While congratulating all the students and the Institute on completing a decade journey, Sanjiv Puri, Chairman & Managing Director of ITC Ltd, shared his life lessons and industry perspectives with the students and said, "The world is changing at an unprecedented magnitude. Digital and sustainability are the defining trends for the next decade. This is the beginning of a new era where resilience and reliability are the dynamics of the geopolitical ecosystem. In the 1990s, when the Indian economy was opening up, a massive transition happened. It was then thought the coming generations would never witness these transformations. Today, it's even more dramatic and profound. It created the desire in people to change, empowered and skilled them to adapt to the new normal."
He held several business leadership positions and handled many responsibilities in manufacturing, operations, and information & digital technology. He used insightful examples from his career of over three decades and from the ITC Group to explain the absolute importance of digital and sustainability in today’s world of business.
He further added, "Success is 99% hard work and 1% intelligence. The tremendous amount of perseverance, energy, and the ability to learn and unlearn is how you can join the dots and evolve strategically. The four lessons: challenging and seizing the opportunity, future-oriented, collaborating with energy, and pursuing a choice with passion, are the life lessons to be followed during the entire journey of your life."
In his concluding address Prof. Janat Shah, Director, IIM Udaipur said, "It is a momentous occasion as we celebrate the convocation ceremony of our tenth batch with the Institute. It has been the most eventful and remarkable year for the IIMU community as we completed a decade of our establishment.. My limited memory recalls that the graduating batches of 2020 and 2022 experienced a turn of events that could as well be construed as extraordinary. You are the first batch who started their MBA journey online due to the unprecedented global pandemic outbreak. You supported your teachers and batchmates and showed resilience under great stress. This graduating batch will remain a special batch for us as you helped us manage these difficult times without compromising the transformational experience quality. We are already proud of your forthcoming achievements and anticipate the unique paths you will tread that will benefit you, society and humankind."
