Shri Rajendra S Pawar, Chairman & Co-Founder, NIIT Group and Founder, NIIT University

Today against all circumstances and fighting through a pandemic I see a generation of brave, fearless graduates. I wish I could have done it in person but nonetheless I heartily congratulate each one of you for your unwavering determination and all the fruits of your hard work. I hope you carry this strength and determination into your future pursuits and may luck always be in your favour. Outside is a new world waiting for you, a world full of dreams, opportunities and possibilities. It’s a world which can get overwhelming at times. Remember to stay rooted to your goals and let yourself grow and explore. Spread your wings as you embrace your passions but never fly away so high that you forget your own values. Take pride in who you are, in where you are and of what you’ve made of yourself. Take guidance from your past and learn from your mistakes. This journey will lead you through many paths and across various people. You may face many setbacks or struggles along your road. Never let that adversity win. Fight hard and smart to achieve your goals. Learn from those learned influences that might cross your paths. Always stay open to learning new things. Use your skills to provide similar guidance to those in need. The fruits of your labour will always be sweet. Stay focused, stay happy and make NU proud!

Shri Vijay Thadani, Co-Founder, NIIT University, Vice Chairman & Managing Director, NIIT Limited

My dear Graduating NUtons, Heartiest Congratulations to you on this unique milestone that denotes a critical achievement in your life’s journey. The world that you will experience after graduation, perhaps represents the maximum volatility, uncertainty and complexity that humankind has experienced so far, While your contemporaries elsewhere would be nervous, I am confident you are looking forward to the prospect of traversing the journey ahead of you, of boldly exploring areas which no one has attempted before. Your companions in this journey will be the repertoire of diverse competencies that you developed as a NUton, of rich multidisciplinary learning with a strong foundation of human values; of innovative problem solving with collaborative project work; research assignments at the campus coupled with the real life experience of working in the industry on one hand and underserved communities on the other. Do remember that you have a responsibility on your shoulders. You have to help rebuild this world and make it a better place than it was before the current pandemic. Quoting Mary Kay Ash: “Don’t limit yourself to what you think you can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe in, you can achieve” And finally, cherish the moments you were on campus, cherish the relationships that you built many of which will be lifelong bonds. Keep innovating and make NU proud!

Prof Prabhu Kumar Aggarwal, President, NIIT University

My heartiest congratulations to the graduating class of 2020.0n this very special day, I take this opportunity to wish each and every one of you a very successful and full filling journey in the years ahead. Enjoy today, celebrate your achievements, cherish the memories … you have earned it! As you transition from College to your next phase in life, you will face many challenges, as well as also get many new opportunities; I am confident that time years at NU has well equipped you to face them both with intelligence, hard work, and empathy. I hope you will remain forever curious, never give up your quest to learn, follow your passions, be humble and embrace humanity as your religion, and always work to help the less fortunate than you. Finally, I wish that you all leave your individual marks in society and make NU proud by becoming not just the best citizens OF the world, but best FOR the world.
