The Admission Season...

Of late it has been in fashion to exaggerate about the chilling cold of IIT Kanpur and believe me they are not wrong. We witnessed a few completely foggy winter days. The dancing fog in and around the hostel lobbies reminded us of Harry Potter’s foggy school... but all this could not restrict us from enjoying the weather...sometimes played football even in 20-30 metre visibility.

But,here, we don’t want to talk about the winter season. we want to talk about another season: The Admission season.
The admission season is back again... candidates are curious as to which college they would end up getting a seat in. The years of preparation is at stake... emotions are pigmented in colours of nervousness, eagerness and uncertainty... queries are galore just to sense whiff of success from one’s dream college... all suffice to make us nostalgic about our very own “season” last year...
IIT Kanpur has also tightened its belt to welcome the new members in its fold. IITs, as is known to all by now, are accepting CAT score for admission into their MBA program. IIT Kanpur has set its own criteria for admission. The distinguishing point is that a cap in terms of 10th, 12th and graduation marks has been introduced. Girl candidates have been encouraged for admission by waving off their application fee (we do appreciate this step! ;))

We here at IIT Kanpur have been trying to answer the queries of candidates at various fora namely Pagalguy.com, Facebook etc. We do encourage the candidates to ask any query regarding admission. We try our best to answer them to the best of our knowledge, as quickly as possible.
Despite many changes have been alluded by our faculty members at different fora regarding the kind of candidates (in terms of experience and past academic record) they are looking for, it’s still to be seen which “breed” of candidates carries the prestigious legacy.
I, on behalf of MBA- 2013 and PR & Media team, wish all the luck to the candidates and hope that they get what they deserve.
Hoping to see u here!

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 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.

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.

Mr Kumar stressed upon keeping the session as informal and interactive as possible, making it into a dialogue rather than a one-way lecture. 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…
