KONVERSATIONS – KSOM’s Bi Monthly Newsletter: July – August 2023

KIIT School of Management (KSOM), KIIT DU, began its academic semesters for both the MBA first and second years and the BBA second and the third year in July 2023. It was a great pleasure to induct new students into the campus and welcome back existing students from their internship or summer break. July and August of 2023 at KSOM were witness to multiple activities both curricular and co-curricular bringing the campus back to a vibrant and bustling student life. All such activities were aligned to the best practices at the school to promote relevant and inclusive education required to produce future ready managers.

A warm welcome was planned and executed for the eager, enthusiastic students of MBA first year (Batch 23-25) to help them acclimatize to a new environ. As a part of this orientation an outbound event titled “Konfluence” was held in July for all the students of MBA first year at Sterling Resorts, Puri. The design of Konfluence was unorthodox attempting to blend learning, teamwork, and personal introspection in a single window. With the arrival of MBA second year students a renewed focus was attempted through faculty mentors to prepare them for the upcoming placement cycle. Similarly, KSOM also welcomed back BBA second- and third-year students from their summer break. The student clubs of KSOM were active in inducting new members and conducting activities. These clubs were not only domain based but also addressed social issues.

The 14th edition of the HR Konclave and the 4th edition of the Business Analytics Konclave were held during this time. Both events were planned on a grand scale and were preceded by student competitions with participants from premier institutions all over the country. Konclaves provided the much-needed gateway between the university and the academia where practitioner experts from varied organizations interacted with us through lively panel discussions and immersive student workshops. The month of August also witnessed the grandest event of all in the University i.e., the annual convocation. In our quest to build a legacy of students contributing substantially to the organizations that they serve post the completion of their academic journey, a robust alumni connect is considered imperative. Kongregate, the alumni club of KSOM hosted a meet and greet with the alumni on the 18th of August 2023. Selected alumni were called back to the campus to interact with students during the Konfluence and the Konclaves. Significant faculty and student achievements are a highlight during this period. KSOM has had holistic approach to research. Research workshop, research discussions and publications by faculty in our inhouse journal and other journals of repute helped promote a research culture in the school. As we persevere in this academic year, we shall strive to provide every opportunity to our students to help them secure positions within organizations to contribute meaningfully. Furthermore, we will also attempt to forge partnerships with our academic and corporate counterparts to impart relevant education for all our stakeholders.
