BLoC Boardroom Challenge

About the event

The corner office, presentations, discussions, ideation, problem-solving and team-building — this is the daily life of most CXOs. Despite the many challenges, one cannot but aspire to the privilege and pride the title of a CXO brings. What if you could be in the shoes of a CXO for a day? Do you have it in you to tackle a challenging business problem, solve it with your fellow board members, compete with equally capable teams and come out the winner?

BLoC Boardroom Challenge is a one-of-a-kind competition for MBA students and B-schoolers. Go on, don the hat of a CXO and work together as a team to solve a boardroom-level business problem. The Challenge will be across three levels: a preliminary round, semi-finals across eight cities and a grand finale.

  • Level 1: Online test of reasoning, decision-making, analytical and critical thinking
  • Level 2: Multi-City Semi-Final
  • Level 3: Grand Finale (Chennai)
