Diomedes-2013, the two-day national-level B-School meet hosted by Adarsh Institute of Management and Information Technology, received a great response from students across the City. It was the interesting line-up of events that attracted many management students to the fest.
Events like ‘best manager’, HR, finance, marketing, IT and woman entrepreneurship were part of the technical round and conducted on the first day. The cultural programme was held on the second day. Students had worked tirelessly throughout the month to make the event a success. They said that their hard work was recognised by the teachers as well as contestants who came from various other colleges.
The participation level in most events was quite high and the hosts made sure that every event was of a high standard. The questions were set in advance and the judges came from various fields.
Harshal, a student, informed that they had divided themselves into groups so that the work could be done effectively. “Each group knew its work and had set a target. That is how we were able to complete the work on time. We had our set of problems but everyone helped us out. It is because of this that the fest was so organised. We wanted to make it very professional and I’m glad that there were no complaints from the participating teams. The response that we got was overwhelming. Students from prestigious institutions participated in the different events,” he noted.
The cultural programme was equally entertaining.
Students dressed up to participate in the fashion show and portrayed different themes and ideas, adding colour and festivity to the fest.
The dance event had them shaking a leg to popular Bollywood and Kannada songs. Many solo performances were also seen. Chetan, a student, said that it was the concerted effort of all the students that made the fest so popular. “It was a refreshing break from the routine and we are all set to get back to academics. We spent a lot of time planning and preparing for the fest for a couple of weeks and our teachers guided us to a great extent. I hope that we are able to take the fest a notch higher next year. Organising the fest has been a learning experience for all of us,” he summed up.
