The event was kicked off by the alumni, Gayatri Bhatia (Founder and CEO of Saucery) who addressed the attendees by accrediting the role of SP Jain School of Global Management that shaped her career as an entrepreneur.
BBA alumni, such as Aquilia Gonsalves (Intake of 2010), Akanksha Manglani (Intake of 2010), Varun Agarwal (Intake of 2010), KetakiVerma (Intake of 2012), Varun Shah (Intake of 2012), Prabhsehej Sethi (Intake of 2012), Vidhan Rasiwasia (Intake of 2012) and Spruha Mehta (Intake of 2010) also addressed the alumni meet.

Taking the proceeding of the event forward after the encouraging stories of alumni, Dr. Marion Igarashi graced the meet by talking about entrepreneurship based learning alongside the program.
She emphasized on the fact that to become job ready as a global citizen, cultural intelligence and financial intelligence must be overpowered by cognitive flexibility and emotional intelligence. According to her, both the factors are helpful in surviving and working with people in teams.
Dr. Igarashi further added that SP Jain School of Global Management is not just interested in developing your brains, but it emphasizes in the transformation of the person in his/her entirety.

“Because of SP Jain we are kind of fearless in the sense that we are not scared to uproot ourselves from where we are so firmly rooted and start from scratch.” – Akeeliya
“You have to go out there and do all the things yourself. You have to just be fearless and take charge of it and do it and that is what SP Jain School of Global Management I think has taught all of us.” –Akanksha
“What SP Jain gave me in all of this was the confidence to take up these positions. It’s not easy just with a BBA degree to get the respect in your own company.” – Varun Agarwal.
