Globsyn Business School, Kolkata, conducted its 18th annual convocation ceremony on May 22 with about 200 graduating students receiving their degrees and diplomas in various postgraduate management programmes.
Abhijit Roy, managing director and CEO, Berger Paints India Ltd, was the chief guest for the evening. R.C. Bhattacharya, vice-chairman, GBS; and Aloke Mookherjea, former senior advisor, Ernst & Young LLP and chairman, Flakt (India) Limited, were present at the programme.
Bikram Dasgupta, founder and executive chairman, Globsyn Business School, spoke about the New Normal. “Our journey of over 20 years has made us realise that education cannot be linear. Hence, there must be disruption. In this ‘New Normal’, a sense of sustainable development needs to be inculcated in the lives of the students environmentally and socially as they go through their management education. Only then will it become easier for them to adapt to the demands of the corporate world as they step into the industry,” Dasgupta said.

Globsyn Business School has earned a name as a corporate business school over the last two decades for its full-time Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM), which is a two-year course approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE).
“I am very happy to see students of the graduating batch, who have witnessed the seamless transition from a pre to a post-pandemic academic delivery, gained a strong foothold in the corporate world and come back today to attend the convocation ceremony. Like always, this year too, we have experienced an extremely successful placement season with a very high average package. I would like to take this opportunity to express my earnest gratitude to all our stakeholders for their continued support and trust in the brand Globsyn Business School over the past two decades,” said Rahul Dasgupta, director, GBS.
The graduating 2019-2021 batch has seen many changes come into both the educational framework as well as academic delivery. The pandemic has brought them face to face with an unprecedented disruption, making them more adaptable. These students have experienced virtual internships, digital admission processes and diplomas on a Secured Certificate Verification Platform as part of the technology-driven hybrid mode of study. They have been prepared for the world of disruption where they enter as part of the workforce. Their alma mater, Globsyn Business School, has also firmly placed itself on the industry-academia map, making a name as the best in management education in Eastern India, if not nationally.
