The most awaited and prestigious event conducted by St. Joseph’s Institute of Management is finally here. Our business fest, Verve 2017 was conducted on the 10th and 11th of November this year. The event started off with the chief guest for the day Ms. Uma Reddy (Founder, Hitech Magnetics and Electronics Pvt Ltd) inaugurating and declaring Verve’17 open. Students from 13 MBA schools participated in the various domain related competitions throughout these two days.
While the first few rounds in the various rounds were not particularly difficult and gave a warming up effect to the participants, the next rounds proved to be difficult. The highlight in each department were the stress rounds where the caliber and capacity of participants put into test. Buzzing with activity, the whole college focused on being a great host to the participants. Various food stalls like Bats on Wheels, Freshmenu etc. were in the campus to make their visit more comfortable.
The 2nd day started with even more vigor, anticipation and enthusiasm. Various rounds like Mock stock, crisil presentations in finance domain, Poster making and posting it in social media for marketing domain, Onboarding, Training etc. for Human Resource domain, Cracking the codes in Operations domain are a few to name. While these domains had about 10 to 12 rounds in two days, the participants competing for best manager had to go through 28 different rounds in two days. Out of these six teams were selected for final round from each domain, out of which two teams were again eliminated. The winner for Best Manager was the most awaited competition, for which there was a greater turnover among students.
Cultural programs by the students of SJIM started next, followed by the Valedictory, where Mr. Adrian D’souza (Co-founder and M.D, Deccan Group) presided the function. The winners of each domain were announced. Christ University (Main Campus) won the overall championship and Kristu Jayanti college won for the Best Manager. With the prize distribution, Verve’17 thus came to end.
