management scholars."
