Bringing out the skills

Bringing out the skills

Intense Competition

Funny: A street dance. “Everything that we learnt within the four walls was converted into an event at the fest,” was the common refrain that was heard again and again. 

The various events at the fest had many participants. Each event was designed to test the student’s skills in various areas such as marketing, business management and stress management.

The various events included Best Manager, Business Quiz, HR, Finance, Advertising, Marketing, Retail, IT and Team-building. There were several cultural programmes and a fashion show slated for the second day.

The dances saw students perform Indian, Western and contemporary dance forms. One witnessed some high energy performances.

“What is lacking among the student fraternity today is variety. I’ve noticed that students like to blend various dance forms but don’t work hard enough to make the presentation more attractive,” said Sreedhar M S, the judge for the dance event, who is also a creative choreographer.

About the way the events were planned and designed, Michael Noronha, professor and dean, Academics, says, “every event has been conceptualised to bring out the best in a student. What the student learns in class is done here practically for them to understand the concept better. Stress management is an important aspect. We also test their business skills,” he says.   

The students said they thoroughly enjoyed the fest and what they felt the most was the intense competition. Sneha from IBMR College says, “it is the exposure that we get that’s interesting. There are so many different people we meet and interact. It really enriches your knowledge.
Harish from Global Business School in Hubli says he hasn’t seen such fierce competition back in Hubli, “there’s so much energy and plenty to learn from students here. In Hubli, there’s no such thing as competition and even the exposure is less,” he says.  

St Joseph’s College of Business Administration won the overall trophy. The runner-up was R V Institute of Management.

The ‘Best Manager’ was Divyashree from S RV Institute Of Management and the
‘Best HR Event’ was bagged  by Christ University.
