Life at IISM – A Broad Spectrum of Activities

Gaurav Kadam – MSM 1

Life in a management college may sound monotonous to some but at IISM that is certainly not the case. IISM provides its students opportunities to delve into various facets of professional life and provides experiences that enrich them to mould themselves into well-balanced individuals. September was a power packed month for students outside the class- room. We take a look at the various activities:

Live Exposure: Premier Futsal League

IISM students from all batches (MSM, PG, BSM) were able to witness the futsal action at the Mumbai leg of the Premier Futsal League (PFL). PFL was a big event held at the NSCI Dome in Mumbai which saw massive stars like Ronaldinho, Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs taking to the field to promote the game in India. There was a special moment of pride for IISM with MSM second year student Mohd Umar playing for the Kerala franchise, captained by Michel Salgado.

Motivational Seminar by NSG Commando

In a refreshing change for IISM students, the students of PG and MSM batches had a 2-hour seminar by Colonel Rajesh Langeh (2IC, NSG) of the Mumbai NSG Division on the topic – “Fight against Terror, a Collective Responsibility and Importance of Crisis Management”. Colonel Rajesh gave a very insightful talk about how certain challenges faced by the NSG Commandos require mental and physical qualities that a management student can learn and apply in real life situations.

Event Management Seminar

The BSM students of IISM witnessed a invigorating seminar in a very crucial aspect of Sports Management – Event Management. The seminar was conducted by Ms. Reema Sanghavi, Managing Director, Maximus Mice & Media Solutions and Co-Founder of the Pinkathon, India’s Biggest Women’s Run. She highlighted the fact that marketing programs and events have the greatest impact and best results when they are designed ‘Target First’ – to address the objective the brand wants to achieve. The students learned a great deal of what it takes to stage a big scale event from scratch until the the D-day.
