The Xavier’s Management Society
The Xavier’s Management Society is an amalgamation of ideas, opportunities, and learning. We aspire to create value for those who associate with our society and provide a platform to gain meaningful experience and organizational skills. In the new academic year 2019-20, the society was determined to pursue greatness. The members of XMS welcomed the new batch of students with an event exclusively for the first years: X-Genesis’19- A Visionaries’ Battleground. Featuring over 200 participating teams and 6 grueling rounds, X-Genesis’19 was a tremendous success.
The finale witnessed inspiring speaker sessions led by Mr. Sahil Shah, Comedian and Youth Influencer, Mr. Mudassar Hussain, Managing Partner at Ogilvy and Mr. Rajiv Ghosh, CEO at Selvel One Group. Their captivating stories inspired students to follow their dreams unfazed by obstacles.
We embarked upon our journey towards an inter-college debating fest: X-Confero’19- Witness the Word War. Over 100 aspirants contested a series of intriguing debates, and two teams qualified for the final. The motion for the final round read: “This house believes that economic development should be prioritized over pollution control in developing countries”. X-Confero’19 concluded with Mr. Bibek Debroy, Chairman of the Economic Advisory Council to the Prime Minister, as the speaker in an engaging discussion with the students. As part of our constant endeavour to give back to the society, we took up several initiatives this year. In December 2019, we celebrated Christmas with the children of Anandaghar, an HIV Positive Centre for kids that provide homeless children with a home and proper treatment for HIV. We also organized an eye and health checkup camp for over 300 underprivileged people in Uluberia in the month of January 2020, to celebrate the completion of 10 years since XMS’ inception. With a team of 80 members and a myriad of ideas in mind, we began preparations for our flagship event- The Xavier’s Management Convention’20- a national level management fest. The theme for this year was ‘Olympus: Clash for Divinity’. The Xavier’s Management Convention witnessed a battle of merit among students representing renowned colleges from across the country.
We had the pleasure of hosting Mr. Rahul Subramanian, Comedian and Youth Influencer, and Mr. Sandeep Patil, Former Member of the BCCI, as speakers for the Convention. They motivated the students to earnestly pursue their aspirations without compromising with the value of hard work and perseverance. 2019-20 has been a successful period as the society rose to unprecedented heights. The smooth execution of the events is a result of the collective efforts of all the members. At XMS, we place the foremost emphasis on diligently pursuing every endeavour and inculcating a team spirit to support each other at every step of the journey. We live by our motto to explore different aspects of this dynamic world, meet a group of driven personalities and form an everlasting connection with these individuals.
We owe our success to the constant support of Father Principal- Rev. Dr. Fr. Dominic Savio, S.J.,
Father Vice Principal- Rev Fr. Peter Arockiam, S.J., Dean of Department of BMS- Professor Sougata, Banerjee, our Professor-in-Charge, Dr. Sukanya Sarkhel, and Assistant Professor-in-Charge, Dr. Supriyo Patra.
