Women empowerment and diversity at the workplace is at the heart of our culture.

It is heartening that NMIMS too has a 60:40 ratio which will translate to more women in leadership roles in times to come. I thoroughly enjoyed interacting with students today and we will look at ways to support the institution including mentoring by our leadership. At ANZ, our purpose is to shape a world where people and communities thrive and we connect with and invest significantly in the communities in which we operate and this is a small gesture from us.”

I truly appreciated the role of esteemed faculty members for their contribution to nurture the talent pool of tomorrow as well as outstanding research in their respective fields. I thank Mr. Venkatraman who has been my student to spare time and share valuable insights on the key to success. The Bangalore campus has certain signature events such as hosting TEDxNMIMSBangalore and several other initiatives which contribute to developing an attitude of how students would behave in a VUCA kind of situation. The habit of continuously seeking new knowledge and opportunities for growth is crucial for personal and professional success”.
Dr. Narayani Ramchandran, Deputy Director, NMIMS Bengaluru joined Dr. Bhat in congratulating the graduating students and said “The boardroom of tomorrow needs to be equipped with a new gen skill set which is aware about ESG and its impact on Business.
