Bivas Misra who was awarded for Systems, Abhijit Shah for Finance and Mr Sujesh P for Operations were all second year students of the PGDBM at XIMB. Anindita Rathore from FMS Delhi, won the top award for her project in Marketing while Sajan AS from XLRI bagged the HR top slot.
The XIMB success story was also repeated in the Rural Management segment where XIMB students bagged all the three spot on offer in that segment of the competition, once again affirming XIMB’s dominant status as the emerging top B-School in the Rural Management education.
