Vista 2010 Countdown: 1

There's an ominous silence in the air.

Logic dictates that it is more probably because it's midnight rather than the "calm before the storm", and relatively sane people are busy living out their dreams in REM mode. Hapless PGSEM students on the other hand are most probably finishing the assignments due for Friday.

Whether we like it or not, Friday will come, and the assignments need to be handed in. It goes without saying that Friday will also bring with it this year's biggest biz bash at the IIM Bangalore. Now why would we want to wish Vista away? Answer me once again, which is more important? The fest or your future??

Just one more day to go. Have you submitted your case?

Vista 2010 Countdown: 2

The submissions for the events are slowly trickling in! That means some of YOUR potential competition are done with their basic plan, and are scheming how to hold their fort while the rest of you try to stake your claim.

Submit your entries soon, the last date for submitting entries is 11:59:59 PM, 29th Sep. OMG, wait a minute, that's today!

We look forward to the clash between the empires. We know you'll make it worth watching.

Vista 2010 Countdown: 3

Three days left before all the good business schools in India arrive in IIM Bangalore, some to take back what's rightfully theirs, and others to proclaim that right!

What kind of B-school do you go to?
represent your B-school...
wave your flag...

Vista 2010 Countdown: 4

With four days left to go for the fest, you can sense the excitement in the air. More than the air, it's actually in our inboxes... all the last minute frantic "OMG! Somebody look into this ASAP!" and "Drop the assignments, which is more important? The fest or your future?" seem to be setting up an energy that my manager hasn't seen in me during the last year. Of course, he didn't seem very pleased when I mumbled that I was working on our fest preparations.

Then he says "Bah! Four days left, that's all no?".
Yeah, right.

Come by! Check the college out in all its bustle and excitement! Witness the adventure you'll be getting into when you join in...

A big thanks to all...

As Vista preparation is in full swing, there are some of friends who have come forward and have helped us spread the word about Vista Corporate Evening. It would be unfair without at least a brief mention about them.

We, the PGSEM Vista 2010 team, thank Shrinidhi Hande for readily agreeing to and for putting up posts on Vista in his blog and for coordinating with Business Blogging, Callzee, Brandworx  for detailed posts about the upcoming events.

We also thank Raveesh Kumar for writing about Vista Corporate Evening in his blog.

Last, but the not the least, we would like to thank all the PGSEMers who are burning the midnight oil to make sure that Vista Corporate Evening becomes a success.

Events for the Corporate @ Vista 2010!

As the countdown takes place towards one of India's largest bizfests (Vista 2010, duh!), you tend to feel an odd sense of the days just slipping away. And then you realize that this post is surrounded by posts which remind you of the upcoming blitzkrieg!

Yes, we can get very dramatic. It's not every day that you get a chance to go back and take part in some group events, eat some cheap food, rock your head to someone and have a lot of fun! Well, actually most of us do that every day.. the meetings, the cheap food, the "Yes Boss!", "Yes team!", "Yes, (betterhalf)", not much fun though. Well, all that's about to change! If you choose to not just read this post, but do something about it!

The Corporates now finally have a chance to get back! Here's your chance to take part in some fun-filled events, relive the exciting times during college, and network as much as you can! We have Corporate events at Vista, and we want you... yes, YOU! (Even that quiet guy lurking near his keyboard there), to come and take part!

The links at the website is here, here and here! We even made an awesome poster, just for you! Now, come over!
