It is heartening to note that Daffodil International University (DIU) is committed to playing a significant role in the global educational arena. I take this opportunity to congratulate the graduates, their parents and guardians, the teachers and the alumni on the occasion of the 6th Convocation to be held on 22nd February, 2017.

Convocation is a significant milestone in the life of the graduating students. A man could be worthy of such an event by investing talent, time and, most of all, sincere efforts. For a university, convocation is a valuable yardstick to assess its contribution to the students in particular and the society in general. Hence, convocation is not just a ritual; rather it is a stocktaking event to gauge how much an institution has contributed and how much it plans to give back to the society. I am glad that DIU has been creating skilled manpower since its inception, and I am confident that it would scale greater heights in future.

On this august occasion, I urge the DIU graduates to transfer the knowledge acquired in the classroom to real life situations. Proper utilization of the knowledge gained at DIU will bring glory to the graduating students, the institution, and the world at large. The future of the world depends on generating valuable human resource, and, for this, the world needs quality driven institution like DIU. I am confident that the graduating batch of 2016 would play a significant role in meaningful societal development.

I wish graduates, their guardians, teachers and the Alma Mater, DIU a great success.

With best wishes,
