CUK Alumni Association (CUKAA)

Strong Alumni Network is an asset of any University. CUK has started building alumni network through departmental level as well as at University level. As CUK is very young and budding University we made beginning to have alumni association. University has been started in 2009 with MA in English and M.Phil in Kannada, English, Psychology and Economics. From 2010-11 academic year onwards MBA, M.Com, Geography, Kannada were started. First batch of English passed out in the year 2011 and other courses in the year 2012. Some department like Department of Business Studies, Geography, Geology, English, Hindi and Department of Kannada are in the process of having formally established alumni association. However, some departments already have Facebook and WhatsApp groups of their alumni network. Now we have taken an initiative to have formally establish an alumni associations at every department and University level. These departments have organized alumni meetings and discussion to help them in building stronger alumni network. The main objectives of the Alumni Association are;

  • To bridge the gap between industry/society and academia
  • To bring the practical experience to the classrooms through interaction with alumni
  • To get inputs from alumni to make curriculum more contemporary and practical in nature
  • To help our students to get better placement and career guidance
  • To make alumni to feel good being part of greater network

Every department of the University and Alumni Association at university level and every member of alumni association will work towards achieving these objectives. To build stronger bond and network with the Alumni it is planned to have exclusive facebook page for CUKAA and work is under process. Alumni have to register in this facebook page and they will get username and password same can be used to login the network. This will help university and alumni to be in regular touch and share their ideas and views for the development of the university and achieve the above mentioned objectives

CUK Management Students Forum....An Alumni Network

The idea of having alumni association at the Department of Business Studies has conceived in the year 2013 after first two batches were out to the industry. The students of 2012-14 batch of MBA have contributed required amount towards the creation of alumni association and conduct of various activities under this banner. Faculties and students together have framed the Bylaws of the CUK Management Students Forum we have submitted the application form with required documents to the Registrar of Societies, Kalaburagi and awaiting for the registration certificate. In 2014 a bank account with Canara Bank CUK Campus branch was opened in the name of CUK Management Forum. Since 2014 whatever amount alumni have contributed willing has been kept in the bank account. The Alumni Association was formed to with following objectives;

  • To bring the practical experience to the classrooms through interaction with Alumni
  • To bridge the gap between industry and academia
  • To get inputs from Alumni to make curriculum more contemporary and practical in nature
  • To help our students to get easy access to companies for doing Internship and Dissertation activities
  • To help our students to get better placement and career guidance
  • To provide platform for Faculties and Alumnus to work together on research and case writing
  • To make Alumni to feel good being part of CUK family

The first alumni meet was organized on 29th July 2015 on the eve of second Convocation. It was very appropriate to have alumni meet during convocation because many batch students came to the university to get their degrees; otherwise having large number of alumni meeting one point in time is very difficult due to their organizational commitments. Hence it was decided to have alumni meet every year during the convocation. In the first alumni meet around 30 alumni of different batch of MBA participated and the following resolution was passed;

  • Organizing Alumni meet every year
  • Support for Skill Development, Developing Entrepreneurship and Incubation Centre (Mr. Kumar Aashish from EDII is coordinator for this activity)
  • Alumni interaction with students and alumnus are always welcomed to take classes whenever they are in Kalaburagi
  • Alumni should support for internship and dissertation activities
  • Alumni should keep informing to the department regarding job opportunities in their respective organizations and help for placement
  • If possible hold Alumni meet outside Kalaburagi also (any city alumni feel convenient)
  • Creation of online group for Alumni (Smt. Sana Saima is the in-charge of this activity)
  • To have CUKMSF Magazine/News Letter (Miss. Krutika Sha is the in-charge of this activity)
  • Introduction of Specialization in Operations Management (Mr. Mark Andred is the in-charge of this activity- It is under consideration)
  • Introduction of Data Analytics and R Software (Introduced)
  • It is better to have MS Excel rather than ERP Training (Action initiated)
  • Introduction of CRM and Training (Miss. Nazmeen is the in-charge of this activity)
  • Regular Industrial Visits and alumni should help for getting companies permission
  • Inviting Alumni for every conference and Seminars (Invited and Miss. Ranjitha G P from IIMK and Mr. Kumar Aashis from EDII participated in the Tourism and Entrepreneurship conference which was held on 25th -26th August 2016)
  • Organizing conference under Alumni banner (Funded by University and Alumni)
