Competing in a war zone

Competing in a war zone

The Indian Academy campus has a lot of activities for its students throughout the year.

Each department has its own fest in addition to the annual fest. The just concluded two-day management fest of the Indian Academy School of Management Studies had more than 15 colleges participate in full strength. Most of the participants were in their final year of college and didn’t want to miss a chance to make the best of their last year in college. 

This year, the fest titled ‘Interwove 2012’ was held under the theme of Sangramam, meaning war. The posters and props around the college resembled a mini war zone. Such was the creativity with which the students and management planned and organised the fest.

Among the events that were held were marketing, business plan, HR, finance and best manager. ‘Best Manager’ and business plan were among the most sought-after events. Students confessed that organising the fest was more of a learning experience. Manjunath Kudremath, a final year student at the Academy said that conceptualising and putting together the fest was a challenge in itself.

He said, “We sat together for a week and chose themes and subjects that would be really challenging for the students. We wanted the fest to be really different and hence, a lot of planning went into making it interesting for the students.” Sukumar, a student of R V Engineering College said, “The events were planned in such a way that it really tested the business skills of the students. We can see that a lot of effort has been made into making the fest attractive.”

The faculty too worked hand in hand with the students to ensure that the fest was a grand success. Sheeja Krishnakumar, MBA faculty who teaches HR and Marketing pointed out that this year saw more participation than last year. “We have decided to change the theme every year to ensure that the students get the best exposure.

The competitive spirit and enthusiasm was evident among the students, especially among our students. We hope to make it bigger and better every year,” said Sheeja. Chairman of the Academy, Dr Somasekhar gave away the trophies to the winners. R V College bagged the overall trophy. Kaushik Sharma from MVJ College won the ‘Best Manager’.
