You will be the change agents and catalysts to drive the transition. Whatever career path you choose, it will be a big responsibility on your shoulders. The 10 most important things you will have to keep in mind as students and in your professional lives will be focussing on diversity; learning to listen, without reacting; developing emotional intelligence; networking; time management; being a lifelong learner by upskilling and cross-skilling yourselves; creativity; embracing success and failure and being resilient; entrepreneurship and lastly finding time for hobbies and personal growth and welfare. I would like to end with a quote by Abraham Lincoln, ‘The best way to predict your future is to create it.’ Be the protagonists of your own life and don’t forget to have lots of fun.”

Speaking on the important occasion, Dr. Justin Paul said, The NMIMS MBA programme is designed to
be rigorous and demanding because we believe that true growth comes from stepping out of your comfort zones. You will be exposed to cutting-edge theories, real-world case studies and diverse
perspectives that will broaden your understanding of global business dynamics. The path to success
is a continuous process, you will need to leverage the opportunities arising out of the open economy
and create capabilities. Remember, your time here is not just about acquiring knowledge but
shaping your personality and developing a mindset geared towards lifelong learning. So, I would
encourage you to embrace every opportunity and always remain curious. Be optimistic, be proactive
and be diplomatic. Most importantly, don’t get disappointed if you do not get what you want in your
first or second attempts and be patient. We are thrilled to have you here and are committed to
supporting you throughout this transformative journey. Welcome to our MBA programme. “
