Note from Founding Principal Mr. John Andrew Bagul — “Make in India is the initiative of our Honorable Prime Minister Shri. Modi ji. This is based on four pillars. The 4 pillars of Make in India initiative are New Mindset, New Sectors, New Infrastructure, and New Processes. Our Interschool fest for commerce is based on this project to encourage our students to be creative and innovative to think about being budding entrepreneurs.”
Note from President Yash Mittal — “Students in this conclave gathered a lot of experience and knowledge in regards to the business world and current affairs. They learned to innovate new business ideas, solve different crisis situations, trade in the stock market, invest and disinvest in different business startups, and learned to bid for the best cricketers in the T20 Auction. This helped them to strategize and manage their teams and funds efficiently. The students enhanced their practical knowledge, which they would have never gained from textbooks. They were given the opportunity to step into the shoes of entrepreneurs and make the best out of it.
In today’s world, we may think we are divided by different streams, but at the end of the day, business is everywhere. It not only teaches individuals the importance of change but also inculcates essential values in them.”
