The function was also graced by Kiran Mazumdar Shaw, Chairman of Biocon Limited; Adi Godrej, Chairman Godrej Group; and Dominic Barton, Global Managing Partner, Mckinsey.
Complimenting students, Godrej said, “Young graduates you are graduating at a time when India has opened great opportunities for you to contribute to nation building and achieving global eminence on the strength of your innovative enterprising geniuses, now that the Digital India, Startup India and Make in India missions are inspiring all of us to build India of our dreams, you therefore have a bright future ahead.”
