Manipal, Apr 10 (PTI) People who put institution ahead of themselves have always progressed faster than the ones who put themselves ahead, Titan company limited Managing Director Bhaskar Bhat has said.

“Always live your life as a responsible citizen, be self aware and lead a life of integrity,” Bhat said in his address at the 32nd Annual Convocation of the T.A. Pai Management Institute here yesterday.

The convocation saw over 450 students from the three PG Diploma streams: Post Graduate Diploma in Management, PGDM in Banking and Financial Service and PGDM in Healthcare Management graduating.

Prof. Madhu Veeraraghavan, Director of TAPMI, told the graduating students, “for all of you, the next 3-5 years is crucial. Because that is when you face numerous challenges and go through self discovery.”

TAPMI reported 100 per cent placement for the 30th consecutive time where many students from PGDM (Healthcare), PGDM (BKFS) and PGDM (General) had global offers in hand before graduating, according to a TAPMI release.

The average CTC across the three courses was INR 10.6 lakh per year with the highest CTC on offer being INR 23.8 lakh per year.

This season’s placement also witnessed 40 per cent new companies participating in the placement process, the release said.
