The 8th Annual Convocation to award Diplomas to the successful PGDM students at International Management Institute, Bhubaneswar was held on 27th February,2021. Shri Anil Agarwal, Founder and Chairman of Vedanta Resources Limited was the Chief Guest of the event.
Mr. Agarwal shared the inspiring story of his own life and the obstacles he faced when he started his career at the age of 19. In his speech, he mentioned the importance of an Entrepreneurial mindset and how the students play a huge role in eradicating poverty and creating employment opportunities in our country. He encouraged the students to support the government’s dream of creating a 5 trillion-dollar economy and creation of privatization policies as he believes that privatization leads to more job opportunities with better output in the economy. He also encouraged the students to show interest in MSME s (Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises) and said, “You have Vedanta's support in that area.”
He concluded his speech by saying that he would always support the students of IMI Bhubaneswar and the whole team of Vedanta would like to have the students on board where they would train our students and give them opportunities for building their own startups. His final message to the students was, “Do it, and the world will be yours.”
We express our sincere thanks to our Chief Guest for having inspired us in the journey of life.
