Dhruva’16: A business and cultural extravaganza

The event is scheduled for October 21 to 23 at the IIM-T campus

Since its inception in 2011, IIM Tiruchirappalli (IIM-T) has successfully established two brands of events — the management fest Arcturus and the cultural fest Rhythm. But this October, IIM-T is trying something new; it will organise Dhruva’16 to bring together the management and cultural fests on one platform.

IIM-T’s fests have attracted virtuoso talents displaying relentless competition and unforgettable spectacles over the years. With Dhruva, the institute plans to include more events and garner wider participation, with the amalgamation being bigger and better than its predecessors. Dhruva will be a mélange representing a celebration of culture and a war of business wits.

IIM-T has always valued the importance of hands-on experience and has provided a constructive environment to supplement management theories and enhance the learning experience of students. Apart from the flagship events across business domains like marketing, operations, finance and HR organised by the academic clubs of the institute, Dhruva will have a plethora of cultural events coordinated by the various extra-curricular clubs as well.

To add some flavour and spice, Dhruva will also play host to the Bengaluru-based band Lagori, well-known for its powerful yet soulful music that reflects the modern Indian youth.

The event is scheduled for October 21 to 23 at IIM-T.
