IIM’s degree day next week

Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Ranchi, is gearing up for its second convocation on March 4 with invitation cards doing the rounds.

Tata Steel vice-chairman B. Muthuraman, the management pioneer who was awarded Padma Bhushan by the President, will grace the occasion as the chief guest and deliver the convocation address. R.C. Bhargava, chairman of IIM-Ranchi board of governors and also Maruti Udyog Ltd, will attend the programme too.

“The IIM-Ranchi family is looking forward to the inspiring and insightful speech by the Tata Steel vice-chairman. As he is a leader in his field and an experienced business administrator, he can share his success mantra with our graduating students,” said M.J. Xavier, director of IIM-Ranchi.

Muthuraman, who did his graduation in metallurgical engineering before pursuing an MBA from XLRI, Jamshedpur, also completed an advance management programme at European Centre for Executive Development, France. He has an honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters from Loyola University, Chicago, and had served as the managing director of Tata Steel. Given his huge experience, the graduating managers are eagerly waiting to hear him speak.

The ceremony will start at 2pm at Aryabhatta auditorium of Ranchi University. A total of 125 students — 66 full-time students of postgraduate diploma in management and 59 part-timers who had enrolled for the working executive programme — will receive their degrees.

“We are looking forward to the big event,” said Rajeev Gupta, who has completed the executive programme.
