"Don't get attached to your creations", Kishore Biyani, CEO, Future Group advises the new PGPB batch of MISB Bocconi.
MISB Bocconi, the world’s only offshore presence of Università Bocconi, one of Europe’s premier universities, started their fourth batch of Postgraduate Program (PGP) in Business. With foreign universities gaining popularity in India, MISB Bocconi has received an overwhelming response. The international exposure helps students to succeed at a local and global level as well as to grasp over cultural intricacies.
This year’s batch comprises 62% engineering students and 32% women students with an average work experience of 1.3 years. The students come from diverse backgrounds including doctors, CAs and CFAs from various top institutes like IIT, NIT, Delhi University amongst others.
PGPB is a full-time programme that brings the expertise of SDA Bocconi School of Management in delivering top class management education, combining strong Indian identity with a global perspective.
While inducting the new class, Dr. Himanshu Rai, Dean, MISB Bocconi said, "Come out on top by being true to yourselves and your abilities – that’s how you look into the face of competition. Recognise, who you are and your strengths and weaknesses, and work on both. Learning and bearing an active witness to your experiences will keep you in touch with your being and your goals. Never let the fire go out. There will be ups and downs. Just keep going when it feels the hardest to go on."
Speaking to a vibrant class of students representing 13 states, Kishore Biyani, CEO, Future Group, said that the journey is all about business and life where both converge at one point. He emphasized on design in the day to day behaviour and habits while looking at India from the younger generation’s point of view. He further added how every Indian spending in our country will lead to a 2% GDP growth.
Mr. Alessandro Giuliani, Managing Director, MISB Bocconi spoke to the class and said, “ We as a school will ensure that these two years of your life are the most rewarding ones for you. All of you should feel proud of yourself for reaching this point and enjoy the journey ahead.”
The PGPB program draws heavily from the curriculum, research outputs, faculty and experience of SDA Bocconi. It is an innovative mix of lectures, international experiences and connections with the industry that will shape tomorrow’s top managers and entrepreneurs.
