There is a good reason they call these ceremonies a “Commencement exercise”. Post-graduation is not an end, it is the beginning. To celebrate the commencement of a new beginning of the students of 2014-16 batch, iFEEL cherished the moment by conferring post-graduate diploma certificates to the convocates on 26th November 2016. Indeed a moment of honor and pride for all the students, along with the Group Director, Dr.Sanjay Salunkhe, Guest of Honour Mr. Sanjeev Wason (Director of Investment Banking Credit Suisse) and Mr Ajay Kumar Pandey (Sr. Director HR and Head Talent Acquisition, IDFC Bank), Administrative department, faculty members and most importantly students’ parents or parents of the students.
The ceremony started off (casual term and may not be appropriate to use in the written communication) commenced by with lighting the lamp, with a hope to signify brightness to Corporate India followed by a Ganesh Vandana, as a blessing for a new start. To make this day a reminiscent one, the convocates were taken through a small video clip which pictured their old on-campus memories. This created a different enthusiasm amongst the crowd. Dr. Sanjay Salunkhe, Mr. Sanjeev Wasan, and Mr. Ajay Kumar Pandey shared their experiences and gave motivational guidance to the convocates for their future endeavors.
Streaming further, the ceremony witnessed the most awaited moment – presentation of post-graduate diploma certificates to the students of PGDM batch 2014-2016 The ceremony not only felicitated the convocates, but also brought forth recognition to the students of 2015-17 batch, by way of awards for Best Summer Internship, Best Team, and Student of the Year, among other categories.
The ceremony concluded with a group photo and the traditional cap-throwing ceremony. Also, as a contribution to the environment, few convocates came together for planting a sapling. The students continued greeting each other and promises were made to stay in touch forever.
