NITIE Students’ Consulting Club popularly known as NSC2 conducted the fourth successful version of its flagship event Zenith during a span of 2 days starting from 28th Feb to 1st March 2015. A gamut of events were organized for the budding consultants of the campus under the umbrella of Zenith 4.0. BMGI , a stronghold in the area of operational strategy consulting and American Express were the proud sponsors of the event.
Zenith 4.0 kicked off with the highly awaited and sought after – CONSIELERE. CONSIELERE was a day long consulting workshop on “Delivering High Performance Business Results through Operational Excellence”. The workshop was skillfully conducted by Mr.Deepak Muthreja, Principal Consultant and Business Head at BMGI. It gave the enthusiastic participants a balanced and intensive insight of the world of consulting. NITIE students who are already known to have a distinct penchant for operations were able to see the exact applications of their theoretical concepts in solving client issues, in the workshop.
The second to follow suit in the series of events was an intriguing panel discussion on one of the most happening topics of current day – “Make in India : The road to manufacturing based economy”. The discussion was presided over by stalwarts of the industry who shared their thoughts and insights on the regnant topic. This year the panel comprised of – Mr. Naresh T Raisinghani – CEO and Executive Director of BMGI and an alumnus of Harvard Business School, Mr. Udayan Dasgupta – Senior VP and Head at Larsen and Toubro, also an alumnus of Harvard Business School and IIM Calcutta and Mr. Himanshu Maloo – Head of Supply Chain(India and South East Asia), Novartis OTC and an alumnus of NITIE, Mumbai. The session was moderated by Mr. Utpal Chattopadhyay – Associate Professor, NITE and Area Coordinator(Economics and Strategy). The discussion contrasted and compared the self consuming nature of Indian Economy with that of China and the huge difference between their cost structures. The panel rightfully observed the major role that government incentives can play in bringing about interest of the youth and growth opportunities in the manufacturing sector in order to achieve a good balance between export led growth and import substitution. It concluded with an engaging question and answer session between the panelists and the audience.
The final event of the 2 day long confluence was CEO Case Break, a one of its kind Consulting Case challenge that saw participation from over 200 teams across top B-Schools of the country. The campus round of the event eventually boiled down to 9 teams who fought tooth and nail to impress the eminent panel of judges with their solution of an actual business scenario problem that was put forth to them.
Like every other year since its inception, Zenith 4.0 also proved to be an excellent experience for all the students on campus as well as for participants beyond as their window to the grand big world of consulting.
