Addressing 613 freshly minted management experts who graduated from the Hyderabad campus of the Indian School of Business, Nobel Laureate Kailash Satyarthi asked them to inculcate the values, spirit and capacity for social return in whatever they did in future. The child rights activist and Nobel Peace Prize winner was the chief guest at the 14th Graduation Day.
“There is a serious trust deficit between civil society, business and governments in general. ISB can play a big role in bridging these gaps and building capacity within industry for socially responsible businesses. And I am willing to work with ISB towards this,” said Satyarthi.
The gathering included 551 students of the Class of 2015 of the Post-Graduate Programme (PGP) and 62 students of the Class of 2014 of the PGP in Management for Senior Executives (PGPMAX), and their families.
“It is heartening to see alumni from our early classes already taking on leadership positions across the world. Close to 200 of them have moved into CXO positions in the corporate world and nearly 400 have started their own businesses," said Ajit Rangnekar, Dean of ISB, while congratulating the graduating batch.
"The strength of ISB lies in students like you with diverse backgrounds, a world-class faculty, inspiring campuses at both locations, and finally the success of our alumni. There is no easy way in life and there is enormous success awaiting those who work hard on a sustained basis.”
