“The world today is characterized by volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity or VUCA for short – a term coined by the US military. For business managers today this manifests itself in rapid urbanization, climate change, demographic shifts and technological advancements. Managers therefore would need to learn how to derive more (results) from less (resources). They would need to work in an ecosystem where there are more connected devices than people and they would have to contend with anti-globalization and increased tribalism”. This was the advice of Dr Rajeev Gowda, RajyaSabha MP. Dr Gowda was addressing a packed auditorium occupied by alumni, students and faculty of MYRA on the occasion of ‘MYRAcles Day’ – the first Alumni meet of MYRA on Saturday March 4. He shared a few anecdotes about his alma mater and the ‘old boys’ club reiterating the priceless value of Alumni in institution building.
Earlier, welcoming MYRA Alumni who are currently working in reputed organizations like Nielsen, KPMG, UB Group, HCL, GMR Group, Deloitte, E&Y and Goldman Sachs, Dr Shalini Urs – founder and chairperson mentioned that an alumni meet is an occasion for an institute and its alumni to honour and celebrate the mutual commitment towards each other. Taking those present on a journey starting with the conceptualization of MYRA till now, Dr Urs beamed with pride as she interacted with the Alumni about the progress they have made since graduating.
MYRA was one of the recipients of the ‘Economic Times Best Education Brands 2017’ along with IIM Indore, IIT Delhi and SP Jain.
