The graduation day commenced with the ceremonial procession led by the Dean, Chief Guest, Deputy Dean and other senior faculty members. 

Congratulating the graduating students, the chief guest Dr. Satyanarayana Chava, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Laurus Labs, and ISB alumnus from the PGPMAX Class of 2011, said: “A leader has to share his friends, wealth, and success, and not look for scapegoats among his employees. Don’t share the blame, share the fame.” He also said that the ability to accept a mistake is very important for a leader. “This was the biggest lesson from my career,” he said.

Professor Madan Pillutla, Dean, ISB highlighted that the graduating batches are the most resilient in the history of ISB, so far, as they graduated through the two difficult years of a global pandemic. He encouraged the students to act immediately to help improve the lives of those not as privileged.

The School also celebrated the accomplishments of its students and gave away awards to students who excelled in academics, extra-curricular activities, and those who had demonstrated exemplary leadership skills throughout the programme. Awards were also given to the best faculty and academic associates. The graduation ceremony ended with the formal hat toss by the jubilant graduating students in the presence of their family members and friends.
