Intra-collegiate fest

Mount Carmel College hosted Capitaux, the commerce intra-collegiate fest on August 26 and 27 and Illuminart, the humanities intra-collegiate fest, on August 27. This year, these competitions surpassed expectations, witnessing enthusiastic participation from the students. 
The Commerce Association secretaries Deepthi Hegde, Tanya Veigas and Rebecca Vedavathy left no stone unturned in making ‘Capitaux’ a success, with the help of the commerce lecturers. The events held included business-card making, business quiz, product launch, crisis management, brand equity and a collage competition. 
The events were judged by lecturers from SJ PU College and SBMJ PU College, who evaluated the calibre of the students. The response from the students was overwhelming and a science student was found remarking that she never thought business and commerce would be that interesting. The first place in the fest was won by the II MECA students.
As part of the Illuminart, the Humanities Association organised three events, Aircrash a personality contest; debate on the topic ‘Is reality TV far from culture reality?’ and a collage competition. The events were judged by the faculty and the cheerful bonhomie that pervaded the campus seemed to highlight the enthusiasm, with which arts students participated in the fest.

Corporate talk

In an effort to bring alive a corporate boardroom in class, Jain CMS has started a series of CEO talks and seminars for its students. The talks and seminars are being conducted along the course of the BBM semesters and are aimed at giving students a sneak peek into the professional world and what to expect. This initiative is in co-ordination with Corporate Fox. The first talk in the series was presented by G Ravishankar, ex-director of Kwality Biscuits and currently the founder and MD of ePeople HR services.
The seminar focussed on core competence and Ravishankar spoke about the importance of recognising the self and finding the competency area that each of the students can focus on.
Rohit Machado, a final year student of BBM at CMS said, “This programme is a great opportunity for students as it gives us an access to the brilliant brains in the industry and also an edge over the rest, as someone experienced talks to us in these sessions.”
