Speaking about the event, Zahoor, II MBA student said, “It was a great experience for me to take all the responsibility and I learnt something from it that we should not dwell only on the current problem, because the next step we take defines our problem. And I felt that one area needs improvement which is after the session guidelines, because mistakes will happen but guidance provides opportunity for improvement.”
Another student Rohan said, “It was helpful for me to increase the knowledge as to how finance works in the real world.”
“It was a nice activity. From this we got to learn about merger or acquisition,” said Gayathri, another MBA student.
