We at St Francis Institute of Management and Research (SFIMAR) are preparing our students to become globally engaged citizen leaders who are competent, committed, competitive and compassionate. As businesses move towards adopting 21st century tools, and disruptive technology builds a strong foothold in industry, change is accelerating, the call for lean management practices and greater transparency has grown. SFIMAR places high emphasis on industry collaborations and developing an entrepreneurial spirit in its students. The rigorous curriculum, research and creative activities conducted by our highly qualified and experienced faculty, have groomed our students to be confident in the knowledge of their core discipline, adept at understanding and working with others from different fields. As future leaders, they have understood the need to be enablers of positive change- to implement sustainable solutions and act ethically. These talented individuals have embraced the concept of Stewardship- that is, putting aside self-interests for the betterment of others, taking care of resources and being passionate about leaving things better than they found them. These qualities coupled with the determination and innovative mind-set of our future management leaders, make them a fitting choice for today's dynamic businesses.

I am very proud to resent our new cohort of MMS and PGDM graduating students who are well-equipped to make a significant contribution to business transformation. I wish them great progress in their career.
