INTER-VARSITY DEBATE AT SXC

Posted : 07 Dec 2015

The SXC Alumni Association is holding a International Intervarsity Challenge Debate on Saturday, 12th December 2015 at 4:30 PM at St Xavier's College Auditorium, Kolkata, in which the following Colleges/ Universities will be participating: Oxford University, Cambridge University, London School of Economics, Toronto University, NSU Dhaka University, Karachi University, NUJS, Law College Bangalore, Loreto College, Scottish Church College, Jadvapur University and St Xavier's College.

The motion of the Debate is "The house believes that Education kills Entrepreneurship".

The topic is indeed very relevant in the context of the Education System present in the world today. Are we producing graduates who would much rather be a glorified clerk rather than an entrepreneur willing to take risks and create jobs? On the other hand is entrepreneurship in a technologically advanced environment at all possible without education? We are sure there will be a war of words like never before heard in Kolkata.

We believe that this is one of the best Inter-varsity Debates ever in Kolkata. We would request you to attend the Debate. We hope that you would find the Debate Intellectually stimulating and thought provoking.
