Hone your conduct

Reflecting on his own journey, Goldman Sachs Chairman Chatterjee, said, “Embrace the next two years of your life for they will be transformational as you set out to be citizens, corporate citizens, citizens of our country and citizens of this world. Hone your conduct. The ideas that you stand for, the principles that you stand for and the courage that you bring. Ultimately it will define who you are and how people perceive you — and this institution to a degree through you."

“Discipline and Teamwork are vital for the next two years and beyond. These principles should be the prime attributes outside this campus,” he added while drawing learnings from Former President of India Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan.

Write your own story

On this occasion, Prof Janat Shah, Director, IIM Udaipur said, “You have worked hard to be here, and have taken a bet on yourself and your future in these tough times. We will provide the platform and enable the ecosystem, but you will be writing your story. You will discover what you are good at, and how you can become financially stable, and at the same time, contribute to the society.”

Following the inauguration ceremony, the B-School organised several rounds of general orientations regarding the institute’s Vision 2030.
