Ahmedabad, April 24, 2018

Nirma University held its 25th Annual Convocation Ceremony today at its premises. 604 students were awarded degrees as part of the convocation. In his words of encouragement, Chief Guest Shri Deepak Kumar Hota, Chairman & Managing Director, Bharat Earth Movers Ltd., Bangalore, said that, “The learning curve is also the earning curve,” and your augmented proficiency will help you to climb the corporate ladder faster. You should gain access to learning opportunities that your organization offer or take a course online, search for an expert video or podcast to learn a quickly needed skill that fit your individual needs and schedules".

Around 22 Ph.D. students, 252 MBA students (Full Time), 49 MBA students (Family Business & Entrepreneurship), 48 Five-Year BBA-MBA Integrated students, 1 BBA student, 105 B.A. LL.B. students (Hons.), 57 B.Com. L.L.B. students (Hons.), 55 BBA L.L.B. students (Hons.), 3 Master of Law (LL.M), 4 B. Tech. students, 1 Diploma student, 3 M. Tech. students, and 4 M.Sc. students were conferred degrees. Dr. Karsanbhai K Patel, President  of Nirma University, presided over the function.

Addressing the students, Mr. Hota said “First-time managers need to learn how to reallocate their time so that they not only complete their assigned work but also help others perform effectively. You cannot allocate all of your time to seizing opportunities and handling tasks yourselves. You need to shift from doing work to getting work done.”

In his encouraging words, Mr. Hota said, “You should not feel depressed if you seem to be falling behind, it’s not just your time yet! You should not compare yourselves to everyone else. What tomorrow holds in store for you, you would not know! The important point to remember is that you have chosen your own path. Along that path you would choose your own way. Everyone has something different and unique in them and you won't reach where you want to be, all at the same time. You therefore, need focus more on the outcomes, i.e. creating meaningful, purposeful and fulfilling lives for yourselves. And also learn to use that to make an impact; a difference in the lives of others and the society. That is true success.”

As part of convocation ceremony special awards were given to outstanding and dedicated students of Nirma University as an appreciation of their hard work. A total of 24 scholastic medals were awarded across various categories — First, Second and Third rank (overall), First rank (each specialization) as well as special honours to outstanding students (each programme). The medals were bestowed by the honorary Chief Guest.
