Rajalakshmi School of Business (RSB), Chennai, celebrated its 3rd Graduation Day on Saturday, the 14th of September, 2019.
Dr. (Mrs.) Thangam Meganathan, Chairperson, Rajalakshmi Institutions, welcomed the gathering, and pointed out how the School offered a Post Graduate Diploma in Management programme that was individually tailored to the students, and was different from the regular MBA programmes. She also asked the students to practice the knowledge and skills gained from the institution in their future life. Dr. (Mrs.) Thangam Meganathan, Chairperson, Rajalakshmi Institutions, in her address, said “Education doesn’t stop after you graduate, or after you finish a degree or PhD. It is a moral duty because it is only through continuous learning that we can add to the vast knowledge of mankind. In today’s fast-paced business world, no one’s going to give you permission to engage in continuous learning - a strategy that is essential to your future success. You must take the initiative yourself.” She added that globalization, the advent of information technology, and the development of a knowledge-based economy are leading to changes at an unprecedented rate and scale. Current knowledge is made obsolete at a faster pace than ever before, accelerating change in nearly every area of human endeavor. She concluded that continuous learning would be the only key ingredient in the success of personal as well as professional life.
Professor Gautam Ghosh, Director, RSB, read the Annual Report.
Mr. Kumaran Mani, CEO, Tenth Planet Technologies, Pvt. Ltd., was the Chief Guest, and conferred the Post Graduate Diploma in Management on the 21 graduating students and gave away citations and medals to the top-ranked students. The Management honored the rank holders with Gold and Silver Medals and Certificates.
Mr. Kumaran Mani, in his graduation day address, shared his lessons from his entrepreneurial journey of building a global, scalable, sustainable and a successful business, and pointed out the best things he had learned along the way. He also mentioned that “Gratitude is Attitude. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow”, saying that the gratitude shown to other people comes back to yourself multiple-fold. He explained the 10 values for success that include confidence, courage, creativity, ethics, striving for excellence, passion to learn, among others. Taking the graduation oath was followed by awarding of degrees to the graduands, most of whom have already started their professional careers including holding top positions in reputed companies after completion of their PGDM programme.
