IIM CALCUTTA ALLOTTED LAND FOR SATELLITE CAMPUS IN NEW TOWN, KOLKATA
IIM Calcutta wishes to express its heartfelt gratitude to Ms. Mamata Banerjee, the Chief Minister of West Bengal and State Government authorities for the allotment of prime land in New Town, Kolkata to set up a satellite campus.
IIM Calcutta is the first IIM set up in India.
I see IIMC as an Institute of Management – a public institution, which is a nodal agency to bring about a revolution in management practice. To my mind, IIM Calcutta has a significant role in nation building and for providing educational inputs for that purpose, to all sectors of the Indian economy and polity.
Shri N.R. Narayana Murthy, Founder, Infosys Limited, and our Chief Guest today, Shri Shrikrishna Kulkarni, Chairman, Board of Governors of IIM Calcutta; Members of the Board of Governors; Students and their Parents; Alumni and Distinguished Guests; Members of the Press, Faculty, Officers and Staff of the Institute; Ladies and Gentlemen.
Most respected Shri Narayan Murthy, distinguished and honourable guests, our dear graduating students, their families, Director Professor Anju Seth, Deans, Program Chairs, our loved and respected Faculty colleagues, dear Staff members and the IIM Calcutta community. Namaskar.
Before I start speaking to you, my fellow students – and I call you fellow students because I wish to remain a student. I wish to continue to learn and I hope that I have not yet stopped learning.
Chairman and members of the board, Director, faculty, staff, students, families of the graduating students, guests, and, most importantly, the graduating students, please accept my sincere thanks for inviting me to be part of this joyous occasion. My congratulations to you, the graduating students, on your accomplishments and best wishes to you as you start your life as an adult taking on responsibilities for yourself and your society.
