Classroom lessons, cool competitions and camaraderie made up the fifth annual fest of the International Management Institute, Confero 5.0, held in association with The Telegraph on December 3.

Apart from home teams, the fest saw participation from many campuses, including the International Institute of Fashion Technology, Techno India, Sivanath Sastri College, Pailan College of Management & Technology, Women’s Christian College, Indian Institute of Management, Ranchi, and Welingkar Institute of Management Development and Research, Mumbai. The chief guest was footballer Syed Rahim Nabi, who spent time interacting with the students and encouraging them.

Buzzing with energy, the students took part in various marketing and cultural events. Marketing events, such as HRcade (quiz, case studies and presentations on human resources), Shopfloor (visual merchandising in retail), Activate B-Plan (business plan ideas and implementation), Tradathon (testing the trading skills of students), House of Cards (utilisation of resources and negotiation skills), Nava Aspada (business quiz) and Rann Kaushal 2.0 (football strategy and operations game) had a dose of everything — trading to strategy — for the management students.

After some serious business in the first half of the day, students geared up for some fun later, with Haute Couture, the fashion show competition, Xprance, group dance, and Maggificient, the showstopper of Confero 5.0. This innovative event tested the culinary skills of all Maggi lovers! The final act was a 90-minute performance by city-based band, Underground Authority.
