Jamshedpur : XLRI Jamshedpur launched the theme of the 13th edition of Ensemble, annual management conclave organised by Ensemble Core Team, a body of students from both the years.
All the other committees in XLRI come together under the umbrella of Ensemble Core Team (ECT) to organise this event. The 2013 edition of XLRI Jamshedpur’s Ensemble is based on the theme ‘Ideate Radically, Grow Sustainably’.
Ensemble 2013 is scheduled to take place in XLRI campus on the November 15 to 17 with participation coming from all the IIMs and other top B-Schools.
The current socio-economic condition that the country faces, has evoked a strong sense of responsibility among all stakeholders of the society.
The gloomy economic conditions, inequitable distribution of development and localisation of wealth in certain pockets of the society are certain challenges that the modern businesses too are feeling the impact of.
Identifying this as a major driver in the society, Ensemble this year shall invite speakers to ideate on this particular theme, as a part of the idea summit, which is one of the main attractions of Ensemble. Previous editions have had speakers like Kiran Bedi, Prahlad Kakkad among many other industry experts.
Ignito, the Ensemble Business Theme Launch, was inaugurated by Prof. Pranabesh Ray – Dean Academics and Fr. James , whose message echoing the importance of radical thinking struck a chord with the huge turnout of both students and faculty. The function started with a dazzling display of Sky Lanterns which lit up the sky, depicting the soaring heights ignited minds can reach.
This was only proven true by the enthusiastic participation of over 500 students in the event that came next, who all lighted a Sky Lantern as a symbol for their commitment to innovative thinking.
Ensemble has always proved to be a melting pot of ideas, creativity, and spirit, fuelled by talent that the top business school intelligentsia brings with it. ENSEMBBLE 2013 is poised to become bigger and better than the previous editions.
A number of domain related events in the area of Marketing, Consulting, Operation, Finance, HR and IR are being conducted. A number of online events are also supposed to happen this year.
The event has also gone international for the first time with participation from associate B-Schools of XLRI.
A woman entrepreneurship summit sponsored by Google in association with the entrepreneurship cell of XLRI is another event in focus
