Greetings from Team Avant Garde! We welcome you all after a long summer break. I am sure you missed us as much as we missed you.

The new batch of MBA 2015-17 have joined us for the next 2 years. We would like to welcome and congratulate all our juniors for being a part of the IIT Kanpur MBA program.  We wish them good luck for future endeavors.

With the arrival of new batch, there has been a change in Avant Garde Team. We are happy to announce that 3 new members have joined the editing team. The new members are “Manpreet Singh”, “K Prakash Raju” and “Utkarsh Maurya”. We would like to extend a warm welcome to the new members.

This is a Junior’s Special edition.

We start the edition with MBA 2015-17 article written by Junior’s Alumni Relations team. It describes the orientation and initial experience at IITK. The article also describes various tasks accomplished during orientation and also the expectations from IITK MBA.

Next we have Chhavi Kataria who did her summer internship with Juniper, telling about her experience working there.

The next section then has two articles on current affairs. In the first one, Kinsuk Ghatak explains about “Make in India” campaign and how it is beneficial to India. In the second one, Utkarsh Maurya tries to explain the reason behind global falling of oil prices.

The next article is a philosophical one. In the article “How about becoming a good person first”, Pallavi makes an argument that it is important to become a good person morally and socially.

With a revamped “Prabandhan” round the corner, we end this edition with the big one. In this article, PR Team gives insights into “Prabandhan”, a management fest of IIT Kanpur. This year under the umbrella of “Prabandhan”, we have ACCS, Cognition and Optima which deals with Analytics, IT and Operations & Marketing events to be held on 25th, 26th and 27th September 2015 at IME.

We are hopeful that you will enjoy this edition. Reviews, comments and articles from readers are always welcome. The next edition won’t be that long away. We will meet you next month with the “Prabandhan special” edition. Till then Good Bye, Alvida! Enjoy.

Team Avant Garde.
