The event was a part of IMT Ghaziabad’s constant focus on improvising management education amidst shifting dynamics of globalisation and increased competitiveness. The initiatives revolve around the pillars of Knowledge, Action and Self-belief. Consistently ranked amongst the top 10 management schools in India, the strong foundation has been laid by the distinguished faculty, committed students and competitive ‘learning environment’ that has resulted in this excellence.
Ad-guru Prahlad Kakar stressed on the importance of following our passion during the course of our professional lives, said: “Young managers begin planning for their lives when they start doing their MBA. What they forget is to ask that what is it in life that makes it worth living. Life is about the value that we create for ourselves.”
