NEW DELHI, SEPTEMBER 4: Former President of India, Pranab Mukherjee has asked students to inspire others rather than wait to be inspired. Over 300 students from BML Munjal University’s School of Management and School of Engineering and Technology were conferred with degrees on successful completion of MBA, BBA, B.Com. (H) and B. Tech. programmes.

Pranab Mukherjee while delivering the Convocation address at BML Munjal University’s 3rd Convocation, said that aspirational India needs socially conscious and professionally competent youth, who will lend a helping hand in meeting the challenges of growth and industrial development.

Delivering the Guest of Honour address, Ritesh Agarwal, Founder and CEO, OYO Rooms said, “Education is an enabler, a stepping stone. Starting today, challenge yourself to put to test and implement all that you’ve learned during your time at BMU. Both in classes and in the corridors. Do strike a balance – don’t take your education for granted and, at the same time, don’t be limited by it. There are a plethora of opportunities in India today – more than ever before. All that’s needed is for the young to recognize them, step forward and grab them.”

Sunil Kant Munjal, Chancellor, BML Munjal University congratulated the graduating students. He said, “We teach our students to ask the right questions. The idea is to be curious and to be inquisitive. That’s also the reason why we lay strong emphasis on knowledge through experience or experiential learning. We maintain a strict balance between theory and knowledge gained through experience. We see BMU as the nursery for future leaders, where they learn to address and to solve the challenges of the future.”
