Jaipuria Institute of Management, India’s top MBA colleges efficaciously concluded its academic sessions of 2020-2021 with its 2nd E-Convocation inviting tremendous participation from graduating students, distinguished guests, faculties and alumnus across four campuses from the institute. The E-convocation was graced by the honourable Chief Guest for the occasion, Mr. Rashesh Shah, Chairman and CEO, Edelweiss Group.
A total number of 1023 students from Noida, Lucknow, Jaipur, and Indore campuses were conferred with their management degrees through video conferencing. Despite the slow economy, Jaipuria Institute of Management managed to place 945+ students across its four campuses in Lucknow, Noida, Jaipur and Indore in leading companies this year and the placement is still on for the rest students.
The graduating batch were offered various coveted roles in E-commerce, FMCG, Retail & Manufacturing, Banking and Financial Services, Insurance, Analytics, and Consulting. Some of the leading corporates includes Flipkart, Deloitte, Henkel, HDFC etc.
Addressing the students during the convocation, Chairman, Shri Sharad Jaipuria &, President of Integral Education Society welcomed all the graduates of 2019-2021batch and said “The world has gone through a period of inadequacy, change, adjustments but at the same time the world is adapting to the new ways of living, working, sharing and being. Mr. Jaipuria quoted an example of ‘farmer burring a seed but at the same time it is planted’ instead of feeling buried. By our situation we must realize that difficult situations are not meant to bury us but to plant us. Having hope is having an expectation that something good will happen in the future. The change in learning style and adapting to Zoom is itself an infinite hope, and passed the best wishes virtually to the batch”.
He further added “It is a mixed feeling as we confer management degrees to our students but it is always a proud moment for us as we know that they will shine and keep up the name of Jaipuria Institute of Management in different career paths they choose.”
After the welcome address Vice Chairman, Mr. Shreevats Jaipuria shared the progress report of Jaipuria Institute of Management for the year 2020-2021
“It is my privilege to report the progress of our institution - Lucknow, Noida, Jaipur and Indore during the academic year 2020-21.

After the progress report, Mr. Reshesh Shah, Chairman & CEO Edelweiss Group, “Congratulated to all the students who graduated today from Jaipuria Institute Management and said it is the best to graduate for India because if we look at the vaccination rollout or how things are back to normalcy it appears that the worst is behind us and best is hide of us. Mr. Shah advised students, to incorporate long-term thinking in everything you do. He further added that life is a marathon and treating it like a marathon is very important. The success formula which cherished me a lot is ‘Ideas and values’, Idea is like an accelerator and Values are your breaks and tells you what to do what not to do, and quoted ‘Ideas Create and Values protect’. ‘Be your best-self and Learn, Relearn and Learn’
