NMIMS has been focusing on the four important building blocks, considered as mission statements: knowledge creation, teaching and learning excellence, stakeholder management, and enhancing perception. The legacy that NMIMS has provided to you and the hard work that
you have put in will help you in succeeding. Leave footprints in the sand of time if you want to be remembered.”
“As they say, failure is only a path to success. Define what your success is. Success means a lot of things. It means balance, it means health and happiness. Obviously, achieving corporate success is important, but there is no single path to success. Some of the things that have worked for me: Ride the Wave, try out a lot of things, don’t be afraid, make the changes that you want to make, but at one point stabilize and find out what you really want to do. Find your work-life balance, develop some good hobbies, and develop more anchors, “Chief Guest, Mr. Vivek Arora, Global Head – Strategic Engagements, Sutherland as he delivers his message to the graduate

The global, national, and business economic environment has changed in the last 27 years, certainly for the better in some areas and for the worse in others. However, some things do not change. Just like you are stepping out of an intellectually stimulating academy to a world of opportunities, challenges, and contradictions like we did 27 years back.
