Marquee event of St. Xavier’s College pulled in participants from colleges across India
Insignia ’21, organised by the Xavier’s Commerce Society of St. Xavier’s College, kept the participants on their toes and tested their business acumen with a bouquet of competitions on April 21 and 22. ABP Education was the digital partner for the virtual event.
Here are the winners in the different segments.
The Finance: From deciding on the correct bets to analysing minute aspects, it was worth the money. Chirag Banka and Tushar Mandhana, both first-year BCom students of Shri Ram College of Commerce, bagged the first prize.
“It was an exhilarating competition that had everything, from intricate simulations to overnight case studies. The experience I gained from this has been amazing,” said Chirag.
Entrepreneurship: This two-day competition put the participants through many gruelling rounds to test various entrepreneurial skills like assertiveness, confidence, innovativeness, perseverance, and the willingness to learn and take risks. Ujjwal Jain and Aarushi Jaitly, both Economics students of Symbiosis School of Economics, won the top spot.
“This was one of the toughest and the most challenging competitions. We had scanty hopes of securing a rank given that we were trailing poorly in round one. We thought of giving a last push and that won us the first place,” said Ujjwal, a second-year student.
“We had multiple rounds testing our entrepreneurship and business skills like dealing, negotiating and building a business plan. I was really shocked when the result was declared because it was definitely one of the most difficult competitions we have participated in,” said Aarushi, a first-year student.
Best Manager: A flagship event of Insignia, this competition focused on a participant’s negotiation skills. The judges tested how calm and creative the participants could be during a stressful interview.
“I had participated once before but the rounds had not gone well. To win their national flagship event in my last year was a great feeling,” said Aditya Vikram Bajaj, a third-year BCom student of St. Xavier’s College.
Marketing: This competition was all about creativity, problem-solving skills, stress management skills and quick thinking. The unique cases provided in these rounds made the participants think beyond the ordinary set of solutions and come up with innovative and futuristic ideas to resolve the crisis at hand.
The first spot went to Akshata Pandey and Khushi Bharti, both Economics students of Christ University, Bangalore.
“This is the second year I am participating. To solve the rounds in an hour makes us exercise our marketing skills to the maximum. The auction rounds, which are time-consuming, excited me the most,” said Akshata, a second-year student.
“The Marketing event had in store intense rounds, which tested our mettle and judged how quickly we could think on our feet. After the hectic and gruelling rounds came to end, I had butterflies in my stomach while awaiting the results,” said Khushi, a first-year student.
Human Resource: Students had to be a part of an intense board meeting, bid for and represent famous personalities and trade employees to amplify human capital.
“After two gruelling days of competition and tedious rounds, it was a different feeling when my name was announced,” said Riya Ahuja, a third-year Economics student of St. Stephen’s College Delhi, who won the competition.
Public and International Relations: From moot court to a warfare-based board game, this event involved skills like lobbying, negotiating, strategizing and solving crises. Yashvi Mittal and Swapnil Sagar, both third-year Economics students of Shri Ram College of Commerce Delhi, were the winners.
“The event was extremely interesting and because of the innovative rounds, it was an enriching experience,” said Yashvi.
Strategic Management: This event saw participants use various strategies in different rounds. Sanya Singh and Rushil Sahni, both first-year Commerce students of Christ University, Bangalore, grabbed the top spot.
“Strategic Management was an extremely productive event. We were really astonished with the results as the competition was neck to neck,” said Sanya.
“The competition was informative and challenging, covering various aspects of strategic management from auctions to closed biddings to presentations,” said Rushil.
