~~~ Skill City ~~~

The Confluence of Skills & Strategy

Greetings from XIMB and Skill City!

The Game

Skill City - the home for the creatively spoilt, isn't just a competition. It's an experience. For the three days spanning the event, creativity is worshiped, team spirit is applauded and strategies are formed, twisted, broken and reformed. Here, it is only your imagination that can limit you.

In today's corporate world where change is the only constant and the unexpected is to be expected, future managers and entrepreneurs constantly need to ideate and innovate to stay ahead. Skill City presents a gamut of events combining elements of wit, grit, perseverance, intelligence and of course, common sense! It is the acid test of your team-spirit when situations go horribly wrong; it tests your composure and resilience when a hitherto brilliant-looking strategy fails miserably; and then it tests your common sense a little more with its crazy twists and mind boggling tasks. It is indeed the toughest test of your soft skills.

Like the 10 years gone by, the best minds from across the country will battle it out once again this year. This will probably be one of the few battles you would have a gala time fighting! So strategize your way through the smart complexities in each game and be the last one standing in this city of creativity!!
