MICA Ahmedabad commences PGDM batch 2015
MICA Ahmedabad on June 29 announces the academic year open for its students of the 22nd PGDM (C) batch, the 25th CCC batch and the 5th FPM batch. Saugata Gupta, the CEO, Consumer Products – Marico, was the Chief Guest of the occasion.
Mr. Sethu Iyer, Acting Executive Registrar (I/C), invited the Chief Guest, Mr. Gupta along with the members of the MICA Governing Council, Mr. Sandeep Menon- Global Practice Leader- Digital Design and Strategy, Cognizant Interactive, Bangalore; Mr. Santosh Desai, MD and CEO, FutureBrands Ltd, New Delhi and the President and Director, Dr. Nagesh Rao, to jointly inaugurate the 3 programmes and light the inaugural lamp.
The President and Director, Dr.Nagesh Rao welcomed the Chief Guest, all the members of the faculty and staff, as well as the students from various courses at MICA. He took this opportunity to introduce the Dean, Dr. Atish Chattopadhyay, and two of the newest members of the Governing Council- Mr. Tridip Shurud, Director and Chief Editor, Sabarmati Ashram Preservation and Memorial Trust, Gandhi Ashram, Ahmedabad and Mr. Achal Bakeri, an Indian entrepreneur and founder, chairman and managing director of Symphony Limited, the world's largest air-cooler manufacturing company, to the MICA fraternity.
The inaugural function also saw a book release by the Chief Guest, Mr. Gupta – “Charity to Parity: New Dimensions of NGO Management”, authored by MICA Professor, Dr. Shubra Gaur and was described to give an organizational management perspective to students, scholars and practitioners alike. It is based on the works of Prof. Gaur in association with the Blind People’s Association in Ahmedabad, one of the city’s most efficiently run NGOs.
Post the book release, the new dean addressed the students of MICA and introduced Mr. Saugata Gupta, the Chief Guest for the occasion. “In order to succeed at something, one has to not only like it, but also be good at it. Liking alone isn’t enough to advance in a profession, because in such a case the practice, in fact remains a mere hobby”, he said.
Mr. Gupta added, “Finding balance in a VUCA world – one with Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity, is highly crucial in order to excel.” He encouraged the students to chose the power of the “AND” to overcome the tyranny of the “OR” and claimed that benchmarking, unlearning and reinventing are highly important for businesses to stay in the race and compete with one another to provide a comprehensive value add to the end consumers.
