"You cannot win if you are not at the table. You have to be where the action is!"
Arthashashtra, a flagship case study competition of SIIB, is designed to encourage budding managers to apply their classroom learning into solving real-life transitional and emerging market problems straight out of the corporate world.
The study of management, self-consciousness and agility that leads to superior quality is what Arthashashtra teaches us.
Arthashashtra was started in 2015, sponsored by Park Avenue in its 1 st year and NLPL in its 2 nd year, the event witnessed participation from B-schools pan India.
