605 students graduate at Great Lakes Chennai’s 14th Annual Convocation Ceremony

GLM_imgGreat Lakes Institute of Management, Chennai hosted its 14th Annual Convocation Ceremony on July 6, 2018, at CTC Convention Center, Nandambakkam. A total of 605 students graduated this year across full-time and executive programs including PGPM, PGDM, PGXPM and PGPM (Flex). During the ceremony, six best outgoing students and four academic toppers received gold medals. Around 96 graduands in different categories also received medals during the ceremony. Mr. Robert G. Burgess, US Consul General, Chennai, who was the Guest of Honour at the event, delivered the presidential address and Mr. Mohan Lakhamraju, Vice- Chairman & CEO, Great Lakes Institute of Management, delivered the convocation address.

 

Dr. Bala V Balachandran, Founder, Dean & Chairman, Great Lakes Institute of Management, congratulated the graduands and said, “As you are receiving your degrees today and stepping out into the corporate world, as a graduate and ambassador for this institution, I and the GL community wish you all the very best for your future. Education is the only solution to economic prosperity and tranquillity in the world.  So, whatever you earn, make sure to give it back to society and leave behind a legacy. We only hope that in years to come, everyone will be talking about all of your achievements, and you will forever remember the time spent here, and make your alma mater proud."

 

Further, encouraging the graduands, Dr Bala added, “Given that ongoing technology and industrial revolution occurring at ridiculously higher rates, I urge all of you to take up more challenging tasks that will empower you with skills. Make use of every opportunity, even if there exists a small window, seize it. If not someone else will run with it.”

 

Delivering the Presidential address, Mr. Robert G Burgess, US Consul General, Chennai, advised the students and said, "The gift of Education brings responsibility. As you are graduating today, always remember three things in life - Give back to the society, remember the importance of ethics. Education is a life-long pursuit, so keep expanding your horizon and keep learning." 

 

Mr Robert also expressed how India and US have strengthened their relationship in all these years and applauded India's spirit of Entrepreneurship. "Being an entrepreneur means taking risks, applying practical ideas and accepting the risk of failures" he added.

 

Mr Mohan Lakhamraju, Vice Chairman and CEO,  Great Lakes Institute of Management, delivered the graduation address and shared learning from his professional and educational experience. He said,  "Find your passion, be persistent and adapt to changes. You have been lucky to have experienced quality education. This will definitely change and impact you well in your career ahead. Be ready to take up challenges. The pace at which technology change is happening today, make the most use of it and skill yourself with new techniques. "

 

Besides academic toppers, medals were awarded to nearly 96 graduands in the following categories – Overall outstanding contribution, Dean’s merit list, Domain toppers, best Empirical Study and Committee contributors. 25 graduands from PGPM and PGDM also received an additional Advanced Management Program (AMP) from University of Bordeaux.
