While congratulating all the students and the Institute, Mr. Chandra Shekhar Ghosh, MD & CEO of Bandhan Bank, “I have spent a third of my life building businesses and enterprises and this is an area I know best. I shall talk about my learnings of experience as I did not graduate from a Business school. But I do realize that a B-school gives you the ability to think about a problem from different angles and reach at a solution. It provides you the ability to work hard under pressure.”

I hope that the skills gained from here shall lead the students into winning all their personal and professional battles”.

I shall also state that faculty always stay at the heart of learning. IIM Udaipur values such contributions and gives utmost priority to top quality research to build repute and prominence. The institute’s professors have published numerous research papers across renowned journals worldwide. The institute has also taken many initiatives like Vidhyanjali to contribute to the society.
