Jaipuria Institute hosts 12th convocation

Never accept limits, use alternative thinking to bring change, says Mahindra Group CEO Rajeev Dubey

Jaipuria Institute of Management, Jaipur, hosted its 12th annual convocation for its PGDM batch of 2017-19. Rajeev Dubey, group president (HR and corporate services) and CEO (after-market sector), Mahindra & Mahindra, was the chief guest. Sharad Jaipuria, chairman, Jaipuria Institute; Shreevats Jaipuria, vice-chairman, Jaipuria Insitute; and Dr Prabhat Pankaj, director of the institute, were present.

Sharad Jaipuria advised students to take up all the opportunities that come their way and said everyone should be a dynamic and a continuous learner.

Alternative thinking

Dubey spoke on the 3+5 framework to succeed in the VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) world. He said performance, care and core values go together.

He emphasised that to be sustainable, one has to nurture and nourish the core values of the organisation. He motivated the students to face the ups and downs with strength. He quoted Mahatma Gandhi’s quote “Karo ya Maro” to explain the strength of dreams. Students should never accept any limit and use alternative thinking to bring about positive change, he said.

The five behaviours

Dubey shared five behaviours crucial in today’s organisation. The first is the ability to use logic, rationality and intuition. The second is to do more with less and become multipliers. The third is managing fear and leveraging failure. The fourth is to be aware of all the possibilities. The fifth, and most important, is trust.

Dr Pankaj discussed Jaipuria’s model of learning, which is based on four pillars — industry connect, 24*7 learning environment, learning beyond classroom and global exposure. He presented the annual report of the institute and said that the institute has been ranked among the top 75 B-schools, consecutively for two years.
