HYDERABAD: Alumnis of the Indian School of Business (ISB) in different parts of the world can now stay in touch with their alma mater now, thanks to the ISB Rocks app. The app was launched by member of parliament Dr Shashi Tharoor at ‘Solstice’, the ISB annual alumni reunion at the Hyderabad campus recently.

‘ISB Rocks’ is designed to connect 6200 plus ISB alumni with each other and the school anytime, anywhere. Every year, during solstice, ISB alumni across all batches along with their families are invited to reconnect with their classmates and alma mater and relive their days on campus as a student.

Addressing ISB alumni and the current class on the occasion, Dr Shashi Tharoor said, “More and more business graduates take up unconventional jobs and ventures and create a strong entrepreneurial ecosystem. Your education should give you a better understanding of not just markets but a country as a whole. Education is not a socioeconomic issue but an issue of national security. Ethics matter. Politics also needs good managers and good leaders for good governance. Be the change you wish to see. You don’t see the change without quality. Change yourself to change the world.”

This mobile app will also help ISB students, present and past, to connect with other alumni in their vicinity whether in a new country or city, using GPS locaters on smartphones. It will also help alumni to post jobs and get updates on job posting. The app is currently available on android for testing. It will be launched on iOS and Blackberry platforms soon. Speaking at the launch, Ajit Rangnekar, dean, ISB, said, “For a young B-School like ours, it is important for all of us to be connected at all times. I am happy that ISB Rocks now makes this easy at the click of a button”.
