Commerce Association of Shaheed Bhagat Singh College hosted the second edition of its annual case study competition – ‘Contrivance 2016’ on 21st October 2016. In Contrivance, the participants are encouraged to select a business case study on their own within the premises of a generic theme. In the first edition of the event, the theme for selecting the case study was “Marketing Challenges” and this year, the theme chosen was “Strategic Management in Business”. The theme was selected with the belief that strategic management is the key to developing complex business models and understanding the nature of challenges in business.

The participants were required to prepare a case study under the ambit of the mentioned theme and form an analysis and solution for the case. The event was organised over two rounds. The first round was an online preliminary round and the selected top 9 teams made it to the final round where they were to give presentations to a panel of judges.

The event drew participation from over twenty colleges of Delhi University and various other colleges of Delhi-NCR. The judges for the event were Mr Vivek Bhatt, Vice-President, Axis Bank and Dr D.R. Saklani, Associate Professor, at Shaheed Bhagat Singh College. Toshiba and Rex Shoes were the proud sponsors of this event.
