Letting their hair down

Letting their hair down


Summit’, the annual management fest of CIMS -B School, was filled with energy and excitement and students made most of this opportunity.

Along with various kinds of management events, the fest had a colourful cultural programme. Events such as best manager, marketing, finance etc were conducted to test the skills of the students.Deepak, a final-year student, says that the students from all the three years coordinated and collaborated to put up the entire 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. It was a learning experience and we learnt a lot while organising the programme,” he says.

The judges placed the students in different situations to test them and got the best out of them. While some could handle the situation well, many others felt that they had to be more prepared next time. 

The cultural programme saw the students letting their hair down and enjoying the time with their friends. Students had a dance competition and a ‘Mad Ads’ event, where they showcased their creativity to a large audience. Various rounds saw the students making use of what they had studied in the classes and citing examples from the theories that they have learnt so far. 

Pramod, a student, notes that the fest sharpened their skills 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 of many of us and has helped us in becoming more confident about managing things.  We made sure that everything was in order and we were not behind schedule. Our teachers helped us a lot but most of the work was done by the students. This experience taught us a lot and now we know how to organise things so that the outcome is good. The turnout at the fest was quite good and we are glad that it was a success,” he says.

The fest had an ample amount of entertainment in store for the students. It was a welcome break for the final-year students who are all set to start another phase of their lives. It gave them time to bond with their juniors as well as their teachers. Working for the fest gave them the required exposure and they learnt skills like teamwork, stress management etc.
