Department of Management Studies, IIT Madras proudly presents its annual B-School fest, Samanvay. Celebrating synergy, that connects all living creatures and the samanvay in the universe since its evolution from big bang, is core to our B-feast. But this year Samanvay is about something else too, it’s about having fun seriously. Fun is an integral part of DoMS culture. We believe in having fun while doing serious things and that’s the modus operandi at DoMS. What could be the better way than to celebrate this spirit with plethora of events where there is something for everyone?
Scheduled between 11th -13th Jan 2008, Samanvay ’08 promises to be a mega-event with Mr. Gurcharan Das invited as Chief Guest. Mr. Mark W. Vannette, Operations Manager, EDC-India, Caterpillar Inc. and Mr. B. Manivannan, Zonal Manager South zone- LIC, are invited as special guests. As India Inc. is taking on the world with M&As (Tata Motors’s Land Rover winning bid is the latest proof of the growing appetite), the implications of these deals should be understood thoroughly. Hence, Samanvay ’08 will host a panel discussion on “The Great Indian Takeover” with eminent personalities from industry and academics. Also as the importance of management education is increasing, now is the time to look at some of the myths and the realities associated with it. A second panel discussion will focus on “Management Education in India: Are there dreams and are we pursuing them?” with Directors from ISB, MDI, XLRI and industry representatives. In addition to this, Mr. P.C. Narayan, Professor, IIM Banglore, will also take a session.
Apart from regular events, Samanvay this time will host a very special event “Outbound at Dawn”. This promises to be a major crowd puller wherein executives from corporates and press, along with students will test their team building skills in forest and Lake of IIT.
Be there to celebrate the spirit of synergy and fun at Samanvay ’08.
