The programme started by lighting the lamp by the Chief Guest Mr. Chetan Bhagat, Dr.K.L.Chawla, Director AIMT and Dr.D.Pathak, Director ABS. It was attended by around 400 students of new batch representing diverse academic and professional backgrounds. The main purpose of this orientation program is to welcome the new students of the session and motivate them towards their bright future. 

The program successfully provided a one to one interactive platform to PGDM students who shared their doubts and fears with Mr. Chetan Bhagat. Mr. Bhagat shared their thoughts and experiences with the keen management students on opportunities in PGDM. The students also got a chance to interact with faculty members who shared their vast experience in the field of education. This interaction gave the students a clear idea of the current industrial norms and expectations. The Accurate faculties also shared with them tips on becoming effective managers, global leaders and entrepreneurs of the future. The parents attending the event were heralded as one of the most important shareholders in this education process and their presence was acknowledged with great respect.


On this occasion Mr. Chetan Bhagat thanked the students, parents and the faculty members of the institute for giving him a chance to address the students. He further said the day is yours. You have come to this college leaving all the comforts to become something in your life. Sharing his own tough experience of life he said that he approached eight publishers and all of them rejected to publish his book saying that the book can’t be sold, but he did not gave up and finally he got Rupa publisher who published his first book “Five point someone” . Till now more than 10 lacs copies have been sold and it is because he did not give up in life. 

Welcoming the new batch of students with her sheer eloquence Group Director of the institute Ms. Poonam Sharma extended a warm welcome to the students. She explained to the students that this is a B-School with a difference and the students would surely realize the difference after two years when they graduate from the institute and emerge as better individuals-both personally and professionally.
