After the success of Ocumen 2010, IIM Lucknow’s student committee Oculus again played host to 17 schools selected from all across India.

Ocumen provides a platform for class XI and XII school children selected from all over India to get a first hand feel of management. IIM Lucknow played management mentors to students representing India’s Best schools. With more than 170 schools participating in the prelims of OCUMEN 2011, the latest edition saw 17 schools on the IIM Lucknow campus with 12 outstation schools and 5 local schools.

The inauguration ceremony was graced by Prof. M. Akbar (Dean IIM Lucknow) and Prof. Ajay Garg (Chairman, Student Affairs). After the initial introductions, the schools grilled it out in the Operations event (Opsessed) and the Marketing event (MarketRace).

The winners were Mallya Aditi International School from Bangalore and La Martiniere School for Boys from Kolkata, respectively. After that the students were treated to a dose of laughter by the Radio Mirchi RJ Abhishek. And after lunch it was business as usual with Finance event (Finquizit) and consulting event (Guesstimate). The winners were Dayawati Modi School from Meerut and Calcutta International School respectively. Army public school won the first prize in quiz, which was the fifth and final event.

Adding the cumulative scores of all the five events, La Martiniere for boys, Kolkata has emerged as the overall champions of Ocumen 2011. It was Calcutta International School from Kolkata and Army Public School from Lucknow which secured the second and third places respectively.

As promised by Team Oculus, there was something in it for everyone. The teachers had two workshops by the IIM Lucknow faculty Prof. Sushil Kumar and Prof. Pankaj Kumar. Needless to say, there was a stimulating interaction which led to new ideas being discussed for pedagogy in high schools. With the quiz finals in the convocation grounds, OCUMEN had a fitting climax.
