A vista to mould better leaders


The management students of BMS College of Engineering celebrated their inter-collegiate fest ‘Quest’ with an important message – that of saving tigers.

More than 30 colleges participated in the events based on finance, marketing and other subjects.

“Our aim was to make the students aware that there are very few tigers left in the country and the need to save them. All the events were named after the big cat family and even the groups were named accordingly. We had many colleges participating and the two-day event received a very good response,” says Aumprakash, a final-year student.

Students had organised a wide range of interesting events like deriving HR concepts from Indian mythological tales. “We showed the groups a clipping from the Ramayana and they had to link the HR concept in that particular clip. We had judges from various institutions so as to have fair results,” adds Aumprakash.

The finance event saw the students coming up with an innovative financial product model, which had to be presented in front of the judge. The judge then asked questions based on the presentation. Similarly in the marketing event, the students were told to pick up a chit, which had a topic, and they had to make an advertisement based on that topic. They also had to enact the advertisement.

Sahana, a final-year student, says that organising the fest has made her a better leader. “I have also learnt a lot in terms of applying the concepts that I have learnt in the theories. The entire process of planning the events and monitoring them has taught me a lot. It is actually a lot of fun,” she adds.

For students, thinking of innovative events was quite a challenge and it required them to be very creative. “We had to keep many technical aspects in mind and also consider the fact that there will be different sets of students. All of them might not have the same aptitude and the same level of intelligence.

The events were structured keeping in mind all kind of students.
We also had to figure out the criteria for evaluation so that the results were not biased," explains Arun Kumar, a student. The fest saw students innovating, experimenting and learning various concepts of management.
