An insatiable hunger for challenge is the only pre-requisite for you to come to Atharva – TAPMI’s annual B-School fest.

We at Atharva understand that preparation and participation involves a sizeable effort and costs time. And to make your efforts worth it, Atharva is designed, unlike many B-School fests across the country, to offer a mix of business-related as well as cultural events. When you have the talent, then we will provide you the platform to prove it. Vibes, the inter college dance competition for the twinkle toes and tapping boots, has always been one of the most sought after events that sees participation from several institutions across the country.

Across various industries, HR managers look for those who can put the theory into practice, apply the textbook in the real world. Are you able to co-relate trends in the industry? Or, is there a creative genius in you looking to empower a brand or shape a company’s strategy? Events managed at Atharva are of a certain kind –which seeks to quiz the B-school grad, to intrigue, to test the skill set and decision making abilities while dealing with ambiguity and surprise. Atharva, as a concept has evolved immensely over the years and at TAPMI it has been a collaborative effort involving external functional committees viz. Marketing & General Management (MGM), HR Fora, Social Endeavour Group (SEG), the Finance and Operations Forums and the like to aid the event design. Be it a stock market simulation or ensuring that a B-plan recommendation is implemented in practice; the functional committees have been the proverbial ‘cog in the wheel’.
