What Is Cognito?
Cognito is the flagship event conducted by the Department of Professional Studies. It is an inter-collegiate business festival started in the year 2003. A Corporate Business Fest of the highest caliber attracts colleges from all over the country to participate. With the standard being exceptionally high, the critical focus is on professionalism, teamwork, global corporate thinking, and practicality.
The festival is designed to emulate the corporate world, and it recreates real-time business scenarios and situations to analyze the participants and find the best among the competitors. Colleges send their best teams to participate in this fest, and the scenario of the fest keeps evolving with the changes in the real business world.
The fast mainly includes rounds based on Finance, Marketing, Human Capital Management, Public Relations, Entrepreneurship, Managerial Skills, and Stress Management. It is an inter-collegiate business festival started in the year 2003.
The two aspects of Cognito – participation, and organization are carefully interwoven to form a seamless event of unparalleled competency. With working professionals judging rounds, and global industry leaders providing valuable input and feedback coupled with the organizational experience, it is the quintessential experience for everyone involved. CIMA UK has been supporting the event over the years.
For the academic year 2014-15, the theme of the event was based on Venture Capital, with more than 20 participating colleges from across the nation.
Aim of the event: The event aims to give the students a real-world corporate experience. They have many elements, which constitute their physical office cabins to the ideating room to bust their stress. By the end of the three-day simulation, they aim to impart some knowledge about a specific theme that they choose every year.
Last year, they had chosen ‘Venture Capitalism‘ as their theme; during the three days, the VCs went through rounds of Series A and Series B funding and solved other corporate situations. They have something called a Cognito Carnival, which is a pre-promotional event for the main Business Festival.
This Carnival is spread over 2 days, usually a week before the main event. At this carnival, we have companies setting up their stalls and games conducted at these stalls to attract Christians. It’s an event to reach out to over 20,000 students over two days.
Who conducts this event? : The students constitute the entire body of this fest, and they are guided by the Head of the Department – Prof. Biju Toms at Christ University. This year, the students in charge are Dhanush Parekh, Nishchay Singh, and Karan Ganna, students of Christ University.
Venue and Date: The venue for the event is Christ University, Hosur Road Campus. This event will be conducted this year on 16, 17, and 18 December 2015 for undergraduate students of Commerce and Management across the nation and abroad.
