Knowledge is the treasure of a wise man. So it would be a reasonable statement to make that if he abandons his pursuit of knowledge, he is probably stagnating in life free flowing further away from the mark of an enlightened individual.
… Because knowledge is power…and wisdom is realizing it.
The Consultancy @ SIMSR Committee successfully inaugurated its first event “Bootcamp” which was conducted on the first day of The Consultancy Week. What better than knowledge enhancing speeches; by some of the best in the industry, made right here in Somaiya!

The session on “Financial Modelling” was then immediately succeeded by a talk on “Digital Marketing” by Mr. Rahul Avasthy, who we are proud to say, is an alumnus of Somaiya! With his humour laced matter of fact style of speaking, he had our immediate attention!

At the end of the day, when the mikes were set down and each went his way, what remained mutual amongst each, was the gain of knowledge. With new insights and new ideas brought to the table, we all went back a little richer and a little smarter than before.
How you may ask?…
To reiterate… Because knowledge is power.. and wisdom is realizing it.
