“iAspire”, a new initiative by the Aspirant Relations Team of SIBM Pune, aims at bringing together MBA aspirants and mentors from B-schools through an interactive and competitive format. The event caters to solve the dilemma that an aspirant has during this crucial phase of preparation.
The competition provides an exclusive opportunity for aspiring candidates to experience a simulated B-school environment while working on a series of management related tasks under the guidance of an MBA student acting as mentor. The aspirants may be currently employed or students at undergraduate colleges and coaching institutes.
Aspirants would be selected on the basis of an online preliminary exam, which would be held on the 14th and 15th of August 2013. Moreover, a few candidates would also be given a chance to directly participate in the second phase of the competition by winning daily quizzes uploaded on the event’s Facebook page. The selected candidates would move on to participate in a rigorous four day event starting on the 23rd of August designed to help them gain insights to the business world.
Throughout the competition, the aspirants would be exposed to a plethora of business scenarios, which would assist them in their upcoming entrances for MBA institutes. Also, at the end of the process, candidates would be provided with a one-on-one mentorship session with an MBA student to resolve all their doubts related to pursuing a career in management. In addition to this, prizes worth Rs 1,00,000 are also up for grabs!
