Everything serves as a solid force, driving students to push their boundaries and get better with each passing day. While there is plenty of emphasis on academics, everyone is encouraged to develop their extracurricular and co-curricular abilities too, by taking part in all kinds of workshops and seminars.

KCL – KSOM’s Cricket League

KSOM students have been organizing their own T20 cricket tournament called KCL since 2010. It has the same format as IPL, with team owners purchasing players with virtual money in player auctions. Every year the event starts with a friendly match between the staff and the faculty, followed by day-night matches between the participating teams. The playground overlooking the hostel rooms becomes the perfect venue for nail-biting cricket matches.

Campus Magazine

KSOM’s campus magazine ‘Pravah’ was launched by the school’s Literary Society in the year 2010. It features both non-management and management articles written by faculty members and students. The magazine has had six issues since its launch and has received widespread accolades for setting new benchmarks each time.

Section matches

This one’s a major event which features a wide number of competitions (over 100) between the sections of two MBA batches. Some of these competitions are creative games, management games, outdoor sports events, indoor sports events etc. The event is entirely organized and managed by the students, with every section having its own T-shirt, banner and logo. In the end, a champion section is announced based on a point-based system.

Service towards the under-privileged

At KSOM, students actively contribute to the social cause by collecting stationery, blankets, clothes etc. from the campus and then donating them to the needy people staying near the campus. This activity is ongoing and happens all through the year. Apart from this, a NSS (National Service Scheme) wing also runs at the campus, which enables students to indulge in community development and social activities on a regular basis. As a part of this initiative, students get to visit the neighbouring slums where they get a better understanding of their problems, and then offer suggestions to solve the same.

Sports Committee

Sports forms an integral part of the KSOM life. The institute has a well-managed sports committee that takes care of various sports activities (both outdoor and indoor) organized in the campus. The committee organizes all kinds of sports events like football tournaments, table tennis events and cricket tournaments in the campus.

Student Mentorship Program

In KIIT School of Management (KSOM), students are mentored by assigned faculty. Faculty mentors play a vital role in nurturing and shaping the character of the students in multiple dimensions in addition to extending advice for facilitating learning. Effective student-Faculty engagement remains central to the students’ overall development to emerge as management professionals and responsible value adding members to the society and community.

Events and Cultural committee

There is a separate Events and Cultural Committee that actively puts in efforts to celebrate the cultural activities and festivals of different parts of India, embracing and celebrating along with students from diverse backgrounds.

Hostel days

Despite all the odds and hardships faced in the hostel life, no hostel student can deny that every minute spent at the hostel is definitely worth living. From a race to bathe first in the morning, to midnight cooking sessions, to those tiffs for the corner spots in the rooms, to those birthday parties, to Wi-Fi fights, to those group studies (which hardly involve any study!), every moment spent in the hostel becomes an integral part of the students’ lives.
