SOM conducts maiden chapter of Eminence 2k19

Manipal: School of Management (SOM), MAHE, held the first edition of their management fest ‘Eminence 2k19’ from January 22-23. Various clubs of the college came together and conducted a set of events namely ‘Trailblazer’, ‘Game of Finance’, ‘Karya’, ‘Grand Bazaar’, ‘Kurukshetra’ and ‘Best Manager.’

The events had a total of 120 participants. Different rounds were conducted for each event and participants were eliminated after each round. Faculty members of SOM and Department of Commerce (DOC) headed the rounds as judges. Speaking about her participation in the fest, Ankita, an MBA student said, “The entire initiative of the fest was incredible and I am really happy to be a part of it. The debate round of the ‘Game of Finance’ gave me ideas to pitch my side of the argument and conclude it. All the other events were also really interactive and exciting.”

The most sought after event of the fest was ‘Best Manager’. “It was stressful not only for the participants but for the organisers as well. We had to work late at night to make sure we do not encounter any flaws. Personally, the experience was wonderful.” said Mithun Mohan, one of the coordinators of the event.

Yogesh Pai, a faculty member of SOM said, “The students have carefully planned each event. However, I feel that the event was lacking in the number of participants and volunteers. Apart from that, the overall event was really good.” According to Manohar C S, a second year MBA student and the head organiser of the fest, the event did not receive any participation from other colleges because it was an intra-college event. “The basic objective was to involve all the clubs of the college and conduct a management fest. We plan on making it much bigger when we take it ahead next time,” he added.

The director of SOM, Dr Raveendranath Nayak also gave his insights about the fest. “While our intervention as faculty members was only to fund the whole project, the organisers have definitely learnt to work and manage everything as a team. When it comes to the participants, the fest was a great way to enhance their soft skills, stress management abilities, problem solving skills, and so on,” he said.

At the end of the two-day fest, a valedictory function was held to announce the winners and runners-up of the six events. The director congratulated and thanked the participants, organisers, and volunteers for bringing the first edition of the fest to a successful end.
