THE IIM-L’s annual business conclave Manfest 2006 is set to commence from January 20. This year, the Aditya Birla Group Manfest, will attract over 350 students from various business schools across the country. Aditya Birla Group Manfest has been positioned by IIM-L as a ‘Complete CEO workout’.
This has been done because the business conclave not only involves management games, but also is interspersed with paper presentation, case study analysis and interactive industry-student sessions. The three-day event has attracted corporates such as the Aditya Birla Group, TCS, SBI, ONGC, Reliance Infocomm and others.
Manfest will host luminaries such as Boman Irani, Sam Pitroda, Ashok Desai, Subir Raha and Geeth Sethi, among others. They will share their experiences in their respective fields on what leadership is all about and what skills are required by students to make a mark in the corporate arena.
IIM-L director Prof Devi Singh said: “IIM-L emulates excellence in not just the field of management sciences, but in all spheres of life. Aditya Birla Group Manfest will give an opportunity for students to hone their professional and creative skills by providing an interactive platform between industry and students.”
“Real time case studies, paper presentation and industry dialogues by eminent industry leaders provide the students with cutting edge skills necessary to seamlessly get absorbed in the corporate environment immediately after placements,” he added.
Some of the highlights of the event include ‘Biz Theatre’, ‘Go Trade’, the ‘Other Side’, etc. Biz theatre gives an opportunity to students to consult organisations on their current business related issues and gives them a fresh perspective in problem solving. ‘Go Trade’ is aimed at testing the investment and portfolio management skills of students in a competitive and real time environment.
‘Other Side’ gives an opportunity to see the growth and economic development in India from the perspective of those from abroad. The ‘current stage’ panel discussion would attempt to highlight the theme of the Manfest and simulate discussion on the topic ‘India global torchbearers and the road ahead’. It would give a chance to the audience to imbibe the best of all speakers.
