As the countdown is on for IIM Calcutta's flagship annual business event, Intaglio (January 5-7, 2007), we take a quick look back at what dazzled in the festival's previous edition.

This year's aim is clear and simple: surpass last year's phenomenal success and provide an excellent platform for interaction among industry/political stalwarts, academic experts and top management students from across India and the world.

Perhaps the most notable achievement was that Intaglio was recommended for ISO 9001 certification. Intaglio became the first and only business school festival in India to achieve the prestigious ISO 9001 quality standard. The audit and recommendation was made by Det Norske Veritas, one of the world's leading certification bodies.

Last year, Intaglio attracted a huge influx of enthusiastic participants. It brought together scholars from institutions such as Harvard, Kellogg, Dartmouth's Tuck, National University of Singapore and the Asian Institute of Management in addition to those from the other IIMs and other premier institutions across the country.



The list of sponsors included the who's who of Indian corporations. The Times Group was the Title Sponsor, while Tata Consultancy Services was the Associate Sponsor. Sponsors of individual events included Cognizant, UBS, ITC Limited, CNBC TV18, Bank of America, Philips, Outlook, Reliance Mutual Fund, GSK, rediff.com, Motilal Oswal, Mckinsey&Company;, SAP and Business India. The Cognizant sponsored lecture series "Reverberations" was well received and had, among other speakers, Rodger Desai €“ CEO of Rave Wireless Inc. but better known as the "Serial Entrepreneur".

Furthermore, the Indian Oil Corporation Ltd. sponsored Cicero's Senate, which brought together top women achievers from various walks of life to debate on significant issues. Some of the movers and shakers such as Deputy MD of ICICI, Chief Marketing Officer Wipro, International Programme Officer UN, Senior VP Morgan Stanley, Global Decision Manager TCS and Senior GM of Eveready Industries contributed to an enriching session.



A wide variety of intensely competitive events, case study competitions and paper presentations were held on the entire spectrum of business functions such as finance, marketing, systems, operations, consulting and strategy. While IIMC managed to hold onto the prestigious "Swiss Knife" trophy for overall excellence in Intaglio, ISB Hyderabad pipped 2 IIMC teams to win the Quizzical event conducted by the renowned quizmaster Joy Bhattacharya. The team from NUS Singapore won the award for the best foreign team.





Euphoria's performance gave a fitting conclusion to IIMC's Intaglio 2005-06. The cultural night finale €“ Regalio - of the international B-school meet organized by IIMC saw all the participants and students dancing to the melodious songs which have rocked the nation over the years. After four days of intellectually stimulating games, quizzes, lecture series and host of workshops participants and the organizers got a chance to let their hair down and party till late at night.
