A post announcing the results of the NUS MBA club elections for NUS Business School in 2008.

Electoral fever not only gripped United States but also passed on to NUS Business School premises in late January. The MBA club elections were scheduled to be held in mid February for the post of respective Club Presidents, Directors for Program Development, Student Activities, Career Services and the ‘Big One’ the President of NUS MBA club.

The candidates kicked off the election campaign by floating their mandates for the forthcoming academic cycle, followed by canvassing within the cohort. The Consulting Club election set the tone for the rest of the two week marathon process. In a closely fought battle for the post of President of Consulting club, Isha Gupta scampered home by 11 votes to 9. Isha has laid down the agenda for the Consulting club members. Her emphasis will be on inviting industry experts, conducting case workshops and facilitating tie ups with Consulting Clubs of other major Business Schools. Gagan Deep, Atreyee Pal and Rohini Srivastava won the elections for the Executive Committee to make it an all women’s line up and set a fresh precedent in history of NUS MBA clubs.

Quiz Competition – Knowledge@NUS MBA

The winning team of the Inaugural General Quiz Competition talks about their road to victory. 

Organized by Knowledge@NUS MBA, The Inaugural General Quiz Competition went by smoothly last Friday, largely unnoticed amidst the big events like Cerebration and GBC!

After being drained by the mammoth 5 -hour session on Negotiation and Conflict Management Workshop (Conducted by Prof Ho Beng) organized by NUS MBA Consulting Club, I was already pretty much consumed but there was this one last thing for the day – the quiz competition. If I could trust my memory, there were 8 teams in total (Well, I am also counting Rathin as a team even though he alone was killing all of us). There was an elimination round to make the competition manageable and we (Anshuman Kaushik, Yogesh and I) survived this round and made it to the actual competition. Other teams which made it this round were Rathin, Kunal Mukherjee & Team (Anshul & Sumit), Shouvik Chanda & Team (Priyanshu & Shreyansh)
