    The Convocation - 2009

    All roads led to the Kala Academy on 28th March 2009, where over a hundred deserving

    young men and women, in stylish black robes, walked down the aisle as the graduating batch

    of 2009. Flanked by proud parents on either sides and led to the stage by the Board and the

    Faculty members, these graduates basked in their moment of glory.

    The occasion was graced by the presence of the Chief Guest for the day, Mr. Gurucharan

    Das, the former Vice President and Managing Director for Proctor and Gamble (P&G)

    worldwide.

    The distribution of degrees was followed by the awards for the Best Summer Project

    (Raveesh Bhasin), The Best Dissertation in Marketing (Nekshaan Irani) and The Best

    Dissertation in Finance (Dr.Abhishek Nanda). As the batch of 2009 graduated, we bid

    farewell to yet another set of intelligent minds, worthy competitors, good friends and great

    human beings. We wish the batch of 2007-09 all the very best that life has to offer and a

    promise that they will be remembered as a batch that came, saw and conquered.

    GIM Shines at Tata Crucible Campus Quiz

    GIM Bags Top Honours at TISS Mumbai

    The Goa Institute of Management (GIM) bagged the first place at Manthan 08, a

    National Level Business Event organised by the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS),

    Mumbai. The event facilitated an interface between the Academia, Industry & Students.

    Students from the premier Indian business & technical schools battled it out for top honours

    in a wide spectrum of events across varied functions. GIM was represented by Sunder

    Balakrishnan and Reuben DMello.

    Sunder Balakrishnan won the 1st prize and Reuben DMello was among the Top 6 Finalists,

    in the Claim to Fame competition of Manthan 2008.

    Claim to Fame was a Personality cum Talent Hunt competition wherein the participants

    attitude, literary and performing skills were evaluated. Participants were required to display

    their talent in the field of Dance, Music or Mimicry in the first round. This was followed by

    a quiz on India and questions from the judges.

    Reuben and Sunder played the piano and violin respectively for their individual

    performances. Both of them enthralled the audience with their recitals to such an extent that

    the judges even requested them to perform a duet, which they competently executed.

    Overall, it was an event well-represented by GIM and one that brought forth our students

    diverse talents.

    The duo of Abhishek Jha and Pooja

    Kamath from Goa Institute of

    Management shone at the Tata

    Crucible Campus Quiz, finishing

    Walk For India

    The Goa Institute of Management has always strived not just to impart managerial skills to its

    students but also to inculcate a sense of social responsibility in them. Keeping this in mind,

    GIM took the initiative to Walk for India. Through this event the students get to express

    their solidarity with a relevant social cause.

    In the wake of recent happenings in Goa, the theme for Walk for India this year was Stop

    Child Abuse...Save the Future. Child abuse is a criminal offence and as responsible citizens

    we must do our bit to stop this evil. We believe that every child has the right to a healthy and

    joyous childhood. Through this walk we hoped to spread awareness among the people, so that

    the community can raise their voice against those who deny this right to a child. Walk for

    India this year was held on the 15th

    of August, 2009. Taking cognizance of our duty to the

    society and initiating the process of fulfilling it, is probably one of the better ways to

    celebrate our Independence Day.

    The students walked from Miramar to the Secretariat in Panaji. Over 100 students along with

    the faculty participated in this walk to reiterate the importance of preventing child abuse. It

    was indeed overwhelming to see a number of locals also joining in too. This indicated that

    the students had managed to spread the message making this event a success.
