After an electrifying XMC’22, we launched the annual departmental magazine - The X-Ecutive Vol. XVIII - A Rhythm of Reflections on the 28th of June 2022. The theme for this year’s magazine was “musings” - helping our endeavours into the realm of critical thinking and discovering how we can grow as human beings. From invigorating articles about the various facets of the business world to insightful and inspiring interviews of successful personalities, it aims at enlightening readers all over the globe about the various facets of life. Our magazine covers a myriad of genres such as business, sports, entertainment, current affairs, and technology. The X- Ecutive Vol. XVIII - A Rhythm of Reflections had articles about the metaverse, financial investment, football, and electric vehicles among many other spectrums. We also had interviews with many accomplished personalities across the globe.
The main highlight of our magazine every year is our celebrity interviews. The Editorial Department of our society brings together individuals from several walks of life each year who, through their work and unwavering spirit, have captured the hearts of people all around the world. Through their interview, they share their success story with us and provide us with valuable life lessons that act as stepping stones on our road to success. Over the years we have interviewed celebrities like Mr. Sourav Ganguly, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, Mr. Pranab Mukherjee, Ms. Sakshi Malik, and Mr. Philip Kotler among many other notable names. This year we were privileged enough to interview personalities like Mr. Shantanu Maheshwari (Bollywood Actor), Mr. Umesh Yadav (Indian Cricketer), Mr. Ronojoy Dutta (CEO of Indigo Airlines), and Mr. Jubin Nautiyal (Playback Singer) being some of them.
X-Genesis, our first calendar event of the academic year, is an event curated exclusively for the first-year students of our institution. It is a pathway for the freshers of our College towards unwavering business acumen and management proficiency. It includes events from various management domains like marketing, finance, and public relations amongst others. The primary objective is to give the first-year students real-world corporate exposure and understanding so that they can realize their respective goals in a more cognizant way.
The theme for X-Genesis’22 was “Formula 1”. Formula 1 is the pinnacle of motor racing and a global spectacle. Drawing a parallel between Formula 1 and management was of prime importance to us, as the participants meandered their way around the track of challenges that came their way. Being the first full scale offline event after Covid-19, we received a tremendous response from the freshers in the form of more than 400 registrations for our event. Over the four days of exhilarating and mind-bending rounds held from the 16th to the 19th of September, the participants of X-Genesis were able to showcase their acumen and “break through the bastion”.
We had the privilege of having two of esteemed speakers for our keynote sessions- Mr. Ankur Warikoo and Mrs. Anamika Khanna. We had an online session with Mr. Ankur Warikoo (Internet entrepreneur and acclaimed author) who illuminated us with the “growth mindset”. We were proud to host Mrs. Anamika Khanna, an internationally acclaimed fashion designer, at the Fr. Depelchin Auditorium for her speaker session which had over 1500+ attendees. It was an enriching experience for all those who attended the event and helped us bring out the curtains on a highly successful X-Genesis’22.
Recruitments, an invitation to the first-year students of the BMS batch to become a part of the society, is an opportunity for them to hold invigorating events, explore their potential and imbibe enriching experiences of a lifetime by becoming a part of our legacy. Their addition to our society encourages us to move forward into yet another year brimming with new challenges and possibilities that uphold the endless magnificence of our society. Recruitments’22 witnessed registrations from 150+ students from our department. The students had to sit for a personal interview where their business acumen, time management skills and cognitive abilities were tested. Through this, students got the opportunity to gain real-life corporate interview experience.
The qualifiers of the interviews were inducted into the society and its workings with the promise of continuing to uphold our society’s glory with many more successful events to come.
