Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) president B. Muthuraman on Saturday exhorted young managers to be mindful of the larger needs of society especially in a country like India.

Delivering the Convocation address at IIM Rohtak, he also emphasised that managers should exhibit leadership qualities and act as agents of change in society.

IIM Rohtak Board of Governors and Society Chairman Ravi Kant said: “The interest of investors is shifting towards India which gives IIM graduates great opportunity to make a remarkable difference in successfully steering their respective organisations to becoming world class leaders.”

He said the world economy was in a state of flux and not only global companies were eyeing the Indian market but Indian companies were also acquiring or starting operations abroad. “There is a dearth of managers in India who are capable and have the right mind-set of dealing with the new systems,” he added, appreciating that the first batch had achieved hundred per cent placement at a remarkable average salary of Rs.12.22 lakh.

Director P. Rameshan said the institute is the only IIM located strategically in the National Capital Region and the eighth one to be established in the country.
