A three-day business fest titled 'Imperium' concluded at the Management Development Institute (MDI), Gurgaon, on Sunday.
The fest saw the participation of the best minds from top B-schools in the country, several case studies, games and simulations based on contemporary business scenarios.
The event also had corporate quizzes, talk series with eminent personalities and a cultural night.
The 12th edition of Imperium also saw the introduction of a new event, "Beyond Karma," that focused on social initiatives such as a 'support my school' campaign.
Other events included strategic simulation game biz-czar, online game Nautica, operations-based case studies and a management challenge called PhalanX.
Biz-czar, one of the first events of the fest, was organized by Strategist, the consulting club of MDI. The game, based on a telecom-bidding scenario, was open to engineering and MBA students. The game had 1,082 entries, of which six teams made it to the final phase.
Rohit Roy from NITIE, Mumbai, one of the participants of the biz-czar, said, "Biz-czar is a lot of fun. You cannot prepare in advance for this game and you need a thorough understanding of business strategies and knowledge of the trends in the business sector. It was a close competition and all the teams brought something new and innovative to the table."
