LIBAzaar in association with Angels of Marina organised a Marina Cleaning Drive as a way to give back to Chennai city. On Sunday, the 2nd of August 2015, more than 70 students from Loyola Institute of Business Administration walked down the Marina Beach to make it cleaner and better for all the Chennaites. The experience was so satisfying that we have decided to keep doing this on a regular basis with more angels joining hands with us!! LIBAzaar awaits you all at the LIBA campus on 20th Sept 2015!!

So, you want to go some place where your kids can play games, and your better half can spend time with music and your siblings can watch some peppy dance while you're indulging in lip smacking food? We heard you. Eat to your heart's content and have fun with your family and friends at LIBAzaar.

There's something for everyone @ LIBAzaar

Is there a better way to spend your Sunday? We bet not. And yeah, all this for free.

BEACON 2015 - Ethical Challenges in Financial Management

All around the world Beacon is considered to be a source of guidance or inspiration, a guiding light that acts as a warning or as a signal or as a cause for celebration. How Beacon is to the society, so is Ethics to Business. The principles of ethics guide a business with integrity at all times towards its destination. Ethics acts as the guiding light that helps sustain the business without affecting the masses.

Being ethical is one of the prime qualities of a successful leader. They can be a role model to the followers. They set the brand image for the business as well. It is interesting to learn that the businesses that are run ethically attract more customers, have more satisfied employees, have a highly valued Brand Image and add benefit to our society. Not only from a social perspective, but being Ethical gives an individual, self-satisfaction as well. Many businesses have become obsolete because of the unethical behavior of the leaders as well as employees which had led to pandemonium. This reiterates the need to run businesses in an ethical manner to sustain in the business environment for a longer period.

In view of this, LIBA conducts its BUSINESS ETHICS CONFERENCE every year to emphasis on the importance of ethics in the minds of the future resources of the world. Beacon embarks and emphasizes on LIBA's pursuits of excellence and ethics. Since 2007, LIBA has been conducting Business Ethics Conference - 'BEACON'. Some of the topics that were discussed earlier are 'To Illumine, To Imbibe, To Inspire Business With Integrity'; 'India at 60: Inclusive Growth - The Challenge of the New Era'; 'SURFING THE SLUMP'; 'SOARING THROUGH SUSTAINABILITY'; 'Social innovation : A Catalyst for Inclusive Growth'; 'Eco-Innovation: Time to Wake Up!'; 'Social Entrepreneurship: A Calling'. This year, the focus is on Ethical Challenges in Financial Management.

Various speakers from the field are invited to share their knowledge and wisdom with the students. It not only enriches the knowledge of the budding entrepreneurs and future leaders of the world but also imbibes the idea of being ethical in whatever endeavor they take up. Thus ethics is inculcated as one's duty in the minds of the students thus serving for the betterment of the whole society.

Since 2007, BEACON has been deliberating on various issues including inclusive growth and sustainability in all spheres of management. This year, the focus is on Ethical Challenges in Financial Management. So, buckle up and get ready for a day of enriching talks and rich learning experience.

It's been exactly a year. A year since I entered into the portals of blissful existence called “LIBA”. The learnings have been immense, and what better way to preserve the memories than writing them? More than a year back, I was this directionless lass – wondering what I wanted to do with life. I'd figured out I was in the wrong place, doing a monotonous job which I didn't like and something for which I wasn't even recognized despite the good work. Let's admit. Everyone suffers a burnout. But probably mine was greater than that. I applied, worked towards it (Definitely not CAT, but everything else which followed) and before I knew it – I had to pick from 4 colleges to where I wanted to head. Ratings gurus said one institution was the best. Fee structure told me another place was better. My friends offered their gyaan and insights. So did, and the likes. But my mind was set to one place – LIBA. Don't ask me why, don't ask me how. It just felt right. Here was the dream beyond dreams, a fantasy which I didn't expect to come true. Oh c'mon, when you don't have hopes with what you've done with CAT, what more do you expect yourself to see happening?! Especially, after a pathetic quant section score there. (Numbers hate me!)

I was confused and uncertain. Was I doing the right thing, throwing away the job which paid me well? (It definitely did pay me well when I was leaving, not before that. ) Studying, that too after three years of gap? Was it going to work out? What am I doing? The feeling of anxiety about parting ways with your usual circle of friends, family and work. Did I think it was fine? Absolutely not! So as I stepped in, feet wobbling and feeling like a jelly, I let destiny take control. If I had to goof up, so be it. What has followed after that, is an experience of a lifetime. Well, half of the wonderful life is done. And I want to pen them down before the memoirs become faint and distant.

This is a place which taught me to appreciate and enjoy the differences between people. Working with classmates with different mindsets, different temperament, piggy-backers, jokers, enthusiasts and fun lovers – this is what I've been doing. Those who can ease any atmosphere with crackling sense of humour, and the weird ones who exist and do things in a, well, weird manner! :-D I could've been one among all these categories myself. It all depends on what I'm doing. LIBA showed me to find where my strengths were. So I can write and talk, maybe a wee bit. And that's how I went into 360 Degrees, LIBA Branding and Editorial. My identity is set here, and I couldn't be gladder about it. I learned that I cannot satisfy anyone and everyone. I didn't even have to try. I didn't have to walk back with a sullen face for being unable to satisfy all. What purpose did it serve? I understood that attempting to do something was more important that winning in it. I've become more open-minded and my horizon has broadened after my wings took off in a flight at LIBA. ACJ may still not be far off for me, eh?

It took time, but I've learned to be independent. From those pangs arising from being unable to visit home over weekends, I've gone on to staying for long stretches off home. I've been able to adjust and do things myself – something I've never had to do before. Something I'm not even expected to do now, but I can't fathom being like that anymore. I slowly understood what it meant to take responsibility, prove my mettle and celebrate – life and everything about life. Walking around the beautiful campus by the sunset, the endless assignments and tasks which forever need attention, continuous presentations and hearing the usual dialogue of “So which of these are my slides?” before the start of presentations are some of the highlight moments of life here. Not to forget – those occasions of celebrations. From Freshers' Day to Holi, we have always had continuous festivities to keep the campus colorful. This is a place giving you plentiful reasons to celebrate life and friendship.

Oh yes, I've been to Tutorials too. Something like “Vendhan All-Pass tutorials”. I've been taught and coached by different gurus. It's quite like being to tuition centre. Hehe! To all those friends who have done this for me – A BIG THANK YOU! I don't think I would've survived this place if not for you guys. I have discovered that I'm not bookish. Grades don't matter to me as much as it might for someone else. To be very honest, no subject has awed me lest for LEB. I don't care too much about what marks I score, and I won't go behind them. But I am stirred, if my ego gets bruised along the way. I still remember sitting alone in my room and crying, when I flunked in one of the tests in BFA. By and large –I'll try to score, but I'm not the one to be disappointed if I don't manage the O. Like how nobody remembers your work presentations during your death, nobody cares if you were a topper during college too. I have the coolest friend ever who doesn't stress too much on studies. Touchwood! :')

I've perfected the art of sleeping, texting, eating, reading for exams, doodling, passing messages, joking and laughing during classes – all the skills I thought I'd forgotten. They're within me, even after the hiatus. LIBA taught me how important it is to have friends who love you as you are, and friends that support you in times of need. I've been in LWH, where midnight birthday parties are thrown with flower garlands and head-crowns on the birthday babies. A place where you watch movies with your friends over the night, eating half-cold Sandwich take-aways.Where you're just a couple of feet apart, but still Whatsapping everyone in your vicinity. Not to forget – those occasions when food comes out in the classroom. The tremendous sight of people pouncing on boxes and covers of food like a pack of hungry wolves.A special mention about birthday cakes. The atmosphere turns ELECTRIC then. Here's a class filled with cake scams, photo enthusiasts, girls with the sweet, honeyish voice and love for chips, guys who would kill to wear short pink skirts, do hat-trick performances to Sheila Ki Jawani , guys who can walk out of the exam hall before you can finish off even one answer and not to forget – PLAYERS. You know what the best part is? I belong here. My identity lies etched within the confines of such a buzzing (Bees do!) classroom.

It's here where I started to say no. Where I said no to certain people, tasks and ideas. In short, whatever I wasn't comfortable doing. What used to be difficult back then at work, is much easier now. I've probably made some friends and foes along the way with what I've done – So? I can't please everyone. Those who can empathize would understand my decisions too. It's LIBA where I allowed my palate to travel further beyond the corridors of ECR and OMR. I've visited some really good places, and discovered some amazing dine-outs which I never knew existed before. Probably would've done the same thing in TCS – but when you're broke, it's a different feeling altogether to find a place befitting your budget. I'm sure the people who worked and had their wallets jingling before – only to find that they're penniless now can relate. From Gayathri mess to ITC Grand Chola, we have been there, ate that. A place where budgeted eating could mean Sea Mount or Gayathri – depending on what's left in your wallet. We've walked the deserted streets of nameless villages in Chengalpet, and crossed web-walls and danced a crazy number disco in Pegasus. We've sung till our voices turned hoarse during bus rides. (Mine was literally gone while coming back from the village visit ..) . We've cried, worried and panicked about exams, and even gone on to the extent of forgetting about results after certain period of waiting. #IfYouKnowWhatIMean B) We've danced, sung, got surprised, shocked and disappointed. But our spirit keeps going!

This write-up would certainly be incomplete if I forget to mention about the lovely F12 batch. They've been with us all along through this amazing journey, right from Day One. The fantastic dancers, entertainers, friends, show-stoppers, counsellors and buddies from F12. Words probably can't thank enough for all that they've been to us. It's time to part ways and step into their shoes, although we might not fit into them well straight off. Good luck, F12. We have certainly been inspired by your thoughts and actions. And we promise to carry the mantle forward in style.

We are the F13. We have our own differences, but we don't hesitate to go beyond them. We probably have our sweet circle of friends, but we know we can cross that line and embrace others despite such psychological barricades. We are divided by states and backgrounds, but we come together under the all-encompassing umbrella of LIBA. We've crossed halfway down this journey of a lifetime. What's left is going to be even more awesome. Batch Trips, batch tees, a visit down the lanes of Sowcarpet and a day at Murray's & Co – we're going to do it all. Here's to an awesome first year and an even more memorable second year. Oh yeah, Happy interning y'all! Cheers!
