Out with a sense of achievement

Mount Carmel Institute of Management held its 19th convocation in the college recently. The graduating batch of ‘PGDBM 2010-12’ confessed that it would certainly miss the days spent in college. However, the students said that they were carrying with them memories of time spent amidst their teachers and friends.  
The convocation began on a sombre note with a lamp-lighting ceremony by former Lokayukta Justice Santosh Hedge. The students were reminded of their days in college and given a brief about what the future holds for them. They were told about being responsible individuals and were advised to pursue their profession with a sense of dedication and commitment. 

Nihal Bajwa bagged the first rank in marketing and IT specialisation. She was also awarded the ‘most promising general manager award’, ‘best researcher award’, ‘best corporate communicator award’ and ‘best academic performer award.’ Nihal was also given a cash award of Rs 10,000.

 Shakti Devi stood second and topped in finance, banking and insurance while Neha Goyal came third and was the topper in retail management. She was also given the ‘best corporate communicator award’. Principal Sr Juanita gave away the convocation certificates to the outgoing students who looked elegant in off-white silk saris.  

In his convocation address, Justice Santosh Hedge said that education was a never-ending process. Quoting Robert Frost, Santosh said the students had miles and miles to go before they could sleep.

He shared his personal experience with the students and inspired them to work towards achieving their goals and remain true to their profession.

After the formal function, it was time for friends to get together, click pictures and exchange last-minute farewell notes. It was evident that the girls had got close over the last two years. They clicked pictures and exchange numbers and e-mail ids so that they could stay in touch. 

The students had chalked out their future plans and knew exactly what they wanted to pursue after their graduation. Management, marketing and finance topped the list of preferences. They said that the college had done well in giving them the right kind of exposure and grounding to face the competitive corporate set up.
