October 14, Sunday, was the final day of Vista, IIM Bangalore's annual fest.
The fest came to a close with Harsha Bhogle hosting Bizarre. During the day, many events held their final rounds.
The flagship event Numero Uno - 'Hunt for the next CEO' came to a thrilling end after three grueling and testing days of competitions. The final was a test of presence of mind of the 5 students as they were grilled on various issues by a panel of judges. They were evaluated based on their answers by both the panel and the audience. The final winner was Eva Gasprowicz, an international participant at IIM-B from Poland.
'Re-Tailor' was a retailing and supply chain management competition, which tested the participants' acumen in conceptualizing and designing new and innovative designs for the retail sector. The finals of the event was a retail based quiz which tested the depth of knowledge of the participants in this sector.
The final day also saw a lot of workshops.
Ibibo conducted a workshop on blogs, social networking and online transactions. It started off with a small quiz to get the audience involved and then went on to look at the potential present on the internet to conduct business, opening up new possibilities for the packed audience, who were thoroughly entertained throughout.
The Investment workshop conducted by Professor Ravi Anshuman, a faculty of IIM Bangalore, informed and educated the audience about various investment opportunities by demystifying esoteric concepts like derivatives, bonds and stocks. To get away from all the strategy, private equity, investment and other business related concepts, an Art Workshop was conducted as well.
The grand finale of this mega event was Bizarre, the general quiz conducted and hosted by Harsha Bhogle. The event saw a lot of participation by both college and corporate teams from all over India. Harsha Bhogle, like always, was at his witty best and enthralled the crowd with both his questions and humor.
