Institute of Management Research and Development had an informal Alumni Association which was working effectively since 1999. Due to the excellent rapport shared by our faculties with alumni we are able to make a strong bonding and network between alumni and institute. Many of them are willing to 'Give-Back' to their alma-mater as a sign of their gratitude and affinity towards the institution in the format of their knowledge and skills that they have learned in this huge IT world.
This informal Alumni Association with the different suggestions by alumni has transformed to formal registered Alumni Association in the year 2017 with registration no: Dhule/0000037/2018 via the Act 1860(XXI of 1860).
