Xpressions, the annual fest of XIMB, is scheduled to take place from 8th to 10th November 2019. The three-day extravaganza is one of the biggest Management-Cultural fests of eastern India and the students are all geared up to make this a utopian event.
XIMB, a 29 years old business school of global repute is the Flagship School of Xavier University. Inspired by the Jesuit spirit of ‘Magis’, or excellence, XIMB strives to be a premier institute globally recognized for management education, training, research, and consulting. It is accounted among the leading management institutions in the country.
Hosting a gamut of events, Xpressions 2019 aims to provide an ideal platform for business students across the nation to prove their mettle in their area of expertise-be it performing arts or business intellect.
As a prelude to Xpressions, social events X-Athon and X-Enable are conducted every year. This year the X-Athon and the X-Enable were successfully conducted on 20 October 2018. The theme for this year’s X-Athon, a 10k marathon, “Run a mile, Spread a smile” was to inspire people to lead healthier lives while creating awareness and raising funds for the social cause. XIMB witnessed a large number of participants for the marathon. X-Enable is the Annual Sports event organized for the differently-abled children. The event witnessed participation from various schools such as Chetana school and Swabhimaan school to name a few.
With only a few days to go, here are the events that are scheduled to make Xpressions eventful and memorable. We bring an assortment of competitions to test the business acumen of the participants.
