At the chess tournament


The Orientation Programme of Mount Carmel Institute of Management for the 2011-2012 batch of PGDM students was held recently. Inaugurating the programme, Sr. Albina, Director of the Institute, called upon the students to become agents of transformation and development at different levels of life.

Prabhu Ganapathy, DGM, ING Vysya Life Insurance, who was the chief guest, spoke on emerging opportunities in the next decade and gave simple tips to the students on how to seize the opportunity.

He called upon the students “to become hungry” to achieve their desired goals. Making a presentation on how women in the corporate world achieve success, he told the students that they too could reach the top of the ladder of success with a positive attitude.


Students of T. John College of Pharmacy recently won the champion's trophy in the RGUHS Bangalore Zonal intercollegiate chess tournament. Government College of Pharmacy was the runner-up. T. John College of Nursing was the second runner-up.

In another event, T. John College of Nursing celebrated its graduation day. Speaking at the ceremony, Mini Johnson, Nursing Superintendent of Sparsh Hospital, said “Nurses dispense comfort, compassion, and caring without even a prescription. When you're a nurse you know that every day you will touch a life or a life will touch yours. Graduation is just a concept. In real life every day you graduate. Graduation is a process that goes on until the last day of your life. If you can grasp that, you'll make a difference.”

New batch

Amrita School of Business, Bangalore, organised a welcome event for the new batch of students for the year 2011-13. Kalyan Banerji, Vice-President, Mindtree, asked the students what kind of global leadership they are looking to provide especially at a time when India is said to be becoming a super power.

G. Kalyanaram, Dean of Amrita School of Business, said that new courses in Financial Modelling, Sustainability and Health are being introduced for this academic session.

The new academic session witnesses the advent of students with the highest CAT percentile of 99.96 per cent and average 81 percentile, the release said.

Brand manager

The first round of Nissan Student Brand Manager (NSBM)-2011 was organised at SIBM Bangalore featuring teams from the host college, IIM-B, IIM-K, and Christ University, among others.

After the screening round which required participants to send their presentations online, 25 students were shortlisted for the first zonal round.

The Nissan Student Brand Manager is a new and innovative competition, providing a valuable interface between students and industry. The competition rewards budding brand managers for thinking creatively but asks them to keep the financial limitations in view as well.

The first zonal round was dominated by the two southern rivals – SIBM-B (Umang Arora and Ronnie Bannerjee) and IIM-K (Rubin Menon and Sriharsha), with two students from each of the two institutes selected for the Mumbai grand finale.

AIM's memorandum

Arise India Movement (AIM), a not-for-profit, student-propelled organisation, organised a massive students gathering at Jain College, Bangalore, recently to express the solidarity of the students' community in the fight against corruption and also to press for bringing educational corruption under the ambit of Lokpal. A memorandum was presented to Justice Santosh Hegde, member of the Lokpal draft panel and Karnataka Lokayukta, in this regard.
