Alumni speak is one of the most significant initiatives taken by FORE Alumni Network through which we aim to connect our distinguished alumni with the students of our college and encourage them to have an interaction with the alumni and gain some insights on how world resides in the corporate culture. The motive is to make the students aware of the journey from MBA to the corporate world and help them solve their queries through an interactive session.
