For the first time, the in-person convocation also witnessed the graduating students donning stoles emblazoned with the IIMA logo. The decision was taken keeping the city’s rising temperatures in serious consideration. Due to the sweltering heat and outdoor event, the convocation commenced at 7:30 pm. With a brief convocation ceremony on the 13th April, only the gold medallists were awarded on the stage. The degrees to students were presented by the respective programme chairpersons at RJM Auditorium on 14th April.
We wish all the best to the graduating students in the journey ahead.
