The News: In Retrospection.

It’s a bit late this time around ...but I have a number of good news to share ... all are etched in everyone’s memory and can be recited without any hiatus... such was the charisma of events and so was our euphoria...

The IME party...the scintillating IME party ... conspicuous presence of all IME students, professors and their spouses mixed with flamboyant performance by students made it one of the memorable events in our premature IIT Kanpur life... It helped the students and the professors come closer. The excellent mimicry, poem citing and dialogue delivery by students left everyone mesmerized and took every professor back to their own student life (well, I guess so ;))... The party ended with few other-than-academic words by the professors.

The party was followed by small (sic!) Dussehra break which was first opportunity before us to head for home leaving all books and assignments locked in our hostel.

We came back and as if people knew that the break was not enough to re-energize us... so Antragini was organized ... Antragini as usual was at its top scale. The theme this time around was superhero. This four days long event changed the aura of IIT Kanpur... roads were made dance floor and thousands of people danced on the beats of DJ... A number of enthralling events ranging from rock show to fashion show kept us deprived of sleep... The icing on the cake was Sunidhi Chauhan’s performance which gave a perfect end to the event.

A party may end ... an event may wait for next year, but there is no dearth of parties here... we have celebrated many of our classmates’ birthday and the party is still on...


Last but not the least, our classmate Alok Jain, MBA 1st year, recently won Best speaker’s award at the Times of India Debate contest organized in Lucknow. Heartiest Congratulations to Alok.

Hope you too are living your life to the fullest and celebrating each small and big happiness.

Keep the party on!

See you soon !

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…

The 2018-20 batch, an initiation!

Time to take a plunge –  2018-2020Batch


The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step
                                                                                            – Lao Tzu.

The energy of the Indian subcontinent unified at the gates of IIT Kanpur when we started our much- awaited journey of MBA. The pre-assignments and admission process gave us a much-needed glimpse of life ahead of us. With all glittering hopes, we, the 54 minds embarked on an endeavour to achieve our dreams and here we are, introducing our remarkable 2018-2020 batch with immense pride and responsibility wearing the badge of IIT Kanpur.

For most of us, who have prior work experience, it is a back to school time and for the rest, it is an aspired path by choice, now that we are in our new home, it is time for us to build an everlasting relationship with our peers and let the world know about us. With the get-up-and-go attitude, the diversity of the 2018-2020 batch is one of a kind with studen…

Tips from Top, Digital Marketing – A Key Perspective by Mr Vikash Kumar and Mr. Mohit Goel (Trident Ltd)

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. Talking about the changing scenario of digital marketing and the challenges and opportunities that it poses for today’s marketing managers, he shared his insights as the Chief Digital Officer of the textile giant Trident India Ltd, about the marketing and branding strategies being followed in the current scenario.

He started with defining digital marketing as a medium that provides two way flow of information or communication on world wide web. 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…
