Prof. Mahadeo Jaiswal, Director, IIM Sambalpur expressed his views while welcoming the largest batch in the institute’s history with such great gender diversity. He said, “At IIM Sambalpur, we focus on three core values that are innovation, integrity and inclusiveness which are based on the teachings of the Hindu deities – Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh. The three lines in IIM Sambalpur’s logo depict those three Is in the form of famous Sambalpuri handloom design. These are the three core values if focused can help Indian B-schools to rank globally. Going forward I believe that these values will be the differentiating factor in the learning journey of the incoming batch. I hope this transformative educational experience for the students will bring about a bigger societal impact in future.”

Swati Agrawal, Partner, Deloitte discussed the management concept of IPL, which she defined as Impact, Purpose, and Leadership. Impact represents the contribution you give to society; purpose represents your inner motivation; and leadership, which is about having a clear vision, showing empathy for others, and motivating others. Failures and friendships are two Fs that are equally significant. Secondarily, students will need to learn how to maintain friendships after failing. Create as many relationships as you can. They will serve as your sources of support in the future.

Dr. Tapan Kumar Chand, President, Vedanta Ltd. discussed the value of moral leadership. He talked to students about his work experiences and the value of moral leadership in a variety of settings. He emphasised the importance of making focused efforts in order to achieve outstanding achievements.

As IIM Sambalpur commences with its new academic year, its mission remains undefeated and focused on nurturing socially responsible leaders who can drive as well as encourage positive change in society.
