“Youth Passing Out Today Must Know the Global Paradigm Shift” – Sunil Bharti Mittal at the IMT Convocation 2017

IMT Ghaziabad, India’s premier management school, witnessed a grand ceremony of the Annual Convocation 2017 today at its campus in Ghaziabad, Delhi NCR. The Chief Guest at this year’s convocation was Shri Sunil Bharti Mittal, Founder and Chairman – Bharti Enterprises. Shri Kamal Nath, President – IMT Governing Council, Member of Parliament, and Former Union Cabinet Minister presided over the event and awarded the diplomas to the graduating students.

IMT Convocation

A total of 545 Students from six different programmes, namely Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) – Full  Time, PGDM – Finance, PGDM – Marketing, PGDM – Dual Country Programme (DCP), PGDM – Executive, and PGDM – Part Time, graduated at the convocation ceremony while the faculty members, proud parents, friends and relatives watched from the sea of audience present during the event.

Chief Guest Shri Sunil Bharti Mittal delivered the convocation address. He talked about his journey as an entrepreneur. He said, “World has dynamically altered – the economic and political structure and especially the digital technology is witnessing major change. The big wheel of world growth, China has stalled at about 6%, global average growth has come down, but India maintains a growth at above 7%. Everyone is facing the heat of global growth slowing down. Xenophobia and anti-immigration sentiments are on the rise and the youth passing out must know this global paradigm shift. Today's digital moves are truly threading job expansion – robotics, 3D printing, Artificial Intelligence, etc. can replace job opportunity. WTO must ensure obstruction to movement of people should be the least. Indian leaders must ensure this. Every technology as it poses challenges also opens up many opportunities as well building an eco-system around the new technology. New technologies will make interfaces easy and more and more people will join digital movements, and the amount of opportunities digitalisation creates, like the cashless economy will bring many opportunities to the students.

IMT Convocation 2017

Sunil Nayyar, Marketing Director, Sony Corp, USA, an alumnus of 1991, received the IMT Distinguished Alumnus Award 2017 for his exceptional contribution to the industry and the Institute. The Vishit Jain Memorial Award was conferred upon Gagandeep Hardeep Marwaha of the PGDM 2015-17 for an all-round performance with noticeable impact and quality of achievements.

Also, the toppers of all six programmes were acknowledged with the award of Gold and Silver Medals.

Shri Kamal Nath, President – IMT Governing Council, said in his address to the students, “Management thoughts are US centric, but with the emergence of the Asian economy, this is set to undergo a transformation. One must know how to manage in view of globalisation, knowing nuances of different regions and geo political developments. As next generation business leaders, you must be aware of this. We need to remember that data and technology are only enablers and as team managers, you must also focus on people skills alongside embracing these technologies. Business objectives need to align with the needs of the society. One must know the thin line between profit and profiteering. Let our ethical compass be unwavering. In your journey from a cubicle to corner office keep your values intact.

IMT Ghaziabad

IMT Ghaziabad Director Dr Atish Chattopadhyay delivered the welcome address and summarised the key milestones and achievements during the past academic year. He said, “As the global economy is undergoing a huge rebalancing and the nature of work is changing due to technology led disruptions, IMT has recognised these forces and taken steps to equip its students well to face the new challenges”.We look forward to 2017 with renewed optimism with the formation of the Real Time Contextual Marketing Lab (RTCML), perhaps a first in the country by any B-School which will see the convergence of Digital, Mobile, Social, Analytics and other new media applications. We are confident that the proposed Centre for Development Studies too will create an impact. We will continue to deepen our engagement with the industry and IMT will launch its Bloomberg Trade & Research Lab which will allow students to execute mock trades on global exchanges and gain expertise of trading in financial markets.” he added, touching upon some of the new initiatives in the offing.

The convocation ceremony was concluded with the national anthem and the procession leaving the lawns. This was followed by a brief media interaction with the Chief Guest Shri Sunil Bharti Mittal and Shri Kamal Nath.
