New year bought new and unparalleled opportunities for some of the PG1 students where they got a chance to visit the top management institute of India i.e. IIM KOZIKHODE.

Later in the pervious year a workshop on personal branding & entrepreneurship skills was held in collaboration with Makeintern in IILM Gurugram campus itself where almost every PG 1 student participated.  Top 5 students were selected to further represent our college on national level, those students were Akshat Tyagi, Atishay Sobti, Radhika Mishra, Riti Sharma and Simran sarna from PG 1st year.

So under the guidance of  Vishal sir, team was all set to participate in 6th International B-plan championship by Makeintern which was to be held at IIM Kozhikode. Every year teams from reputed B schools come and participate in this event. This year teams from 50 Bschools from all over India came all in, and one such team was from ours i.e. from IILM University.

The dates were finalized i.e. from 1st feb till 4th feb and our team was all set to fly to IIM K with their B-plan model on IWMS i.e Integrated waste management system named BinTraq . Kerela surely a tropical paradise and to add on to that the campus of IIM K was like its own little world situated away from the city and on a hill top and one could see the city lights from above.

Day 1 at IIM k was a magical concert night with legendry musical duo Salim-Sulaiman. It was a good time to break the ice and interact with other teams as well as with the students of IIM Kozhikode, for that moment everyone forgot that they came for competition and was enjoying the moment all together.

The next day was the first round of the competition in which each team was given 5 min to pitch their B-PLAN to the jury followed by the questions from the jury itself. There were in total of 50 team from reputed B Schools and our team from IILM university qualified the first round. We were among the top 16 teams that qualified for the next round which was really a proud moment for the students of IILM university.

The final round was the brief explanation of your b-plan, every team gave a tough competition to each other. Some teams even bought the working model of their business model and some even made detailed videos. This time each team was given just 10 min to briefly explain their business plan.

At the end of the day results were announced and top 3 teams were picked which was from Pune, Hyderabad and Bhopal. Our team didn’t come in top 3 but we got appreciation from panellists, it was a good exposure for the us, and next time they will come back stronger for the competition.

We would like to thank the faculty coordinator CA Vishal Goel sir for helping in organising such a wonderful event and for being a torchbearer for the students during the course of the event. Such opportunities really help students to get out of their comfort zone and explore the world outside their college.

Children’s Day Event

Children’s Day Event

IILM University believes in and nurture all round development of its students to prepare them for all the challenges of life with a smile on face and positive spirit in their heart. On one side if it leaves no stone unturned in maintaining highest level of rigor in academic activities than on the other hand give exposure to students to develop and showcase their talent and skills through various co-curricular activities organized under clubs at IILM.

In the pursuit of academic success, students sometimes need a break from the classroom and an opportunity to release pent-up energy. Athletics and sports not only have great physical benefits, but also help one to improve mentally and emotionally. When students are physically fit, they will achieve more academically too. Sport develops a sense of friendliness among the students and develop their team spirit Participation in organized sports offers the chance for youth to enhance their physical and social skills. Sports offer children a change from the monotony of their daily life. It is also a useful means of entertainment and much required physical activity for them.

Keeping in mind all these benefits, the sports club of IILM University organizes various activities for all the students to offer an escape from the walls of classrooms and working on gadgets. The recent addition to those activities was Tug of War, to teach them competition as well as teamwork and of course to have lots of fun.


It is always good to ignite a child in you and what better than tug of war on children’s day i.e.  14th November, 2018. To commemorate Children’s day Sports Club and NGO Club organized 2 events simultaneously. Post exams of Term 1 students also feeling stressed out and looking for a break in routine, so the sports club organized for both undergraduate and postgraduate students ‘Tug Of War’ that seems to be the most appropriate to pump them up. And it also made the children’s day really exciting and special. We invited the underprivileged children’s living nearby, who are the part of IILM University, NGO Club and it was really rewarding to see the smiles on their faces when they participate in various fun activities including musical chair and few performances from them.

All the boys and girls from Post graduate and Undergraduate showed their strength and vigor. IILM University always believes in gender equality and empowering women in all possible ways, so teams had equal number of boys and girls and their strength and enthusiasm was also matched. There were total eight teams who fought with each other. ‘Pull House’ from PG 2nd year and the ‘Flyers’ from PG 1st year played the final match. The sense of representation was high as everyone wanted their batch to win and everybody was willing to give their all to make that happen. Audience were their throughout cheering and boosting the morale of the team battling it out at the field. The music and the witty commentary set the mood at the field.  ‘Pull House’ ultimately stood victorious but not without facing some serious challenger from PG 1st year and the undergraduates. And the winning team and the runner up team received a prize which matches the heart and effort that they had put into competing.

Thereafter children from nearby villages took part in some fun activities and received some gifts arranged by NGO Club.

The event was immensely enjoyed by the audience. Everyone departed with smile on their face biding good bye to the day full of energy and memories to be cherished.

The requests for another such event were already coming in. Sports club will surely organize many such events in the future.

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 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.
