The students graduated from the prestigious institution this year in the presence of chief guest Shri Ajay Piramal, Chairman, Piramal Group and Shriram Group, Professor G.

Congratulating all involved for the historic passing of the IIM Act, IIMB Director G Raghuram said, “IIMB has taken the lead in moving towards grant of degrees. Today we can grant degrees to the Post Graduate Programme in Management students. For the other programmes, we need to go through an exercise to see how best they can fit into a degree-granting mode.”
