Graduation Day 2016
Campuses of the Indian School of Business (ISB) in Hyderabad and Mohali were the scene of joy, pride and celebrations over the weekend of April 8-10, 2016 with over 700 students of the PGP Class of 2016, PGPMAX Class of 2015 and MFAB Class of 2015 graduating with flying colours.
It was only apt that two of India’s best known corporate leaders, Chanda Kochhar, CEO & MD of India’s largest private sector bank, ICICI Bank, and Rahul Bhatia, Group MD, Interglobe Enterprises, which operates India’s largest private sector airline, addressed the students and their families in Hyderabad and Mohali respectively.
Hearts swelled with pride as the students, smartly turned out in graduation gowns, marched behind the Dean’s entourage that included the respective guests of honour, members of the ISB Executive Board and faculty into the Convocation venue. The occasion marked the culmination of a grueling and exacting year of study, business competitions, conferences, and industry activities.
Furious click of photos and selfies, warm embraces and farewell hugs were the order of the day. The venue was a sea of delightful faces. The sacrifices and hard work the students had put in, had after all borne fruit.
Apart from receiving the certificates from the dignitaries on the dais, the customary and mandatory “hat toss” was the much awaited ritual of the evening and morning in Hyderabad and Mohali respectively. The hats seemed to rise and rise, propelled by big daring dreams, carrying bright new hopes for an extraordinary career for those who walked out of the precincts of ISB on this day.
Heartiest congratulations to all our graduating students and their families!
