Annual Day & graduation Day
The Manel Srinivas Nayak Institute of Management (MSNIM) organised the annual day and graduation day for its outgoing MBA 23rd batch students (2021-23) on August 7, at the institute campus in Bondel, Mangaluru. Umesh Revankar, executive vice chairman, Shriram Finance Limited, was the chief guest. K V Raghav Kamath retired general manager of Corporation Bank and member of MSNIM governing body presided.
In his address, the chief guest, Umesh Revankar, advised the students to observe the three principles of success: Don’t depend on others to become successful. Don’t look for a godfather for success. Never indulge in office politics to get opportunities to be successful. "Develop a positive attitude in life. To get the job that you desire, first develop the skills that the job demands. Always be prepared to learn new things and update yourself continuously. Accept and adapt to the challenges. Work hard and be honest," he said.
In his presidential address, K V Raghav Kamath urged the students to develop the right attitude and align themselves with the needs of their jobs and customers. "Imbibe discipline. Distractions are many, so focus on the job. Complete your tasks on time or in advance. As a team member, think of team cohesiveness. Communication is more important than knowledge. So, improve your communication skills. Keep pace with the development of your institution and your role in it," he advised.
