Prashant Mohan Mathew won the Best Manager event of SCMHRD, Pune

Augustus, the hunt for the Best Student Manager in the country was the flagship event of Neev 2016, the third largest B-School festival in India, hosted by SCMHRD, Pune.

The selection process for Augustus took place in three stages, starting with a Business Quiz, the selected candidates performing a Case Study and then followed by a CV shortlisting process. Ten participants from the top institutes of the country were invited for the campus rounds which took place over all the three days of the festival. Encompassing 72 hours of gruelling exercises, the event tested the determination, endurance and business acumen of the participants. With a section of participants getting eliminated every day, the grand finale saw the top 4 teams facing a stressful round involving dicey questions and SIBM Bengaluru finally emerged as the victor in a winner take it all event. The competition was truly a litmus test for all the budding managers who were participating in the event.

The winner was awarded a cash prize of INR 75,000/- and goodies worth INR 75,000/-
