Xavier’s Commerce Society (XCS)
Pre-eminence is the virtue that embodies the journey of all the students at the Xavier’s Commerce Society (XCS). The representative society of the Department of Commerce has borne testimony to a host of events scheduled throughout the academic year, and even the COVID-19 pandemic could not hinder the conduct of a string of successful events.
XCS commenced its endeavours with Innovision’19; a week-long intra-college event encompassing diverse career-oriented workshops and seminars hosted by The World Bank, Reserve Bank of India, Deloitte and Actuators, among others. It was a remarkable opportunity for students to gain exposure. Innovsion’20, organized virtually, received unprecedented responses as well.
Inception was organized exclusively for the first-year students of the college, aiming at appraising the patience, composure and pressure handling ability of the students. Inception’20 was conducted online and received more than 500+ registrations across all departments.
One of the most exciting competitions in the college, X-Calibre evaluates the participants to the core, in terms of multitasking competencies and the ability to flourish in a fast-paced milieu. Acknowledged for its intense competitive participation, it has cemented its place which is heavily anticipated by the young stalwarts of the college.
Corporate Prodigy, the two-day event, organized exclusively for the high school students hailing from versatile premiere schools in the country, aims to encourage meaningful contemplation and give them a glimpse of the corporate life awaiting them. Corporate Prodigy’20 was a two-day event which witnessed substantial participation from ten reputed schools across the country.
The overriding belief at XCS is that the optimal way to learn is to experience it in reality. X-Pedition happens to be one such initiative in this light. In August 2019, the students of the Department of Commerce visited Anmol Industries, intending to impart to them the exposure to the internal functioning of a corporate enterprise.
Youthink, a globally-recognized annual business journal (ISSN: 2347-6222) seeks to proffer a platform for enabling individuals to voice their opinions on various business, social and geopolitical issues. The year 2019 witnessed the launch of the fourteenth edition of Youthink themed ‘Redemption’, which strived to decipher the developmental trajectories in the perceptions of people and how humankind has redeemed itself from its thoughts. Youthink XIV saw the pinnacle of legacy of its past editions by associating with Mr. Saurav Ganguly for an interview.
Insignia Internationals’20 proffered a unique spectrum of events, specifically designed to test an individual’s skill in every management domain.
The flagship event of the society and one of the most recognized fests in the eastern part of India, Insignia is the only business fest in the college that attracts participation from international academic institutions. The event holistically tests participants about multiple spheres of the business world. The theme for Insignia 2020 was ‘Reigns of the Empire’. The theme portrayed the moments and ideas in history, which shaped humankind and how the cultural evolution occurred through the social impacts of an ideology.
