On Saturday, 4 November 2017, ISM Patna hosted convocation ceremony for their PGDM
students. The ceremony commenced with the procession march followed by the lamp lighting by
the Guest of Honor, Mr. Ram Lal Khaitan (Ex-President, Bihar Industries Association),
Mr.Deval Singh (Vice-Chairman ISM Patna) and Dr.Jagdish Prasad (Director, ISM Patna).
Mr. Khaitan in his address to the audience described what each individual should possess while
obtaining the degree to carve out their careers, he shared a few pointers: Try to do a little better,
by having a set goal and do what you like, and have time to ponder and analyze! Things cannot
be achieved in a day. They need to gain success by putting their hardship. He shared few
anecdotes which inspired even person in the auditorium. Dr. Jagdish Prasad stressed on creating
impetus to cultivate the right tendency and attitude among the next generation of students which
can take them to greater heights. But of course, the pinnacle of life does not pertain to success in
career alone. It is undeniably true that personal desire takes precedence over the greater good.
Hence, it is important that the future leaders of Bihar should not be oblivious to problems of the
state or nation, but rather, they should seek to enhance the state or nation to make it a better place
for everyone to live in. This point was reiterated by Valedictorian Mr. Navneet Singh who
graduated with PGDM specializing in Finance and Marketing. He emphasized the importance of
corporate social sustainability and hence inspired the post-graduating cohort to make a difference
in others' lives.
Our heartiest congratulations to the students of PGDM (2015-2017) on successful completion of
their course with excellent final placement at well reputed organizations
