The students of MES College of Arts, Science and Commerce held their commerce fest Chakravyuh recently. The theme of the fest was ‘The Dark Crusades’. More than 35 colleges participated in the fest to test their skills.

The two-day fest saw the participation of colleges like Christ College, PES Degree College, Ammani College among a few.

The preliminaries took place on August 24 and the finals were held on August 25. Events like ‘Best Manager’, business quiz, ‘Mock Stock’ and more were held at the college campus, which was buzzing with participants from various colleges in the City. “The response has been amazing and we have participants from some very reputed colleges. The prelims started from the morning,” said Rahul, the fest coordinator.

Other events included ‘Monopoly’, ‘Annual General Meeting’, ‘Corporate Hire and Fire’ etc. “It is a  great exercise for us as we can apply practically what we have studied in theory.

Events like

‘Corporate Hire and Fire’ and ‘Annual General Meeting’ are some of those events where we need to be practical about our decisions and the way we conduct ourselves in front of the judges,” said Raghavendra, a student of MES College.

The fest was organised by the final-year students of the college and they informed that it was their seniors who helped them in getting sponsorships for the event. “Our seniors helped us a lot before they graduated.

They gave us the details of people whom we should approach for the sponsorship and we approached some companies on our own. It gave us a good exposure about corporate behaviour and etiquette,” said Priyanka, a final-year student.

The judges for the various competitions were brought in from different fields so as to get an unbiased judgment. They belonged to corporate companies as well as educational sectors. “The response for the fest has been great and many more colleges have participated this year than last year.

We are glad that we could pull it off well and we plan to make it better next time as well. Events like ‘Annual General Meeting’, ‘Monopoly’ and ‘Corporate Hire and Fire’ have seen good participation and the students have liked them. We hope that we are able to introduce some more events next year so that we can better ourselves,” summed up Rahul.
