OPERACY 2011: The KIAMS Challenges

Posted on: November 14, 2011

It is that time of the year when KIAMS organizes OPERACY – an All India Annual Management Fest loaded with well thought out competitions and several other brain challenging Management related events.

OPERACY 2011 will be held simultaneously on 19 and 20 November, 2011 at both the KIAMS locations in Harihar and Pune.

In Harihar, PROISTEMI is for teams of budding entrepreneurs. KIAMS has invited entries from B School students across India. The response is already phenomenal.

Here’s how it works: Teams of two from B Schools have entered. All of them believe in their skills as entrepreneurs and these beliefs will be put to the test. Because PROISTEMI is all about thinking like an entrepreneur – on your feet, asleep or awake. You are those unique teams who believe in doing the same thing differently and making it all work. You are the leaders and know that the buck ends with you. Phenomenal responsibility, equally phenomenal rewards.

At PROISTEMI you need to behave like an entrepreneur in the different entrepreneurial situations you will be thrown into. The challenge is extraordinary and the reward is great. The winning team takes home prizes worth over Rs. 50,000.

KIAMS Pune throws open it’s gates to the Best Graduate. This contest is open to undergraduate participants from all colleges. Again, it’s the thought, the planning and the execution that are the criteria. Undergrads will be put to the test. In fact they will be put to many tests. The winners take home prizes worth over Rs. 20,000! Each participating team will have three team members belonging to the same college. Many teams from the same college can participate, but registrations have to be made separately.

Another contest happening at KIAMS Pune is the Best Corporate. Like the name suggests only teams from the corporate world can participate in this one. And there’s a twist. They cannot have work experience of more than five years. That’s right. Each team can have two members that belong to the same company. More than one team from one corporate can participate, however, they need to register separately. The Best Corporate wins prizes worth over Rs. 30,000.

All qualifying teams invited to KIAMS will be provided with free accommodation and food. They will be reimbursed for their to and fro travel by second class train or via the shortest bus route.

The last date for registration was 4 November, 2011 for the Best Entrepreneur.  The Best Undergrad teams  and the  Best Corporate teams would have sent in their registrations on 14  November, 2011.

To send applications for participation, B schools should visit and Corporates should visit  link for more information. For any query write to us at Get set teams for the ultimate rush that could win you accolades and prizes that would make your institutes smile with pride!
