Student Affairs


Agenda of the Club:

Strategy is an integral part of any business. Consequently, it is important for aspiring managers to not only study strategy in a classroom setting, but also understand the practical intricacies and nuances.

We at Strategist help people in recognizing and developing their key skills. Whether you wish to specialize in Finance or Marketing; or you want to be an Entrepreneur; you need to be a ‘STRATEGIST’. Strategist provides that environment to all the fellow members. We seek to retain, extend and leverage the interest of the students in the area of Strategy and act as a pillar of the strategic activities in the institute. As Strategy fits with all the functional areas - Finance, Marketing, IT, HR; it works closely with all other academic clubs to gain synergies and provide a holistic approach.

The strategist engagement is not just limited to developing core consulting knowledge and a strategic bend of mind, but the team is also closely involved in event management, creativity, and marketing. They get to work on multiple team-building exercises along with a few of the brightest brains in the country.

Strategist is oriented to reach greater heights with the efforts put in by the students. The vision of the club is to “grow to the stature of an independent consulting firm operating out of MDI”.
