A day to honour talents
International School of Business and Research celebrated its annual convocation day recently
It is the end of the year and for many college students, it is also a farewell time. The students of International School of Business and Research recently took part in the convocation ceremony where they were felicitated with postgraduate certificates, marking the completion of their course.
Though it was a moment of sheer joy to receive the fruits of their two-years’ efforts, it was also a day when they had to bid adieu to the institution and their friends. This business school, which is a unit of Bangalore Educational Trust, made sure this was a grand ceremony. †
G Madhavan Nair, former chairman of Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), was the chairperson and he addressed the convocation gathering. With words of encouragement, he prodded the students to excel in whatever sphere they had chosen. He apprised them of challenges and opportunities before them and advised them to become good leaders and successful entrepreneurs.†
This convocation ceremony saw 246 students receive their postgraduate certificates in different specialisations like finance, marketing, human resource and others. Along with this, seventy eight students were awarded gold medals for meritorious performance in various categories like academics, international relations, best transformation, best team player, leadership and creativity, outstanding service, discipline and special recognition.
The college also has an executive batch. Fifty two students of this batch also received their certificates. A special award called ‘Mr Prakash Kothari Award’ was given to Bharat Jain for his success in the business field. Another highlight of the day was that the institute honoured two achievers on this occasion.
Vani Venkataram was felicitated for her exceptional dedication, hard work and service for the upliftment of the underprivileged and leadership by example. Raj Narayan was felicitated for his technical excellence in the invention and development of electronic musical instruments for exclusive use of Indian classical musicians.
Apart from the felicitation, the business school also released ‘ISBR Gems’, a second edition of the book which introduces the Best ISBR students who could think at the speed of light, be very positive, who gave shape to their ideas and enlightened the whole campus with their positive ideas. Being the first of its kind, the aim to publish this book was to acquaint the people about the study atmosphere on the campus.
