- “The session was filled with a plethora of emotions running among the senior batch. The faculty gave an overwhelming speech which made us emotional and brought in a sense of pride for being a part of SIIB.” – Silky Chandra, MBA IB (2019-21)
- “The online mode of bidding farewell to the seniors was unprecedented yet inclusive in nature. The presence of alumni and respected faculty members made it memorable. Sitting miles away, sharing laughter and memories on same platform is a new experience that will be cherished forever.”- Namrata Chowdhury, MBA IB (2020-22)
The virtual stepping out ceremony connected the students from across the two batches with the faculty members and the eminent guests present at the ceremony despite the harsh global situation. It served as a trip down memory lane for the departing batch and gave everyone a reason to celebrate not the absence but the memories created during their two years.
