A Tryst with Trade : EDC Organizes Boardroom

To invoke the inner entrepreneur within everyone, The Entrepreneurship Development Cell (EDC) of Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra organised the event Boardroom. This program was presented as a guide keeping in mind the recent corporate scandals due to lack of systematic governance and ethics.

The event comprised of two rounds, prelims and finals. The preliminary round witnessed over 50 participants from both 2k18 and 2k19 batches. It kicked off at 6.30 P.M. in the Lecture Hall-1 on 22nd August, 2019. The quizmasters for the day were Kshitij Yash and Shivam Lal. In this round, essentially a Biz-quiz, 25 questions were asked. The contestants were given a duration of two minutes to answer each question. This was followed by a brief go through of all the questions. After a close competition, 12 of the total participants qualified for the final round.

On the evening of 2nd September, the final round was organized in the Seminar Hall of R&D Building. The participants were made to sit around the table as members of a board room and a case study was given to each of them. Each member was assigned a position and they were to explain the failure of a sinking e-commerce company and find a solution. Participants were awarded points based on their reasoning skills by an esteemed judging panel consisting of Dr. Shradha Shivani, Head of the Department of Management and Dr. Anupam Ghosh.
