Aims & Objective
MBA first year students being new to the Management Curriculum it is very important to give them exposure of the real business world to well comprehend the concepts of Management being taught to them. We at SIMCA always emphasize on experiential and practical learning to the students.
In order to make them well aware and implement the Principles of Planning, Organizing, Directing, Controlling & Staffing the ‘One Day Entrepreneur Activity’ was planned for them.
The students of first year were planned to divide in equal groups. Each group was given Rs.500 by the Institute as their capital for starting their business. The students were asked not to add any additional investment in the given amount. The students were instructed to earn maximum profit from the given amount. The profit earned from all the groups was planned to donate to the “Kerala Relief Funds”.
On the second day of the activity the presentations of each group will arranged so as to evaluate the students business strategy and implementation of their plan. Simultaneously on the same day the second year students would be involved in raising the funds for Kerala victims as a part of CSR activity. Hence, we could fetch maximum funds for Kerala victims. Posters will be prepared as display material and promotion of the activity.
