Rameshan, Director, Indian Institute of Management, Rohtak, renowned academician and a mellifluent speaker said “At the onset, I would like to thank Dr. Marwah for inviting me, and I wish a bright future to all graduating students of this batch of ERA Business School. In my long years of experience with IIM, I have witnessed that pedigree of the alma-mater matters little in the corporate world. He amplified by stating that the 15/20 minutes of the interview is more a matter of chance than any other factor. What is important is your attitude and commitment. He added “that you should continuously contribute to your organization’s growth or else you will become irrelevant and may not be required. He further emphasized on some important characteristics for achieving a successful career in the corporate world which included right attitude, proper value system, social commitment and contribution to the society. He reiterated the importance of contributing to the development of one’s organization, the society where we live in and finally the Nation. The gloss and shine of the West should not color the great ethical and cultural values of our country and we should feel proud of being Indians. He specifically referred to IIM Rohtak whose emblem has the National bird of India, the glorious ‘Peacock’ ”. He concluded by saying that whatever position one reaches in life, the institute and the teachers must always be remembered and one should do whatever is possible for the growth of the institute .
