Bringing out their creative side

Bringing out their creative side

Hidden talents

The department of commerce of Kristu Jayanti College recently organised an inter-collegiate commerce fest titled ‘Adroit 2K14.’

The fest did well to tap in the potential of the students and prepare them for the real world. There were more than 200 participants from 36 colleges across the country.
 The college management managed to rope in the best of industry professionals to address the students and give them a feel of how the market functions.

However, the highlight of the fest was the release of a promotional video which was popular with the students.

The fest had some interesting events like ‘human resource’, ‘marketing’, ‘best manager’, ‘finance’, ‘mock stock’ and ‘business quiz’.

The events were well-structured and conceptualised in a format that was interesting for the students. 

Talking about how the fest benefited the students, Fr Augustine George, dean of the science department, said that the students got an opportunity to learn a thing or two from the industry professionals.

 “The students could apply what they theoretically learnt in their classrooms during the project presentation. We saw the creative side of students and this gave them a lot of confidence,” said Augustine.

About 70 projects related to computers, science and mathematics were on display.  The students said that they had a wonderful time exploring the world of technology.

Therise T, a commerce student who participated in the ‘best manager’ event, said, “The event provided a platform to me to explore my skills in argument and counter-argument. It even gave me a chance to critically analyse the situation.” 

Reshma S, a student of Mount Carmel College who participated in the ‘mock stock’ event, felt that the fest did well to bring out hidden skills among students.

Karthik, another participant of the same event, added, “The latest software that was used during ‘mock stock’ created a user interface that gave one a peek into the functioning of the stock interface.”
