A B-school fest in association with t2

What: IBS Business School, Calcutta, presented BRIO 2013 in association with t2. The fest saw over 25 undergraduate colleges and business schools compete in events that tested their oratorical, stress management and general management skills, general knowledge, creativity and more.

When: January 9-10.

Where: IBS campus in Sector V and Kala Mandir.

Day One: The first day of the event was held on campus. One of the big draws was Kill Switch, where participants had to speak both for and against a given topic, switching sides every time the moderator pressed the switch.

Quiz was another popular event and saw the students rack their brains over questions on everything from Greek and Indian mythology to films and architecture.

Students engaged in a war of words on the topic “In today’s world blending culture is a curse for the society”. They raised issues ranging from the negative effect of cultural blending on Indian classical music to how it will contribute to building a united world.

“The Best Manager event was the most difficult. There were nearly 23 participants who had to face group discussions and a stress interview to reach the final round — a personal interview. I am glad to have made it to the final round,” said Soutrik Dey of Ramakrishna Mission Residential College, Narendrapur, who won the third place in the competition.

Day Two: Students sweated it out at the Kala Mandir auditorium in events like Footloose, the dance competition, and Glitterati, the fashion show. In both, students tried to address social concerns too, whether it was IISWBM through their dance recital dealing with problems faced by women or Asutosh College who used trash to accessorise their outfits in Glitterati.

“Asutosh College and St. Xavier’s College did wonderfully in the cultural events. IISWBM, Globsyn Business School and IBS Calcutta were better in the corporate events,” said Sayantan Baul, president, student council, IBS Calcutta.
