IMC graduates hear from global innovator Shekar Swamy

More than 90 Integrated Marketing Communications students celebrated their graduation from the program last month by listening to the words and wisdom of Shekar Swamy, named one of the top 30 global innovators by Internationalist magazine in 2011.


Swamy, an adjunct lecturer in the IMC program, has helped leading companies like Mercedes Benz, Piaggio, Life Insurance Corporation, VISA and Gillette manage and grow their brands and businesses. He is an entrepreneur at heart, and has helped start, revamp and/or acquire 16 businesses in marketing services.

Swamy spoke with students about the idea of "winning in life," and offered his advice to Medill's newest class of IMC graduates.
