Commencement Features Advice From Sanjay Reddy


In India, they’re called Navaratna or sacred gems. And during the 2015 Michigan Ross Commencement ceremonies, Sanjay Reddy, MBA ʼ89, offered the graduating class nine of what he called his most deeply held Navaratna. He said if kept close, there’s no doubt the lessons will have a profound impact on the graduates’ lives.

Reddy is the vice chairman of GVK, an Indian conglomerate with more than 75,000 employees and more than $6 billion invested into energy, airports, transportation, realty, hotels, and pharmaceuticals.
