Dr. Munshi emphasized the need for universities to train students to solve immediate problems and to continually innovate and architect for challenges that may emerge in the future. He believes that this is the key to success for institutions today.

The function was presided over by Prof. Rangaswamy, the Registrar of the university, who praised the efforts of the Department of Management Studies in conducting this high-profile intellectual exercise.
