About IIM Mumbai Chapter
In the year 1945, a formal society named “Bombay Metallurgical Society” (BMS) was established. The main activity of the BMS was to organize technical meetings and evening lectures. For all these activities, the BMS received support mainly from the non-ferrous metal industry, which had a much larger base in Bombay as compared to the Iron, & Steel industry. In 1957, BMS was amalgamated with the IIM to become its Bombay Chapter. During the amalgamation, the members of BMS asked that the letterhead of the Bombay Chapter should always carry the following words: “Incorporating the Bombay Metallurgical Society”, which it proudly does to this day.
