Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan’s S.P. Jain Institute of Management and Research (SPJIMR), Mumbai, hosted its 21st Annual Convocation on May 18. The event marked a significant milestone in the academic journey for nearly 700 graduates across nine diverse programmes, including full-time, executive, modular and doctoral. They joined the distinguished ranks of nearly 15,500 SPJIMR alumni spread across the globe.

The ceremony was presided over by Mr. Deepak Parekh, Chairman of the SPJIMR Governing Council, alongside the Dean, Prof. Varun Nagaraj, Associate Deans and Programme Chairs, joined by faculty members, students and their families, and staff. He also congratulated and motivated young graduates on their new journey.

The 65 recipients of the Dean’s Honour List received their commendation certificates from the Dean, while a total of 18 top achievers across programmes were presented with Scholastic Medals by Chief Guest Mr. R. Gopalakrishnan, renowned corporate advisor and author.

In his address, Gopalakrishnan outlined key mindsets and practices essential for success in any domain. He underscored the significance of institutions nurturing future-ready values across generations. Challenging conventional views on leadership, he urged graduates to strive for values-based institutions grounded in Intelligence, Emotion and Adaptability Quotients. With a focus on ‘The Tomorrow Leader’, he outlined crucial capabilities for navigating future challenges, while also imparting 10 invaluable skills essential for effective leadership. “Leadership is not just about reaching the summit; it’s about leaving a trail for others to climb. Embrace humility, curiosity and adaptability as your guiding lights on this journey towards becoming future-ready leaders,” he advised.

Dean, Prof. Varun Nagaraj urged the graduates to make the most of this pivotal juncture in their lives. He asserted, “The close of your academic journey is the start of boundless prospects. It is a testament to your resilience and perseverance. Let the knowledge and values you have acquired serve you well. Embrace them and let them navigate you towards excellence, while remaining anchored in humility.”
