Gone are the days when excellence was only about classrooms and textbooks. Industries seek candidates who are not only technically sound but also who are well rounded and can think outside the box. Participating in college fests can make students confident and industry ready. Fests promote students to bring out their latent potential and can make them stand out amongst their peers. They promote students to interact with the right people and build their connections and develop effective soft skills.
Department of Management Studies, IIT Roorkee brings CONFLUENCIA’20, Annual Business Summit. Rapid advances in technology have perpetually kept the business
organizations on their toes. To keep up with the fast-paced and ever-changing needs of the
industry, innovation has become a key factor for a business to succeed and to address this
impact of innovation. IIT Roorkee CONFLUENCIA will be conducted from 14th to 16th February 2020 with the theme “Innovation Shaping Business Dynamics”.
