While delivering the convocation address, Mr. Sinha, the chief guest of the event, said, “Graduating from IIM A is huge.  Don’t waste it.  Be sure to be worthy of yourself.”

He went on saying that “Whatever you do, do with full commitment. You will never discover what you are really good at with a partial commitment. That is the only way you can learn. You cannot find fulfilment without commitment.”

Mr. Srikant Datar delivered the chief guest address on behalf of Mr. Kumar Manglam Birla who couldn’t make it to the event. He congratulated the students and appealed them to be the best version of themselves.

Prof. Errol D’Souza, Director of IIM-A, delivered the concluding address. He focused on the diversity factor of the batch and introduced the gathering to some interesting facts like the PGP batch had 32 percent non-engineering students, the highest ever in more than 15 years. The PGP-FABM had 45 percent non-engineering students.

He wished all the students the best that the life has to offer. He further said “Be alive to the imaginations and the possibilities and continue to invent the future. After all, you are from IIMA.”
