Xavier‘s Management Convention is the annual national management festival organised by St. Xavier’s College, Kolkata. It represents a confluence point for management students in India as corporate honchos and academicians adjudicate over events dealing with leading business issues. Competitive range across marketing, finance, human resources, corporate social responsibility, public relations, etc.
The annual management convention takes place towards the end of every academic year. Each year, it attracts participants from all across India along with business leaders representing diverse business sector. The convention is held over two days and features ten events including a flagship event. The speaker sessions see corporate participation in most of its events. The speaker sessions see corporates from India Inc. enlighten the student fraternity with their insights on contemporary issues. This year the theme for XMC is Oblivion – A War Across Dimensions.
X-Talk aims at enlightening the minds of the students through some very relevant yet compelling discussions and conversations. Not only is the dialogue engaging in itself, but also the event has seen the likes of some eminent personalities like our former President, H.E. Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam, the Sherriff of Kolkata, Dr. Utpal Chatterjee. Last year the main speaker for this event was Mr. Shailendra Singh, Joint Managing Director of Percept Ltd. He not only enthralled with his stories about the creation of Sunburn but also motivated one and all to break all barriers and achieve their goals.The synergy of these personalities as well as the well crafted format of the debate/discussion help in making X-Talk one of the most sought after events of the city.
X-Confero is a product of the belief of XMS to move out of our comfort zones and keep on questioning the need of moving ahead. It is due to this belief, that we have taken a leap of faith towards providing the city’s young minds to argument upon their beliefs, thereby creating a convergence point of intellectualism and pragmatism based on reasoning. X-Confero’17 witnessed the participation of students from St. Xavier’s and other colleges compete in many gruelling rounds in order to reach the finals throughout the week, where they were judged by city’s top intellectuals and had to face the questions put forward by the judges and won laurels for themselves accompanied by attractive cash prizes. X-Confero’17 has been a resounding success and we hope to come back next year with a bigger, better and an even more enriching experience.
We held our first event, X-Genesis, exclusively for the first year students of the Department of Commerce and the Department of Business Administration. The event aimed at giving the new students a platform to assess their skill and display their talent. The word ‘Genesis’ literally means ‘mode of formation’ or ‘origin’ and the event seeks to form a basis for all business situations which the students might face in the future. The tagline being “Tread into the new epoch” the event aimed at initiating the aspiring corporates into a world of cutthroat competition and giving them an opportunity to discover their abilities. Comprising events in the field of Marketing, Finance, Human Resources and Public Relations, it gave them an insight into the corporate world, helping in their overall development. We saw the first year students of our college weather the storm of the dynamic corporate world and come out altogether more knowledgeable. X-Genesis was a great success and it received overwhelming praise from not only the students of the college but also the faculty members.
