Equipped for the corporate world

The eleventh batch of Indus Business Academy (IBA) had its convocation ceremony recently and they were given a send-off with great pomp and glory. The entire IBA family, comprising teaching and non-teaching faculty, witnessed the ceremony and offered their best wishes to the students in their future endeavours.

Starting with an invocation to Saraswati, the goddess of knowledge, the auspicious day began on a peaceful note. Titled ‘A New Beginning’ using the metaphor for students entering the corporate world, the day saw inspiring speeches by the dignitaries and heads of the college.

Several students received various awards and scholarships, including ‘Dr Anil Agrawal’s Memorial Award’ worth Rs 25,000, which was grabbed by Swati Jain of the outgoing batch.
“It is great to get this award along with the ‘Best Student Award’, which is given to students who excel in academics through all six semesters and take part in extra-curricular activities. My parents are also honoured by the fact that this college has chosen me for this award,” says Swati, a finance and marketing PGDM student.

“The faculty here, especially visiting faculty, were really good. The exposure the college gave us by letting us participate in fests and by taking us on industry visits helped me chalk out my career path,” she adds.

Every student was conferred their degree certificate by chief guest Sovan Roy, director-general, All India Breweries Association. He said he wanted to see these students at top levels in the new world that they were stepping into. Students graduated with flying colours and the same pride was visible on their as well as their parent’s faces. “It feels great to work hard and be recognised for it. And that’s exactly what this college does — it encourages you to act to the best of your capacity and acknowledges that effort. I’m going to miss the professors and friends I’ve made here,” shares Sauvik Paul, who won the award for ‘Best Outgoing Student in Academics’.

The day ended with professor Prashant, a faculty member of the college, giving his regards to the students and hoping that they will make their Alma Mater proud at different levels.
