Indian Institute of Management Indore PGP-UAE Batch of 2012-2014
It has not even been a year since you welcomed us into the fold. But here we are today, preparing for your farewell, trying to gather enough memories in the next few weeks, to last a few decades. It is that bittersweet time of life, where you finally look forward to those niche jobs you have worked your way to, while saying goodbye to teachers, colleagues and the best of friends, many of whom you might not come across, as often as you will wish. But these are not bonds that shall break easily. Sometimes people think that an MBA is where the student learns; teachers teach and points are produced at the end of two years. But it is about so much more Because how shall you forget those days spent at the PI shop, or the rush to beat the 11.30 P.M hostel deadline? As the flag-bearers of IIM Indore abroad, you have gone through several highs and lows together, and have created a platform on which future batches shall continue to flourish, years from now. For the batch of 2014, it has indeed been a momentous journey. Two years ago, you joined as aspiring marketers and financial top-dogs, and now you shall pass-out; ready to take on the world again. But as you look ahead to a rosy future, we have created this yearbook for you to store in a cosy corner, hoping that in moments when you seek so, it gives you solace and brings out a smileâ€Ś..
Media and Corporate Communication Committee On behalf of batch of 2015
â€œThey're not that different from you, are they? Same haircuts. Full of hormones, just like you. Invincible, just like you feel. The world is their oyster. They believe they're destined for great things, just like many of you, their eyes are full of hope, just like you. Did they wait until it was too late to make from their lives even one iota of what they were capable? Because, you see, these people are now fertilizing daffodils. But if you listen real close, you can hear them whisper their legacy to you. Go on, lean in. Listen, you hear it? - - Carpe - - hear it? - - Carpe, carpe diem, seize the day, make your lives extraordinary. - Dead Poets Society
