Welcome to the IIT Bombay Dean Alumni and Corporate Relations

Our key objective is to nurture and strengthen the Institute’s bond with its alumni community, business corporations and philanthropists. These groups are the key stakeholders in IIT Bombay’s journey of excellence. We encourage the involvement and participation of these entities in the Institute’s strategic initiatives. These include setting up world class research and academics in emerging areas of science and technology, building world class infrastructure, improving faculty value proposition, strengthening the entrepreneurship ecosystem, and contributing to the society.
