About Fest:

Students of the National Institute of Industrial Engineering (NITIE) are all set to participate in Mumbai’s biggest street selling extravaganza on 8th August, 2015 – Maha Mandi. Through this grand event, NITIE students have been doing their bit towards the society by selling educational items designed by Navnirmiti and REAP, NGOs working towards the uplifting of economically underprivileged children and women. Maha Mandi is a one of its kind initiative that elegantly balances management education and social responsibility. It is also recognized as a unique educational initiative to promote a social cause by the ministry of HRD. In 2009, NITIE was given the B school Innovation Award for conceptualizing the event. The very market that they will be facing as corporates, they will be facing during Maha Mandi. It will teach them all they need to understand about the consumer and how to apply it in their classrooms while at the same time, learning the importance of giving back to society. This is the essence of Maha Mandi. Since its inception in 2005, every year Mandi brings with itself the energy of 1000 odd management students who take to the streets of Mumbai, unfettered by the rains that lash the financial capital of the country. Mandi fever grips not just the students of NITIE but also the management students of NMIMS, JBIMS, K J Somaiya Institute, TISS, IIM Indore – Mumbai Campus, IITB – SJSOM, etc. The distinguished corporate leaders who have been associated with Mandi in the past are Mr. Shiv Kumar, MD, Nokia India, Mr.Veda Prakash Arya, COO Pantaloon India, Mr. Dev Bhattacharya, Exec. VP, Aditya Birla Group, Mr. R Suresh, MD, Stanton Chase International, Mr. Rajesh Aggarwal, Bayer Pharmaceuticals, Dr. Rakesh Sinha, COO, Godrej Consumer Products. Maha Mandi has also seen the presence of Celebrities like Ms. Sushmita Sen, Ms. Nandita Das, Ms. Yuktha Mookhey, Ms. Preeti Jhangiani, Mrs. Aditi Gowitrika, Mr. Mukesh Rishi, Ms. Gaelyn Mendonca Like every year, this year too the event will witness overwhelming participation of management students pledging to the Maha Mandi motto of "Socho, becho, seekho". “Learn to sell - Sell to Learn”
