Delivering his Chief Guest address at the ASB BBA & BCA Orientation Programme 2020 from virtual the platform, Sh. Suresh Prabhu at first congratulated Dr. Sandeep Marwah, President, Asian Education Group (AEG) for not just starting this college but also for naming all his institutions as “Asian” because “Asia is not just the the largest continent of the world and originator of all major religions of the world but also because Asia will be the future of the world and houses two of the largest economies of the world.”
He then congratulated the students for choosing the right college which, according to him, was “a professional institute offering quality education.”
He then went on to talk at length about how all challenges and changes in the world are related to management, whether it is a problem or a solution. Here, he asked students to “always strive to become a part of a solution and steer clear of becoming a part of a problem.”
Referring to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic he said, “Tomorrow, the world will be a very different world. The pandemic has raised a lot of question marks around our social and economic existence and we need to think completely differently. You would be the first generation who will enter a completely different world. You have the advantage of seeing the past world and so while studying here at Asian School of Business, you must cultivate the ability to think differently and make the world become better tomorrow.”
