Induction program for each new batch entering the corridors of SIIB is conducted every year; but seems as fresh and authentic as if being organized for the first time…
This year too it was an engaging one hour program where Dr. Asmita Chitnis, the Director of SIIB formally welcomed Dr. S.B. Mujumdar – Founder & President, Symbiosis Chancellor, Symbiosis International (Deemed University), Dr. Vidya Yeravdekar – Principal Director, Symbiosis Society, Dr. Rajani Gupte – Vice Chancellor, Symbiosis International (Deemed University) & our Chief Guest for the occasion Mr. Shishir Joshipura – MD & Country Manager, SKF India & led them to the dais for the auspicious lighting of our traditional lamp.
Director of SIIB welcomed the students of 2016-2018 with her words offering challenges, opportunities and great scope for the students to make the most of these two years at SIIB.
Like each year, Dr Mujumdar gave an enlighting speech to motivate each and every youngster of the new batch of 2016-2018 along with nice anecdotes. Dr Vidya & Dr Gupte too followed with the same tempo and in sync with the objectives and right mission of the Symbiosis International (Deemed University) in promoting global citizens.
Chief guest Mr. Shishir instantly formed a connect with the students by way of delivering a very apt and strong message to the batch and truly shared the following five lessons he has learnt through his career that were felt captivating by one and all:
- a) One must be open to change & embrace change
- b) To manage Cultural diversity
- c) Focus more on Emotional Quotient (EQ)
- d) Focus on Results & not on position
- e) Team work is of utmost importance
Finally the much deserved vote of thanks was provided neatly by our Deputy director Dr. Prakash Rao and the event concluded on a right note and well on time.
