Mahamandi – Establishing the social connect

The countdown begins…It’s time to gear up once again for the big event of the year - MAHAMANDI ’15, a trademark of NITIE spearheaded by Team MIG (Marketing Interest Group), which serves as a unique platform for students to conceptualize and implement marketing strategies to contribute towards the society. Students of NITIE host a number of activities during the event to proliferate the socio-economic aspects of business by propagating handcraft toys and stationery made by underprivileged children. It gives the students a practical perspective of learning by selling in open markets. It also provides them an opportunity to apply the theory of consumer behaviour and bring in all the management gyan to empower the lives of destitute children. Our mantra is “Socho Becho Seekho”

Mahamandi has been an initiative by NITIE to join hands with NGO’s like Navnirmiti and CRY and has been recognized by the ministry of HRD for value addition towards social development. NITIE was also awarded the 'B-school Innovation Award' for conceptualizing a truly one of a kind idea. Mahamandi combines entrepreneurial spirit and practical approach towards learning integrated with a sense of social responsibility. All the profit made out of the event is used for the upliftment and betterment of underprivileged children
