Vivekananda Institute of Technology hosted ‘Nizvasathi- 2014’, a national-level fest, which was organised by the department of management studies, recently.

More than 500 students from different courses like MBA, PGDM and BBM from 40 colleges took part in the fest.

There were various rounds of tests and activities in the marketing, finance, business quiz, HR and the best manager events.
The fest also saw many cultural programmes like classical and western dances, songs, and a corporate fashion show.

Despite busy schedules and exams being just round the corner, the zeal of audience was immense and they were very excited. 

The participants from the different colleges were impressed by the event and said that the fest had everything that any management fest should contain.

Prathik Shetty, an MBA student of Dayananda Sagar Institutions who was a part of the marketing event said that the fest was awesome.

“There were many interesting tasks that were held as a part of the event including selling a product in the local market. This task was innovative, challenging and hard as many people refused to buy the product,” he said.

Others like Liji Susan John, an MBA student from Kristu Jayanti College who took part in the HR event, said that all rounds in the event provided her an opportunity to test her spontaneity.

 “It was a good chance to understand how quickly one would respond in a given situation. There were many good and interesting rounds included in the events and it was a great experience overall,” she said.

Liji pointed out that the organisers were also were friendly and helpful which made it a memorable experience.

The best manager event is the most highlighted event of any management fest and Abhrajyoti Borah from Jain College said that though there were some time-management issues, the event was held well.

“We all had to talk on a topic and this was a different experience,” he said.
One of the most unique events of the day was the corporate fashion show, and Suraj R Gaikwad of Don Bosco Institute of Technology who took part in this event, said that judges were unbiased.
