Bhartia said in his address at the first Convocation of the institute, “The ability to adapt to change is the hallmark of an effective leader, and being young and talented I want you to create opportunities for yourselves and others. Students representing as many as 19 states and union territories chose IIMV for their management education pursuit, lending the institute a truly national character. We are indeed proud of this distinction”.

The Chairman of IIM Visakhapatnam had 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.”

Hari Bhartia 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. 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.”

To the graduating students and the award winners he said, “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.”

Professor M. Chandrasekhar, Director, IIMV, echoed the sentiment in his own address and thanks the 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.

Listing the successes and achievements of the one-year-old institute, he said, “Almost 70% of IIMV’s students had already acquired work experience upwards of one year. This significantly raised the quality of debate, dialogue, discussions and deliberations both inside and outside the classrooms. It is therefore not surprising that our graduates, moulded as well-rounded professionals, created waves by winning several top prizes in many competitions, fests and quizzes, showcasing their talents with equal ease — be it in case studies or corporate affairs; designing or dancing; marketing or mind challenges; innovation or entrepreneurship; simulation or strategy formulation.”

The relevance and rigour of the academic programme, he said, reflected in the positive attributes, skills and knowledge demonstrated by the graduates, and won them high praise in summer placements. “The industry spread of our recruiters and the roles offered to our students are diverse and challenging, covering eCommerce, Equity Research & Analytics, Banking, Financial Services & Insurance, FMCG, Infrastructure, IT & ITeS, Logistics, Management Consulting, and Marketing,” he said.

“I would like to say that we would be an institute with a spirit of T-20 and philosophy of a Test Match. This means that our academics and research would focus as much on the longitudinal perspectives of the government and near-term challenges of the industry, as on current needs of the citizenry and expectations of the society at large. Work hard in silence. Let success make all the noise, would be our guiding principle,” Prof. Chandrasekhar said to the graduating students in the very first Convocation of IIM Visakhapatnam.
