Milestones of the year gone by…

Fuelled by ambition and driven by initiative, the year gone by has been truly eventful to say the least. This year was marked by a series of “firsts” – competitions, seminars as well as full fledged festivals. Though each day at IITK has something new to offer in terms of education and experience we bring to you a brief snapshot of the more prominent events which have shaped the past year:


1. " Consilium 08" – a consulting conclave was organized for the first time with a view to provide a sneak peek into what it takes to take up consulting as a career. With industry veterans gracing the stage with a number of talks covering a whole range of topics related to consulting, this two day conclave was a huge success among students.

2) " Finatics 08" was another first of its kind, designed to give the finance enthusiasts of MBA, IIT Kanpur a stage to test their mettle.

3) " Al meet 08" , was organized with a view to bridge the gap between the alumni and the current students and to forge a mutually beneficial relationship between them.

4) An IITK MBA blog was started to give a running account of what makes us tick and what makes us stand apart!

5) Megabucks which has been a regular feature of our academic calendar was again a resounding success.

6) The IME department which offers the MBA course is all set to move into a state of the art building funded by alumni of the college. The construction is already under way and moving at a fast pace.

This is just a miniscule of the activities that take place in the campus, activities which constantly educate as well as motivate the students of MBA, IITK. It is the dedicated hardwork and effort of the vibrant student community that has helped the MBA program offered by IITK to scale unprecedented heights and in the relatively short span of its existence attain an independent standing as well as recognition. A testimony to the position of IITK MBA is the latest pagalguy ranking which has ranked us 3rd among all the IITs.

The Dawn of A New Beginning - MBA Batch 2017-19

“Opportunities multiply as they are seized.” -Sun Tzu




‘I am an IITian’, even after two months here at IIT Kanpur this one line still fills our heart with excitement. Each one among the 54 students here who have started the journey into the MBA programme of IIT Kanpur, batch of 2017-19, feels that pride and with that equally realizes the responsibility it carries.
We started our journey here on 20th July. Meeting our batch mates for the first time still feels thrilling. Though we knew each other through the whatsapp/facebook group that was created by our seniors to make our registration process as smooth as possible. We were given several assignments before the registration to give us an inkling of the idea of how life at IIT Kanpur is going to be. Assignments were planned in a way such that we get a hands-on experience on case studies, presentations, group activities and article reading. We began burning the midnight oil as a precursor to actually doing it, and how! These assignments u…
