UDAIPUR, India  — The Indian Institute of Management, Udaipur, hosted the inaugural ceremony for the 2024-26 batch of its flagship Two-Year MBA program, the largest cohort with 384 students. The batch consists of 32% female and 68% male students. Additionally, 58% of the students have an engineering background, while 42% come from non-engineering fields. Moreover, 60% of the students have prior work experience, whereas 40% are freshers.

Prof. Ashok Banerjee, Director IIM Udaipur, presided over the event. Mr. Sonny Iqbal of Egon Zehnder was the Chief Guest. Sonny Iqbal helped found Egon Zehnder’s offices in New Delhi, Bangalore, and Mumbai. He advises family businesses on succession, founder transition, governance, and family charter development across markets. Sonny co-founded and, until recently, co-led the Firm’s global Family Business Advisory Practice.

Drawing from his extensive experience in the corporate world and the global Family Business Advisory Practice, Mr. Iqbal shared valuable life lessons, stressing the importance of combining hard work and dedication with strategic growth in both horizontal and vertical dimensions. He also urged the students to focus on forging good relationships and managing those relationships wisely at all stages of their careers.

Prof. Rajesh Nanarpuzha, Dean, Programs, emphasised the importance of the student’s role at IIMU, stating:, “Students should think about their first day in IIMU as the start of a new journey which will continue over the next decades in their life. They should use the time at IIMU for creating building blocks for the same. IIMU has an existing culture. Students should always look to shape it for the better. They should leave IIMU better than where they found it.”

In his inspiring welcome address, Prof. Debanjan Mitra, Chairperson of the two-year MBA program, encouraged the new batch to embrace the opportunities and challenges ahead, emphasising the importance of critical and intellectual thinking.

In his address, Prof. Ashok Banerjee, Director of IIM Udaipur, congratulated all the students and welcomed them to a transformational journey at the premier management institute.
