Esperanza 2017, the annual corporate extravaganza of Synergy S.S.C.B.S., the corporate society of Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies, wrapped up recently and it was a sight to behold. The two-day event saw the best minds from across the DU circuit congregate to battle in this business fest. With the theme of all around the world, the journey began on 15th February 2017 and the destination was reached on 16th February 2017.
The event saw applications from over one thousand students, with top sixty-five participants selected after two rigorous rounds of screening to attend the final event. The event was based on Human Resource, Marketing, Finance, and all aspects of a global business, making it the ultimate corporate learning experience. Loaded with interactive sessions, custom-made tasks, and corporate simulations, the two days had participants on their toes at all times. They had to build a business from scratch and tackle the challenge of running an empire on foreign lands. The tasks tested their ability to handle spontaneous changes, critical and creative thinking, and strategising and negotiation skills. Esperanza saw many eminent speakers gracing the occasion to impart their bit of experience and learning to the participants. The Opening Ceremony was held at the Constitution Club of India before shifting the base to the North Campus Conference Centre, Delhi University, for the next day. The winners were decided on the basis of the cumulative performance of the teams in all tasks. The two days of intense competition saw Team Stark emerging victorious, followed closely by The Medellin. Anusha Sinha of Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies was declared the best performer of the event.
Synergy has, in the past, delivered many successful corporate events, and Esperanza 2017 continues the legacy. The wagon has arrived, the competition is won, but the memories remain. Esperanza 2017 was indeed a journey to remember.
