Don’t be complacent, Chandrababu Naidu told Management Grads

You are more qualified than me in management education. But, I am more practical in execution. Complacency doesn’t work: Chandrababu Naidu

I have no regrets about bifurcation of the state.  It gave us an opportunity to start a fresh.  It gave us a rare opportunity to build a city-Amaravathi, which we will make it one of the top five in the world: Chandrababu Naidu

Don’t be complacent. Strive hard. Be innovative said Chandrababu Naidu, while addressing the students at the IMT Hyderabad’s 5th Convocation held here in city at its Campus in Shamshabad near Rajiv Gandhi Airport.

Naidu was the Chief Guest at the Convocation.  You are more educated than me in management. But, I am more practical in execution than you.  Complacency doesn’t work. People in Dubai are complacent. They are happy with what they have, Naidu told 1000 plus gathering of students, parents and invited guests.

India is the best place for work in future.  US, China and India are going to be economic super powers of the world.  India will be number one economy very soon.  You need to be innovative to come up in your life.  In 1994-95 I have imagined that Knowledge Economy would be future and I saw that in Information Technology and gave it a priority. Rest is the history, he said.

Speaking further he added that he has no grievances about bifurcation. It gave me to start a fresh. Every crisis is an opportunity.  I have created Hyderabad.  Now we got an opportunity to build Amaravathi, which is a rare opportunity. We will make it number one 1 among the top five cities in the world. 

Adding further he stressed upon Indian values.  People in western world have mechanical relationships.  In China they are permitted to have only one child.  Old aged parents live separately and feel lonely. India is the only country which has stronger family bonding.  Happiness comes only with the family he said. And he told the graduating students to protect values. 


Addressing the media immediately after the convocation, Naidu told that AP has attracted nearly 50 prestigious institutions, both private, government and through PPP model. These include IIT, IIMs, SRM, VIT and many other.  When asked if IMT would expand to AP, he said they are taking a cautious approach, he told.

Institute of Management Technology (IMT) – Hyderabad is the premier Business School located in sprawling 30acre Green Campus.   Awards of Diplomas were presented to 172 students  of PGDM .

The campus which is located in 2 lakh sq. ft is the latest one under IMT. Kamal Nath, President of IMT Group of Institutions said business schools need to change according to changing times.  They must provide tools to facilitate future managers.  The very important skill management colleges need to impart is “Decision Making”.  They must be equipped them with tools to face future challenges.  Information is the ultimate currency. Today’s management grads must be able to use data and analytics to their advance much against their competition.  Harness technology instead of treating it as hurdle, he said

It’s not just profits that count, but how much value is created for the community matters, Kamal Nath said.
