7th February, 2016, Kolkata: The 12th Annual Convocation of Globsyn Business School (GBS) was held today at The Park, Kolkata. A total of 198 management students from Globsyn Business School’s Post Graduate Diploma in Management, Post Graduate Programme in Management, Post Graduate Programme in Management (International) and Executive Post Graduate Diploma in Management were felicitated at the event. The Chief Guest at the event was Dr. (Shri) Partha Chatterjee, Hon’ble Minister-in-Charge, Higher Education, School Education and Parliamentary Affairs, Government of West Bengal, while Dr. (Shri) GD Gautama, State Information Commissioner, Government of West Bengal was the Guest of Honour.
The Convocation was presided over by Prof. R. C. Bhattacharya, Vice Chairman, Globsyn Business School. Mr. Bikram Dasgupta, Founder and Executive Chairman, Globsyn Group addressed the audience and awarded the diplomas. Those present at the Convocation included the parents of the students graduating from GBS and the alumni.
Globsyn Business School, with its belief in learning ‘Beyond Education’, also recognised outstanding contributions of several GBS student-volunteers who are a part of the Kalyani Youth Leadership Forum (KYLF). Members of KYLF undertake the B-School’s ‘care for society’ initiatives implemented under the aegis of Kalyani – a Bikram Dasgupta Foundation. Kalyani works with a credo of ‘touching human lives’ through projects aimed at providing long-term benefits to women, the elderly and the differently-abled. ‘Care for Society’ activities form a regular part of the event calendar for the management students of GBS whose leadership skills and managerial abilities are shaped while executing large format community development projects.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Bikram Dasgupta said, “Globsyn Business School believes in learning ‘Beyond Education’. And, it is through elements like Globsyn Annual Lecture Series, which is aimed at corporates; Globsyn Management Conference, which has been designed for academicians; Serendipity that is a learning experience for our students; EMBRYON, which nurtures the spirit of entrepreneurship; and Kalyani that allows students and alumni to ‘care for society’, that we spread the concept of ‘Beyond Education’ among our stakeholders. Similarly, we are also introducing Globsyn Alumni Engage to help GBS alumni become more involved with the school’s activities. I congratulate the students graduating today and welcome them to be a part of Globsyn Alumni Engage.”
With Globsyn’s background of Continuous Innovation in Education, today Globsyn Business School has uniquely positioned itself as India’s only ‘Corporate B-School’, drawing from the strength and diversity of the fast evolving global corporate world. The new economy background of the school, with its AICTE accreditation and CRISIL A** rating, makes it one of the most forward thinking institutions in India today. With an edifice built on Innovation, Research and Technology, coupled with unique initiatives in the form of ‘Knowledge Connect’ and ‘Corporate Connect’, Globsyn is well on its path to create a truly globally networked, corporate savvy, research driven management education system which moves beyond traditional forms of management knowledge dissemination to a research based delivery framework to create ‘Industry Ready Managers’ – an agile group of professionals equipped to operate in today’s technology driven business environment.
