IMG-20170202-WA0018 DSC_0432 DSC_0494 IMG_4471 IMG_4489 IMG_4493

The IILM institute for business and management ,GURUGRAM organised a college fest MOSAIC’17 on 14th and 15th of February 2017 . It is a two day fest with a perfect amalgamation of  sports, business and cultural events where students work  hard to make it a success.

Out of so many events IILM has organised its flagship event ‘DALAL STREET’- it is a share market where buying and selling of shares take place. Earlier there was nothing digital so as a vegetable market there is a share market where in a big hall the transactions between the parties take place. The demand and supply decides the prices of the shares like a vegetable market people are shouting the prices of the companies share and the interested buyer purchases the shares. Sometimes people negotiates with the seller. A similar environment was created in the college event also teams brokers were running for their teams helping or  guiding them in deciding the shares to purchase or sell. The  dalal street atmosphere was similar, everyone was shouting the company’s shares they want to sell or buy. Teams were negotiating on the prices and fighting to earn the maximum profit out of it. There were 3 rounds were teams can buys or sell shares either from exchange or from other teams . In each round the news s flashed and teams have to take decision accordingly on the purchase or sale of the shares. After round 3 teams cannot purchase the shares and the 4th round news is flashed followed by it final price of the shares is also flashed. The team holding maximum net worth wins i.e the one having maximum amount of cash in hand and the maximum value of shares in hand. The event dalal street shows us even after so many technology advancement in the share market the real fun is in the open share market where you can negotiate in person  to purchase or sale of  the shares.

It was a great opportunity for us to be a part of the dalal street team and also learned a lot about how the news effects the share prices of the company, how to minimise your risk with diversification it was like a live project with lot of fun and learning at the same time. Before entering the corporate life getting a chance to work in a practical way which taught us how to work in a team, how to guide the other team members, how to deal with the team mates not working and feeling happy at the end when the team work gives the positive results.

At the end we would like to thank VISHAL GOEL SIR for keeping faith in us and giving us the opportunity to work with him also supporting and helping whenever required  and also the  whole team of dalal street for the hard work.

Industry Academia conference 2017 by CINQUE

Indian Management Education: Towards Next Horizon

“Collaborating Strategy between Industry and Academia”

 

CINQUE has conducted one of its kind Industry-Academia conference, “Indian Management Education: Towards Next Horizon (Collaborating Strategy between Industry and Academia)”at The Indian International Centre. With a clear focus on ensuring that Academia and Industry work together like partners rather as than adversaries, the Conference is committed to come up with an implementable agenda and ensure periodic reviews with all stake-holders to ensure the continuity of the exercise.

A closer look at the management schools throws an interesting pattern where B-Schools are more concerned about the number of students graduating rather than their quantity. Corporates also spend significant time, energy and resources to make this talent pool worth contributing. So, the need of the hour is to devise strategies to overcome this shortcoming.

The Key speakers of the conference included:

  • Padmashri Dr Pritam Singh, (CEO-Lead Center and Ex-Director IIM-Lucknow, MDI) who has kindly consented to be the Conference Patron.
  • Mr S. Y. Siddiqui (Chief Mentor – Maruti Suzuki India Limited)
  • Mr Manoj Kohli, Keynote speaker (Executive Chairman SoftBank Energy)
  • Mr Arun Malhotra, Guest of Honour (MD, Nissan Motor India Pvt. Ltd.) and,
  • Dr H. Chaturvedi (Alternate President-EPSI and Director-BIMTECH)

The four broad themes which the Conference endeavours to address in the field of Industry-Academia collaboration are:

  • Architecting and designing relevant and cutting edge curriculum.
  • Honing effective Industry Interface to increase the Employability of Indian B-School students
  • Leveraging technology to encompass larger segment by overcoming demographic and geographic barriers.
  • Adopting Gen-Z relevant cutting edge pedagogical tools

IILM Gurgaon is Proud to be associated with this conference as a co-sponsor and distributed goodies bag to all delegates.IMG_20170119_101942 IMG_20170119_114659 IMG_20170119_115053

Final_Carpe-diem2017- IIM-C event.

Carpe Diem’ 2017 (IIM Calcutta)

IIM Calcutta recently concluded with its annual cultural fest “Carpe Diem”. It was a three day event starting from 27th of January to 29th of January 2017.  4 students from IILM got a chance to participate in the various events of fest.

In February 2016 Makeintern.com organized a two day workshop on ‘Digital Marketing’ on 18th and 19th in our college in Gurgaon. Around 30 students participated in this workshop mentored by “Mr. Ujjawal Chugh”. At the end of the workshop there was quiz conducted out of which 4 students were selected to participate in B-Plan competition to be held in the fest.

The team was-

  1. Surabhi Bhatia
  2. Mahipal Jain
  3. Riya Garg
  4. Vijyadeep Dhasmana

We 4 prepared a B-Plan on bespoke tailoring solution named as “Dressoup”. This was to be presented in the competition.

Day 1

We landed in the noon in Kolkata and reached college wherein they gave us accomodations. Carpe Diem 2017 was inaugurated by famous children author Ruskin Bond. He addressed the audience and narrated about his various life experiences. We had a chance to interact with him and asked questions related to his books and stories. His speech was followed by a band performance ‘Laghori-Coke Studio’.

Day 2

Our day started with breakfast in the student mess, eating which we missed our IILM breakfast very much. Then was the first round of B-Plan Competition in which a team quiz was conducted. It was written quiz which consisted of questions 125 on Rio Olympics, Constitution of India and general marketing concepts. Around 40 teams from various colleges in India participated in that quiz. After that we moved out and looked for other events. We were also given lunch coupons and again during lunch we realized IILM still stands far ahead in terms of food and hospitality. In the gaming corner a block game known as ‘Zenga’ was being played. Then there was picture puzzle, face painting doodle art etc. we participated in a few of them. The day ended with a performance by “Nucleya” a renowned DJ.

 

 

Day 3

Results were announced for the quiz and much to our delight we qualified for the second round. Now came the time for presenting our business idea. Each team was given 10 min to put forward their presentation and after that there was a small round of Q&A from the judges. We presented our B-plan but exceeded the time limit by 2 minutes. However, judges were still convinced in the Q&A session. After that we saw many events like fashion show, dance competition etc. at 4 o clock results were announced and unfortunately we could not make it to top 3. Still, we would say it was an amazing experience for all 4 of us as we got a chance to be here in such a premier B-School and talk to people out there.

In the evening we left the campus and decided to take a small city tour. We visited Howrah Bridge, Birla Mandir and then Park Street, which is famous for its night life. Street food in Kolkata is very delicious and a must try.

Next morning we went to New Market and spent whole day wandering around as our flight was delayed by 3 hours. To sum it up, it was a very hands-on experience for those who always wondered what life in the most sought after B-School would be.

It was our pleasure to be a part of such prestigious event. We thank the Mr. Deepak Jain- Secretary General of FII to give the students of IILM, an opportunity to associate with the mega event. I see this event as a great opportunity to enhance their management and networking skills. Meeting people who came back to their motherland after so many years and talking to them about the developments of India, the power of Indian youth and the power of the country was indeed a great affair.

We started as a part of this event on 9th January in kingdom of dreams whereby we met, Mr. Deepak Jain – Secretary of FII, Mr. Rachit and Mr. Gaurav, officers of FII, who briefed us on the event and invigorated us to feel pleased about being a part of this event. By night, we were altogether assigned with our obligations at different locations where, we had visitors from India, as well as all over the globe.  On 10th January, we, a team of 5 students, left  early morning. On reaching our respective locations, we met various teams IMG_20170110_090159 IMG_20170110_131128 IMG-20170111-WA0002 IMG-20170111-WA0004 IMG-20170111-WA0063 IMG-20170111-WA0064 IMG-20170111-WA0070 IMG-20170111-WA0086 IMG-20170112-WA0008 IMG-20170111-WA0013from wiz craft, make my trip, officials from CII and FII. Interfacing with them help us know more about the corporate world, the difficulties confronted in the corporate world and a more extensive skyline of the economy was investigated. Certainly, it was a test of the communication skills we had. By evening, we were all invited to the main venue i.e. Kingdom of Dreams, where we had the opportunity to interact with more delegates and celebrities. By night, we were altogether welcomed to the primary setting i.e. Kingdom of Dreams, where we had the chance to connect with more delegates and big names. On, eleventh January likewise, we were at the focal scene dealing with the occasion and attempting and connect with the delegates.

On an entire, I see this 2 day occasion as an open door which permitted me to learn corporate conduct, enhance my networking skills, organizing aptitudes and for all intents and purposes confront the different periods of administration, which I had hypothetically seen yet. Being placed in the front, whereby we would meet the representatives first then the authorities and attempt and encourage them in the first place, was leverage for us. Knowing the encounters of individuals who left India long back and now wished to return to their countries, made us feel devoted many times and surely, this occasion amplified the adoration for our nation in our souls.

After the event CM of Haryana  met some students ,praised their efforts and wished good luck to them and IILM.

I want to express gratitude toward Vishal sir , FII and CII group to give us the chance to be a piece of this super occasion.

Two groups from IILM Gurgaon consisting of Sudhanshu Mewati, Sagnik Das (Group 1) and Rahul Chitrakar, Bharti Goel (Group2) set the stage ablaze with renewed zeal and enthusiasm shedding more light on the Micro-economic and Macro-economic impact of the initiative that is burgeoning the country to greater heights. Shedding light on not only the global but the domestic (Immediate) impact of the initiative gave one Team of IILM,Gurgaon(Bharti Goel/Rahul Chitrakar) the competitive edge, which was appreciated by the judges as a refreshing touch which substantiated all the facts we so eloquently put across; which was validated by the fact that IILM Gurgaon Bagged first prize for its presentation of what Make in India Holistically stood for and represented.
