Despite being divided between disparate years, courses, cities we are bound by the legacy of our Alma Mater, NIFT. The Association of NIFT Alumni has been formed for us to reconnect and network on a common platform, rekindle old memories, celebrate achievements, share our collective wisdom, and revitalize the NIFT-Alumni-Industry-Government linkages.

YEARS OF ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE
I want to reconnect and bond with NIFTians across the world. I want the alumni association to rejuvenate and strengthen the alma mater through internships, training, jobs, mentoring and rekindle the faith of industry (which includes us as well) in NIFT!
Through the Alumni Association, I want to connect with every member and see how we can help each other, collectively give back something to our Alma Mater, and to leverage on my knowledge for opening new doors for business and hiring opportunities. I would like the Association to influence critical policy, influence curriculum, promote fashion & textile education, contribute time and energy to the younger generation and students, and to promote corporate social responsibility by influencing industry leaders among us.
I’m proud to be an alumna of one of India’s first fashion institutes and to be part of a select group of trained professionals that entered the industry at a time when it was at a fairly nascent stage.
NIFT Alumni Association is a great way to connect with old friends, network, gather information informally, find business opportunities and lobby for the industry.
The NIFT Alumni Association will provide us a platform to keep in touch and benefit from the vast human resources of the alumni for mutual benefit.
very happy and proud to be associated with the NIFT Alumni Association. It creates a platform for the alumni to broaden their horizons by being connected with everyone. More importantly, it can help in expanding the network to different years’ batches to build in innovation and dynamism in the industry.
The NIFT Alumni are collectively potentially the most powerful, influential body in the industry, and being part of this connected network one of the most powerful enablers in a career and in life – the connections offer the possibility of capabilities, knowledge and openings that not even the most competent individual could build solely on their own.
My network for the longest time was limited to a batch above and below ours. However with the Alumni platform , I am connected to all batches across all courses. This is phenomenal! Being a headhunter, I benefit directly from this huge network. Importantly, this network is not only large but extremely rich. We are a body large enough to make policy recommendations to the govt. There is immense exchange of knowledge and solutions on a regular basis. I find that very engaging. This knowledge and experience share is the most compelling reason for me to participate in this forum/ association.
The NIFT Alumni Association will be a platform to exchange views, information and ideas. I expect the Alumni to play a major role in the development of the textile and clothing business in the nation.
NIFT alumni comprise of highly successful professionals who can create meaningful ways of working together, and the Alumni association promises to become an excellent way to build, connect and empower a passionate community.
