MBF (Marianites’ Business Forum) is a global platform for the alumni of Marian College Kuttikkanam, to meet, network and showcase their business and profession. This is a specialized wing for the members of Marian Alumni Association, to unify business-persons and professionals across the globe, by representing their respective fields of work for fruitful collaborations. Startup support, guidance for beginning new businesses and networking between similar businesses are the main activities of this wing.
This initiative of Marian Alumni Association Kuttikkanam was officially inaugurated by Rev. Dr. Roy Abraham P (the Principal of Marian College Kuttikkanam) on the 1st of September 2021.
The purpose of this wing is to build, maintain and update a database of the alumni with accurate information. To serve this purpose, representatives from every batch graduated from the college were identified and brought together in a WhatsApp group – ‘Torchbearers’. The association was able to reach out to the alumni and build this database through these batch representatives. Therefore we are empowered to communicate effectively to the alumni who have shared their contact details for the database.
Marian Alumni Association Kuttikkanam has protected the rights of access to this database and have assured the alumni from any unauthorised use of their information.
