The editorial and the media relation cell in collaboration with Pranay brought the student of SIMS together to take the #simsicebucket challenge. It is an initiative to fight against the cause of cancer. Our very own Director sir did the flag off; he commenced the event by pouring water on the students. The students at SIMS believe that alone we can do so little and together we can contribute so much, with this very belief large number of our student managers participated and donated generously.

We look forward to many such events to raise money and help the under privileged.

08-Aug-14 commenced the Annual business seminar Colloquium 2014 with its first event 4Thought. The topic was “An insight on Global Indian Management Thought Process”. As our director rightly said one can learn more from people with knowledge and experience. The college saw many eminent speakers from corporate background who gave an insight on the topic. They spoke about their experiences in other countries and their observations on Indian style of management.

Mr Ajay Bhandari spoke about how the perception of people in USA about India has changed over the years. Thanks to globalization India has come a long way from a country of elephants and snake charmers to a dependable country of highly skilled and capable people. He spoke about how Indian style of management is completely different from the others. We Indians find it difficult to adhere to processes but do deliver the results qualitatively. Organized chaos works for India. Various speakers highlighted the fact that Indians have the “Somehow made it in time” attitude, popularly called as “Jugaad”. We find a way to do things which otherwise seem ambiguous hence impossible. We take up a challenge and deliver which sets us apart from the others. Indian management is adaptable, progressive and can be used anywhere.

The speakers highlighted the opportunities that are ahead for us and we are the future of the country.  We student managers need to have the ardent belief that we can achieve our goal if we progress towards it fearlessly. Hunger is no more associated with food but with recognition. We have ample opportunities where in we can deliver and make a huge difference in the coming years

The entrepreneurship cell pulled out an amazing event “MARKET BEAT” where the student managers participated with great enthusiasm. As very rightly said, “if you don’t build your dream some one else will hire you to help build theirs. The entrepreneurship cell helped the student managers to take the first step towards their endeavor.  There was amazing food stalls, recreational activities and laundry services that people thought were worth their money. It takes more than an idea to launch a business, an entrepreneur is passionate, a visionary and an expert and needless to say the participants had it all. After a lot of brainstorming, analysis and voting the E-cell declared  “Creativa” and “Sub-conscious” as the winners.
