BIMTECH held the convocation for its PGDM 2016-18 class on April 11. As many as 423 students were awarded their postgraduate degrees at a huge gathering in India Exposition Mart in Greater Noida.

The Vice President of India, Venkaiah Naidu, was the Chief Guest of the ceremony, which was declared open by Jayashree Mohta, Chairperson, Board of Directors, Birla Group.

According to him, “Twenty-first century India has got some extraordinary talent which the youth must upgrade from time to time so that they excel in the corporate world.” He emphasised on the the four positive Cs that students should build — character, calibre, capacity and conduct. He further urged students to ‘Reform, Perform, and Transform’, and become worthy citizens of the country.

He also asked students to remember that education should not be for commission, but to instil values, while enocouraging them to be job creators instead of being job seekers. “This process might give temporary pain but will deliver long-term gains,” he said, and quoted former President of India, Dr APJ Abdul Kalam: One should aim high and work hard for it.
