Mr. Subroto Bagchi, Chairman, Mindtree, was the Chief Guest of the Convocation and delivered the convocation address. Mr. Subroto Bagchi rather took a tell-a-tale way while delivering the convocation address. He shared few instances from his life to underline the importance of empathy, inner and outer resilience, the traits which one has to develop along with the academic qualifications. Not undermining the importance of building a career, he insisted the students to realize the need of building institution. Go kiss the world – he flamboyantly wished congratulations to all the students who received the Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM). Before the address, he conferred the gold medals to the students who exceled in various subjects.
Dr. N.R. Parasuraman, Director, SDMIMD presented the glimpse of significant advancements made by the institute including A** rating by CRISIL and international tie-ups with British University in Dubai. Dr. H. Gayathri, Deputy Director, SDMIMD, gave away the vote of thanks.
