Bangalore: IFIM Business School, Bangalore, one of the top 6 B-schools in India to have been awarded the coveted AACSB accreditation, celebrated its 23rd Annual Convocation at their campus, in Electronic City. This year witnessed 249 students of the 2017-2019 batch receive their post-graduate diplomas in the presence of Chief Guest Dean Simon Mercado of ESCP London, and Guest of Honor, Dr. Bala Bharadwaj, Managing Director at Boeing India Engineering and Technology Center.

During the convocation address, Chief Guest, Dr. Simon Mercado, Dean, ESCP Europe Business School, London said, “IFIM Business School has been adding trained workforce to India’s reservoir where these students will be the change agents and will lead the fourth industrial revolution that the world is observing today. A deep sense of social responsibility and humanity that has been inculcated in these future leaders, will help them grow in their career with responsibility.”

Guest of Honor, Dr. Bala Bharadwaj, Managing Director, Boeing India Engineering and Technology Center, addressed the session, “It is a great honor to be part of this special occasion. I would like to congratulate the graduates and it is my privilege to guide the talented bunch of enthusiasts in their process of becoming professionals from students. I would like to give a ‘TIP’ to these budding entrepreneurs. Working in collaboration with ‘Transparency’ will be the core strength of a professional where truth and integrity will be the key. ‘Innovation’ will drive the creativity and success where ‘People’ will be the centre of businesses. The right balance of these will lead to the right management techniques for our country, leading to successful businesses and the growth of our economy.”

Dr. Atish Chattopadhyay, Director, IFIM Business School in his inaugural speech expressed,“We at IFIM, remain committed to providing a superior learning experience to our participants, which provides them with the advantage of having a strong global orientation with sensitivity towards distributive justice while being relevant to practice. It has been our endeavour to introduce such pedagogical innovations where participants can discover knowledge through experiences and personal reflections.  We believe that ‘Doing’ leads to ‘Knowing’. To further strengthen the exposure to global best practices, starting this year, we introduced the idea of ‘International Super-specialization’ to provide our participants inputs on advanced courses of specialization at the top global B-schools in new age disciplines.  IFIM Business School today offers its participants an opportunity to take specialized courses in partnering schools like McCombs at Texas at Austin for Big Data and Blockchain, Stanford University for Design Thinking and Innovation, ESCP London for Fintech and Digital Transformation; and the University of Virginia for MarTech. Today, we recommit ourselves to nurturing holistic, socially responsible and continuously employable professionals.”
