IIM Kozhikode confers 1166 titles and degrees during convocation

At the 25th Annual Convocation held at the Indian Institute of Management, Kozhikode (IIMK), 1166 students received titles and degrees.

From the Silver Jubilee batch of the IIMK’s flagship Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP-25), 470 students received an MBA. Ten students from the Doctoral Programme in Management (Ph.D.) at IIM Kozhikode, 64 students from the the one-year full-time Post Graduate Programme in Business Leadership (PGP-BL 03), 38 students from the Post Graduate Programme in Finance (PGP-Finance 02), and 51 students from the Post Graduate Programme in Liberal Studies (PGP-LSM 02) and Management were also among the graduating students.

Instead of donning the traditional convocation gowns, the graduates this year opted to wear ethnic attire. To commemorate the Annual Convocation’s Silver Jubilee, this change was implemented. In honour of IIMK’s mission and vision for 2047, “Globalizing Indian Thoughts,” all 1166 students were dressed in traditional Indian attire in matching maroon hues. Male students wore kurta pyjamas and mundus, and female students wore kurta pyjamas and sarees. With this, the graduating batch made history by being the first in the history of all IIMs to forgo convocation gowns in favour of formal attire for the graduation ceremony.

Shri V Muraleedharan, Union Minister for External Affairs and Parliamentary Affairs, was the chief guest at the 25th Annual Convocation. The Guest of Honour was Dr. Praveer Sinha, CEO and MD of Tata Power Company Ltd. On this solemn occasion, the dignitaries were accompanied by Prof. Debashis Chatterjee, Director IIMK, Shri A Vellayan, Chairman IIMK Board of Governors (BoG), members of the IIMK BoG, faculty, staff, students, and their families.
