She said, the event would be conducted in three rounds. “The first qualifier round, will be a quiz held on the Dare2Compete (D2C) platform on December 13. It will check the acumen of students in the domains of strategy, finance, and marketing and will help enhance an understanding of core management concepts along with their practical applications,” Agrawal said.
“The second round will start on December 15 with the release of the problem statement. The third and final round will be conducted on December 26, 2020. The top ten teams will be shortlisted to present their proposed solution in front of an esteemed panel of judges,” she said.
