You have been here more than a week and feel more than welcome already. But a welcome is not a welcome unless it is an OFFICIAL welcome, right? And even when you get an official welcome, what’s the point if it isn’t sprayed across feeds and timelines and walls of people?
Though it has been some ten days at IMNU, your life at IMNU began long back and you were linked to us via all the social platforms. So a welcome on our first mode of interaction is a must…
IMNU 2015-17 this is your Official Social Media Welcome! (Yes the link will be shared on the Institute of Management, Nirma University Facebook page and our official IMNU_Ahmedabad Twitter account)
The acclimatisation period in the form of the induction programme is now over. Now begins a two-year long roller coaster ride. Yes MBA life at IMNU has its ups and downs. There are going to be great times, there are going to be tough times. Phases are going to be super-hectic and schedules will go haywire. You will be tried and tested. But you need not worry because it’s all part of the design. It is part of the bigger scheme of things, i.e., to prepare you for any challenges that may lie before you in the future. Consider these two years like the training Bruce Wayne went through to become The Batman.
These will be the most hectic, adrenalin-rushed, enjoyable couple of years that you people will go through. Make them count. You are here for a reason. Because you deserve this.
Be confident. Learn. Grow. Achieve. Be a Corporate Super Hero!

It was an occasion embracing the joy of a festival, surrounded with the enthusiasm of pride. 25th of April 2015, a memorable day for many of the fellow Nirmayan’s as they bid adieu to their two year journey of MBA. Yes it was the ‘Convocation Ceremony’. The 19th Convocation of Nirma University was celebrated with utmost happiness in the presence of Chief Guest Hon’ble Mr. Justice A.M. Ahmadi, former Chief Justice of India.
After welcoming the Chief Guest, Dr. K. K. Patel, President, Nirma University declared the convocation open. The students of the Institute of Management and Law received their degrees and along with them, 12 students from the Institute of Management, Pharmacy, Technology and Science were conferred the title of Doctor of Philosophy.
Students came up one after the other to live that moment of ‘Being Convocated’. Meanwhile, the family and friends of these students had that one-of-its-kind smile on their face. That smile of pride and exuberance. It was a rare moment, when having accomplished one of their dreams, the students headed towards achieving many other. They now have with them the precious learning and relations of last two years. There were lots of “We will meet soon” and “You will do great ahead”. No one knows what life may bring for them but undoubtedly, these two years will always be with them for their endeavors ahead.

“Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.”
On the eve of 14th March 2015, we celebrated the new beginning of the lives of the 2013-15 batch. Following the tradition of IMNU, the junior batch said goodbye to their seniors and wished them luck for the journey ahead.
Every junior felt the sorrow of the moment. The seniors who have been guides, mentors, friends and sometimes also partner-in-crime for the juniors, are now on the journey outside the gates of IMNU. Every junior would agree that they have helped us in every bit and in every way along different phases of our MBA journey.All the juniors have tons of memories of their times with the seniors. They always stood as a guide, be it the guidance for stream selection or the guidance to nearest food joint. Undoubtedly, nothing would be the same, a few days from now. Be it the sports ground or the Student activity council, the mess or hum sab ka pyaara “RD”. There will be a void in everything.
However difficult may the Good Bye part be.We are extremely happy for all the seniors who are now moving ahead in their lives. And with all the love we had for them, we danced to the full that night. There were photographs taken allover to hold on as many moments as possible. The enthusiasm to wish luck for a new beginning was so much on everyone’s mind that even the Rain god wasn’t able to contain and yes it rained in March…..
