Latest edition: Graduate School Maverick 2020
In the most recent edition of GSM in 2020, graduates joined us virtually to unravel the excitement of creating ideas that will change the upcoming decade. The overall objective of the contest was for teams of eligible participants to compete and win various rounds and challenges in the spirit of the contest.
This year’s contest was open to students who were pursuing full time 1st year and second year B.com (3-year program) & 1st year M.com (2-year program) from select colleges.
The Graduate School Maverick 2020 was a 4-stage contest, with each stage serving as a qualifier. Starting off with multiple-choice questions (MCQs), and an assessment test, participants who qualified these 2 stages, advanced to the 3rd stage. Here’s where the competition got interesting—each team included a faculty member of their college as a mentor, and on top of that, each team was assigned a coach from Deloitte India (Offices of the US). In the 4th stage, shortlisted teams presented case studies using simulation and got an opportunity to take a shot at the big prize!
