Gyan Diksha Samaroh
Every year the new students joining the SRISIIM are welcomed to the family through Gyan Diksha Samaroh. The new batch participated in a week long induction program wherein students were introduced to the place, culture and management ethos of SRISIIM. A series of lecture by eminent personalities from corporate and academic background was arranged for the students to orient them for two years of Management Education and to coach them on life skills. The induction program culminated with Gyan Diksha Samaroh organized on 2nd September 2017.
The programme started with the traditional auspicious lamp lighting ceremony as a tribute to Maa Sharadamba. The chief guest for the programme was Dr. R. Seetharaman (Group CEO, Doha Bank). The other dignitaries who graced the occasion were Prof. (Dr) Colin Coulson Thomas, University of Greenwich, Pankaj Dubey (CEO and Whole time Director of Polaris India Pvt. Ltd.), N.K Chaudhary (Member of B.O.G, Sri SIIM). Dr R Seetharaman addressed the students on the importance of building up management abilities based on Bhagwad Gita principles. Rev Swami Parthasarthy welcomed the new batch and declared open the session for batch 2017-19.
Students from the senior batch were also awarded for their excellent performances in academics, research and extracurricular activities. Its the tradition of Sri SIIM every year to nominate students as the Chief Class Leaders, Deputy Class Leaders and Group of Mentors from the second year students. This year too, the tradition was followed and Mr Shashank Sharma (CCL), Preeti Juriyani(DCL) and Aditya Negi (DCL) were nominated.
Sri SIIM has its own publication house, Sri SIIM Research Press which regularly publishes world class research journals, books and newsletters. On this day Sri SIIM released “ Abhinav Prabhandan”, its international research journal. It was also announced that “Vivek management” a student managed journal will now also be available on online mode.
The program was followed by high tea for all. Amongst much cheer and happiness the new batch of students started on their journey of two years of learning global managerial practices synergized with Indian Ethos and wisdom for management through uniquely designed Vivek Management program of SRISIIM.
