A chance to interact with the best

The MBA students of PESIT South Campus recently conducted an inter-college national conference which showcased their organisational skills. 

The final-year MBA students pitched in to organise a seminar as well as technical events after days of research. 

The conference was titled ‘Challenges, trends and opportunities in organizations’. There were nearly 55 participants — including academicians, research scholars, corporates and students — from different colleges across the City.  

“We had three technical sessions for different subjects like human resource, marketing and finance. We had chosen the three best papers in each of these streams. An expert from the industry had been invited to head these sessions,” says Sulekha, a student. Vijayashree, one of the faculty members of the department, says that she was happy that the efforts of the students paid off and the programme was successful.

 “I am very happy that the students were able to showcase their coordination to the experts of the industry. They were able to design banners, certificates and market the programme. At the same time, they were very courteous and managed to tackle critical situations during the conference on their own with little direction from faculty members,” she notes.

The students also got an opportunity to interact with their peers from other colleges and exchange ideas. Bharath, a student, says that the participation level was pretty high.
 “We had students of prestigious colleges coming in for the competition. MBA students from colleges like BNMIT, BMS and Dayananda Sagar Institutions participated in the conference. Along with that, we also had a few PhD holders participate and that was extremely helpful for all the students.

We were free to interact with them and clarify our doubts. It was a great session and organising the event taught us a lot,” he says. The event was a learning experience for the students as it tested their skills. 

“Organising an event like this required us to work as a team. A lot of coordination went into it. We evolved into a team slowly and steadily and that helped us achieve perfection. We also made many contacts, which will help us in the future.

Not only did we organise the event, we also participated in it, competed with other teams and that made us aware about where we stand,” asserts Bharath. All in all, the event was quite a success. It was also a refreshing break from the daily grind of classes and exams.
