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.

An Introduction to the batch of 2019-21

It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change." A new zeal, vigour, and an unquenchable thirst for proving oneself is what describes MBA batch of 2019-21. 52 of us set foot on the pavement of a new journey and needless to say it has been unprecedented. Be it the early morning presentations, the stark midnight deadlines, or the never-ending case studies covering the gamut of concepts and context, each one of these activities can vouch for it. It has hardly been a month, yet the batch has acclimatized well with the life of one the most coveted institutes in the country, IIT Kanpur.
For most of us, this is the desired path, and for the rest, it is an opportunity to relive their school days. Since we are in a place that has no norm and instead offers endless diversity, there will always be something that entertains and challenges us. It is time we took this opportunity to build a lasting relationship with our c…

With the get-up-and-go attitude, the diversity of the 2018-2020 batch is one of a kind with studen…

Mr Vikash Kumar, Chief Digital Officer at Trident Group India Ltd, visited the IME department at IIT Kanpur along with his colleague Mr Mohit Goel, GM at Digital Trident, on the 3rd of September, 2016.

He emphasized on how the rapidly changing world of digital marketing has made textbook knowledge insufficient, and further emphasized the importance of learning on the job, staying unique, and believing in o…
