The power of this vast network and a sense of bonding with the programme and with SPJIMR were on display through the day-long celebrations.
The series of events through the day on 25 Feb 2017 (Saturday) were put together under the title ‘Genesis’, the name indicating how the celebrations tapped into the very roots of an innovative programme that has grown to become a premier offering for FMBs.
The large focus of the day was on going professional, retaining and attracting talent and leading not only successful but also sustainable growth-oriented businesses to contribute to and also benefit from India’s growth story.
