Opening a window to the world

The management fest of Community Institute of Management Studies, ‘Summit’, was filled with energy and excitement. Students made sure that they had fun.

Along with various kinds of management events, the fest had a vivacious cultural programme, which added to the good show put up by the students.Events such as ‘Best Manager’, stress interview, business plan, where students had to present their plans in front of the judges, evoked much curiosity .

There were also events relating to marketing, finance and human resources.  Faraz Khan, a final-year student, informs that the first-year and second-year students coordinated and collaborated to put up the show. “We made sure that everyone was involved.

The programme saw a good response and participants from across the City came in for the fest. The theme of the fest was ‘Go Green’ as we wanted to create an awareness regarding the topic. All our events had names of some of the biggest forests in the world,” he says.

The stress interview, which was one of the most difficult events, was an entertainer. Students were given real cases and they had to take
decisions and justify them.

Many were seen handling the pressure, but there were a few who were confounded by the volley of questions thrown at them by the judges.

Pramod, a student, was asked to choose between the CEOs of Infosys and Apple. “I would choose Apple as I feel Steve Jobs is a better manager and has helped the company innovate,” he answers.

Deepak, a final-year student, notes that the fest sharpened the skills of the students and helped them apply their theoretical knowledge. “We could apply whatever we had studied and it helped us in knowing things better. It has also honed the leadership skills in many of us. We are more confident about managing things now,” he says. The fest had an ample amount of entertainment in store for the students.

The cultural show had ‘Mad Ads’ by Faraz and team, wherein they recreated a scene from a popular Hindi film. The dance show was thoroughly enjoyed by the students as the dance group grooved to some of the popular party as well as Bollywood numbers. Solo songs were also presented by the students. The fest was a welcome break for the final-year students who are all set to start another phase of
their lives.
