IIM-Bangalore is the mentor for IIM-V since the foundation stone for the premier management institute was laid at Gambheeram. In this direction, the Chairman of IIM Visakhapatnam delivered a special word of gratitude for IIM Bangalore’s faculty, staff and students, who, he emphasized, have played a significant role in mentoring IIM Visakhapatnam, which includes its placement process. “I compliment and thank the faculty and staff of IIM Bangalore, ably led by Prof. Sushil Vachani and Prof. R. Srinivasan in the past and in the present by Prof. G. Raghuram, for ensuring close alignment of the academic and governance processes of this institute with those of IIM Bangalore, resulting in very high standards, right from the beginning.”
He shared that IIMV aims to make a significant contribution to nation-building. “For a young institute that is just about two years old, IIMV has a well-equipped transit campus, replete with state-of-the-art teaching-learning aids, modern audio-visual facilities and amenities. As an institution of national importance, it’s my wish that IIM Visakhapatnam leverage the vibrant ecosystem of the country and of the state gainfully, offering distinctive academic and research programmes to meet the current and emerging opportunities in the industry and the government. It would look for opportunities for making significant knowledge contribution to the key socio-economic sectors forming part of the National Development Agenda and be a part of the exciting growth story in the country’s socio-economic progress and inclusive development. I am confident that on the strength of its good work, IIMV would soon emerge as an institute of eminence, with demonstrated excellence in management education and research.”
For the graduating students and the award winners he mentioned in his address that, “Entering this institution facing intense competition, you pursued your academic work with great dedication. With your hard work and with dedication to maintain high standards, you earned your degrees and awards. It is a moment of pride for you as much as it is for your teachers, parents and those who had any part in shaping your life so far. The knowledge and skills, and more importantly the moral and ethical values that IIMV encourages, would enable you to make a great start.”
In the ceremony Professor M. Chandrasekhar, Director, IIMV, express his views and stated that “I am fortunate that I came in at a time, when the institute has already made substantial progress under the tutelage of the successive Directors of IIM Bangalore, our mentor. Their inspiring vision and passionate commitment brought this institute into the admirable shape that it finds itself in, today. No less valuable has been the dedication and unstinting support by the faculty (for knowledge transfer and experience-sharing) and staff of IIMB in helping this fledgling institute find its feet, steady itself and graduate into a gallop. I would therefore be failing in my duty, if I do not acknowledge with gratitude at this juncture, how much this institute and I, personally owe to our colleagues at IIM Bangalore.”
