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.

RECRUPTION - TRUE DISRUPTION IN RECRUITMENT!


“I am convinced that nothing we do is more important than hiring and developing people. At the end of the day you bet on people, not on strategies.” - Lawrence Bossidy, GE
Human resource is an asset on which companies wager immensely. To talk on this prevailing topic, DIME at IIT Kanpur hosted Ms. Kiran Bhatia Tandon, Ex-Head, Talent Acquisition, Stryker. In her career, spanning over a decade, she has had experiences across diverse industries from Automobile to E-Commerce giving her a bird’s eye perspective of the industry. As charismatic as you get, Ms. Kiran, started off with asking us on the topics we wanted her to discuss upon, keeping the interaction open and filled with candour.
While discussing the difference, she experienced in Automobile and Ecommerce, she shared an anecdote which implied that it is always important for an HR Manager to understand the mind-set of an employee with a substantially larger earning potential than their own…
