The honourable Chief Guest of the ceremony, Shri Rana Kapoor highlighted the special focus on entrepreneurship, innovation and leadership.

In an entrepreneurial economy, creativity and innovation always thrives. You are no longer job seekers, but are job creators." Convocation ceremony marks a memorable day in the life of every graduating student manager who assimilates knowledge and experiences of two years to further utilise it in the corporate world ahead.
