Of inspiring speeches and cricketing shots – Professor Govind Iyer’s classes at MYRA

How many professors play cricket with students and plan a weekend party with them? We at MYRA were privileged to have Dr. Govind Iyer to not only teach us Cost Accounting, but also share tips on how to play great cricketing shots. He can certainly give some of the current cricketers a run for their money.

At MYRA, we have some of the best faculties across the globe, visiting the campus to share their knowledge and experience in their respective field of study. Our academic year started with the Cost Accounting course that was taught by Dr. Govind Iyer.

Apart from teaching the subject in detail, Dr. Govind Iyer also helped us in improving our presentation and communication skills. Our first set of presentations was based on some of the case studies covering the topics of Cost Accounting. The entire session made us realize the importance of presenting ourselves in the right manner along with the emphasis on our communication skills. Attention to detail was the key point that we students had to take care of while submitting our reports.

Professor Govind Iyer’s classes were very interactive. Each and every student participated actively during his classes. He was very lively in class and always encouraged students to come out of their comfort zones and aim high in life.

During the course, the professor  took his valuable time out to play cricket with the students and also came to college on a weekend to inaugurate the MYRA Premier League, the annual cricket tournament at MYRA School of Business. Age is just a number for Dr. Govind Iyer, who is equally as good in cricket with his batting, bowling and fielding prowess. Post the cricket match, the professor also paid a visit to the students’ hostels and spent quality time with us.

Professor Govind Iyer’s classes kick started our academic career at MYRA and got us going. We were inspired by his speeches in the class and by his boundaries on the cricket pitch.
