All the recent events in IoBM such as Jashan e Baharan, the Public talk by Imran Khan had been arranged by the society members themselves.[7]

Membership in professional bodies[edit]

IoBM is an active member of the following international and national professional bodies.

Entreprenuership Management Excellence Center[edit]

The Entrepreneurship & Management Excellence Center (EMEC), the executive Education Wing of IoBM, is a prized product of its successful evolution as a top-rated business and management school. EMEC follows an immersive approach to service excellence, whether customized or generic, aimed at organizational change. It provides consultancy to organizations on the development and implementation of effective strategies. Its training programs are designed with excellence and rigor to make every organization’s experience a valuable one.[9]

IoBM Alumni Association[edit]

Alumni associations aren't just about jobs and recruiting new students. When you were a student at your university, you were part of a community that offered all sorts of exciting perks – free concerts, student discounts, poetry readings, art exhibits, library access, sporting events, and numerous other things that made your university unique and dynamic. And university alumni associations understand that even after graduation, many students continue to feel connected to their university, or associate a part of their identity with the institution. Creating an engaged, supportive alumni network is crucial to an institution’s success. If communication stops once graduates leave an institution, their understanding of the university will become stale. Instead, they should be kept informed so they can remain engaged and keep abreast on the progress of the university.
