KOLOSSEUM, the annual mega B-School event of KIIT School of Management (KSOM) kick started on the 19th of Jan, 2016. The two-day fest draws many of students from across the country and witnesses many cultural events, business games, workshops, management competitions, fashion shows, and the Star Night. KOLOSSEUM 2016 saw around 1500+ participants from more than 40 colleges. Several of KSOM Alumni were present too during the two days. It turned out to be the biggest fest that KSOM has ever witnessed.
The fest started with the Treasure Hunt which was followed by a series of engrossing events such as a marketing game called Spunky Barter, a street play competition called Power Play, a sensational dance competition, Ramp Walk, and the high decibel event called the War of Bands. There were parallel events such as a painting competition called Shades, an entrepreneurship competition called Wolf of E-Street, a business plan competition, and the very interesting ad-mad competition named Ads Mania. There was a plethora of simulation games competition which also gave a zing to the fest. There were events encompassing all functional areas of management which let the participants test their managerial skills and compete with one another. Workshops were conducted in the areas of entrepreneurship and soft skills to better hone the skills of the future managers.
The biggest attraction of the event was the Star Night and for this year it was none other than Benny Dayal. The crowd sang chorus as he went on to sing his chartbuster song “Badtameez Dil”. Everyone had his or her feet tapping and the energy which the crowd exuberated was fantastic.
The Kolosseum has been getting bigger every year with more students from premier business schools of the country participating and showcasing their talent.
