1. CONSTRAT Transforming Strategy

Who says B-Schools are simply temples of learning? From hereon, B-Schools wont remain just B-Schools and MBA
students would no longer be just students. Gone would be the concept of Companies competing with their rivals
only on the industrial floor. Companies would bid, outbid, pick up stakes, outperform, leverage partnerships, stage
alliances, fight for a board position and all this on the floor of CONSTRAT, the upcoming Strategy & Consulting
Consortium of the Xavier Institute of Management, Bhubnaneswar (XIMB)
