The theme for the fest was ‘Shatranj — Endeavour Triumph’ and the different events were named on the various facets of the game of chess.

While Shah was the best manager round, Sarbaz was the team-building event.     Yoddha was the ice-breaker and Rukh was the finance event to name a few.

The fest had a formal opening in the morning by MLA Dinesh Gundu Rao while the guest of honour was Janardhanam, director, Canara Bank School of Management Studies.

Principal Joyce Sunder was also present on the occasion.

Under the guidance of Praveen Kumar, the head of the Department of BBM, the students did a great job organising the fest with various colleges from across the City.

Said Subanshi, a final year BBM student, “Each event has various rounds testing the participants’ overall abilities.”

Students from colleges like Al Ameen, Mount Carmel, PES and Christ University turned up to take part in the fest.

Said Sumedha, a student of MCC who was participating in the business quiz, “The questions are extremely good and our team has been doing well. The fest has been organised really well.” 

One of the most popular events was the best manager round, which had various other rounds like PR round and HR round.

“This event aims to bring out the corporate social responsibility and business ethics of the participants. We have various rounds that test their knowledge, skills, abilities and ethics,” explained Rashmi, a final year student and one of the organisers.

“There is an elocution to judge how aware they are and how they stand up for their views,” she added.

About the main aim behind the fest, she said, “We held this fest to see how students are trained to meet the requirements of the  corporate world. This is not just in terms of knowledge or competitiveness but also how ethical they are when they start their own business,” she summed up.
