He mentioned about many individuals from social and political movements, who have succeeded in bringing changes in the system. 
Dr. D. Veerendra Heggade spoke on the occasion and said that India is poised for high growth and development. Also, the high level of interest shown by the corporates towards the country is possibly a sign of improved wealth creation. He mentioned that in the modern corporate management, a disturbing feature is the phenomenon of falling moral and ethical standards. When we hear more about scandals and frauds, we feel about the lack of ethical and moral foundation of individuals. 
179 students were awarded PGDM certificates. Five top achievers were given gold medals. Apoorva P. bagged the highest with three medals – Chairman’s Distinguished Student Gold Medal, Ankur Gupta Memorial Alumni Gold Medal for Excellent Performance in Finance and Gold Medal for Excellent Performance in Human Resources Management.

The Eighteenth Annual Convocation of Shri Dharmasthala Manjunatheshwara Institute for Management Development (SDMIMD) was marked with happy smiles and a festive outlook in the Institute campus on Friday, March 22, 2013.

"Life is similar to a Marathon race, not a sprint.  Hence, today's budding managers should find way through their soft skills, patience, persistence and tenacity". In his convocation address the Chief Guest Mr. B. Muthuraman, Vice Chairman, Tata Steel & Chairman, Tata International, asked the passing out graduates not to look at the gross turnover of the companies to assess their strengths. Instead, they should look at what companies are returning to the society. It is the society which is the true owner and not the management or investors or other stake holders. Every business that we do is a part of the society. So, it is important for the future managers to work on the lines of leaving a legacy. There is a serious problem of "Equality" in India. It is not Equality of outcomes but Equality of opportunities. Merit is also governed by social circumstances which call for affirmative action.

Dr. D. Veerendra Heggade, Chairman of the Institute complimented the students for their excellent performance and urged them to be corporate leaders with an emphasis on values and principles. Dr. N.R. Parasuraman, Director, welcomed and presented the annual report the Institute. Dr. H. Gayathri, Deputy Director, presented the vote of thanks.
