Congratulations Alumnus Pawan Munjal, one of India’s foremost corporate leaders, on being awarded with an honorary doctorate at the 16th Convocation of the National Institute of Technology (NIT), Kurukshetra.
The degree was presented to Mr. Munjal – the Chairman, MD, and CEO, of Hero MotoCorp, the world’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer, by Jagdish Khattar, the Chairperson of the Board of Governors, NIT, Kurukshetra, and its Director Dr. Satish Kumar.
NIT, Kurukshetra is Munjal’s alma mater, having graduated from here with a degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1976.
Speaking to the students and other dignitaries at the institute, Munjal said, “The real world outside this campus is going to be very demanding and challenging. You will, therefore, need to be prepared, mentally and physically – to face the challenges and hold your own. Don’t just be managers and try to manage and maintain the status quo, but be the agents of change and disruption.”
Pawan Munjal was also the Chief Guest of the Convocation ceremony and visited the campus and its facilities. He later interacted separately with the students.
