The Inaugural programme for the Post Graduate Programme in Business Administration of Batch 2012-2014 was held on 7th August, 2012. The function was unique as it had set the tone for commencement of the 18 month programme with pervasive enthusiasm. The IGTC, that day was filled with beaming newly joined students dressed impeccably in their formals. This year the batch comprises 55 students from technical and commercial streams who have commenced their journey of transformation with enthusiasm and hope as it will help them scale greater heights.

The programme commenced sharp at 10.00 a.m. as scheduled and after the traditional lighting of the lamp and a little prayer the students were welcomed by Ms. Radhieka Mehta, Director IGTC. She was happy to receive the new batch and highlighted the importance of pursuing the choice, the students have made with vigorous optimism and sense of purpose. She introduced Mr. Bernhard Steinruecke, Director General IGCC, who gave a brief insight on the training centre’s parent body – Indo-German Chamber of Commerce and its numerous services which it offers to its member companies. Through his enlightening presentation he emphasized the role of the Chamber as being a significant catalyst for the promotion of trade and industrial relations between India and Germany. He ended his presentation with a small German speech which showed how simple it is to learn the German language.

The inaugural session followed by a week long induction has set the students on the learning mode which in turn would mould them in their career path.
