International School of Business and Research (ISBR) held its convocation for the students of 2012 batch at their Electronics City campus recently.

The batch of 120 students was full of the hopes about their future.

Out of the 120 students who were given their graduate certificates, 32 were awarded gold medals for meritorious performance in various fields — academics, international relations, best transformation, best team player, leadership and creativity, outstanding service, discipline and special recognition.

While 44 students belonged to the MBA and PGDM full-time programme, over 70 of them belonged to the distance education and executive MBA programme.

Recollecting her experience at the institute, Shagufta — who received the Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) — said, “Actually, I was not at all polished when I came in, I was just a graduate. I had no idea about the corporate sector. However, after coming here, the institute gave me direction, taught me a lot and gave me good skills to compete.”

CB Thawa Prashanth Rao, who was looking for an institute which focussed on ‘practical knowledge’, said, “For me, it was always practical knowledge that was important. That was one of the reasons that I chose this institute. They never failed my expectations.” G Bharani, who received an MBA degree, was all praises for the college.

We had a good management, faculty and infrastructure here,” beamed Bharani.

KS Anandaram, director of ISBR, welcomed the audience comprising of graduates, faculty members, corporates and parents. MN Vidyashankar, principal secretary to Government of Karnataka, Commerce and Industries Department, delivered the convocation address.
Nobuaki Yamamoto, consul and head of consulate of Japan and HV Harish, president of Bangalore Chamber of Industry and Commerce, were the guests of honour.

Delivering the inaugural address, Harish spoke about factors that students must be prepared to grow. He also urged the students to have a positive outlook and focus on learning throughout life.

In addition, a coffee table book called ‘Gems of ISBR’ was released on the occasion by Nobuaki. Addressing the gathering, he emphasised the need for Japan and India to strengthen their ties.

“With over 100 Japanese nationals and about 230 Japanese companies in Karnataka, our countries should strengthen the ties further for the prosperity of Asia and the world. My heartfelt congratulations to the graduating students,” he concluded.
