Convocation for PGDM 2020-22 Batch

17 November 2022

A convocation ceremony recognises the years of hard work of students and rewards the voluntary sacrifices made by their families. At the post-graduate level, it becomes even more special as it could lead to the beginning of a professional journey. The MATS Institute of Management (MIME) organised the convocation ceremony for PGDM 2020-22 batch on 5 November 2022.

The dignitaries lit the lamp to start the convocation ceremony, and during the prayer, they envisioned the light of knowledge eliminating the darkness of ignorance. Officiating on behalf of the chairman and board of governors, Dr. NVH Krishnan, Registrar - JAIN (A Deemed-to-be University), formally declared the convocation open.

Dr. Jitendra Kumar Mishra, Director - MIME, welcomed all the guests, dignitaries, and students. Dr. Mishra delivered a report on behalf of the institution that focused on the key accomplishments the institution has made since the previous batch's convocation held on 26 September 2021. He complimented the graduating students for their excellent cooperation with the institute while negotiating the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. Further, Dr. Mishra congratulated the graduating students for their sincere efforts in achieving good placements and wished them all the best in their professional journeys.

Sri. Ravindra Bhandary, Vice-President of JAIN Group, was the special guest at the event. In his inspiring message to the graduating students, Sri. Bhandary highlighted that since everything in this world keeps changing, one needs to make one’s life as simple as possible and keep dreaming big, as nothing is impossible to achieve. He urged the graduating students to be grateful to their parents for their sacrifices.

Sri. Anish Philip, Chief People Officer of Movate Technologies Private Limited (formerly known as CSS Corporation), was the Guest of Honour. He distributed the medals and merit certificates to the achievers from PGDM 2020-22 batch in the Marketing and HR streams. Delivering his convocation message, he asked the students to recognise the importance of looking at the larger picture. He advised placing importance on key points like integrity, personal values, handling failures, learning, unlearning, relearning, keeping an open mind, focusing on the purpose, having fun, the importance of physical and mental health, humility, and having a disciplined mind. Detailing the importance of each of these points, Sri. Anish emphasised the need for constant contemplation of these focal points during the course of one’s life’s journey.

Sri. Kotur PB, Head of the Global Fresher Engagement Program WIPRO Ltd. was the chief guest for the event. He distributed the medals and merit certificates to the achievers from PGDM 2020-22 batch in the marketing and finance streams. He asked the students to simultaneously focus on the job which is single-skilled and on the career which is multi-skilled. Sharing a few mantras derived from his experiences and insights, Sri. Kotur emphasised the importance of constant learning, reduced levels of imitation, emulating nature and predicting the future, and being active as well as relaxed. He advocated the need to follow the 3 Fs (food, family, and friendship), the 3 Ps (passion, purpose, and performance), and the need for constant self-contemplation on these insightful points.

The following students of the PGDM 2020-22 batch were honoured with medals and merit certificates during the convocation:
