Rajagiri National Business Quiz – 2017

 

The flagship event of Rajagiri Centre for Business Studies- Rajagiri National Business Quiz (RNBQ) paved way to the entry of the nation’s best quizzing minds to battle for the title for its 8th edition in 2017. This grand event was held on 14th October 2017. RNBQ stands as one among the best b-quizzing events of the country and is very much evident from the whooping number of registrations that roll up every year. The event had about 2496 registrations taking place from both online cum offline prelims and clocking 1248 teams turning up from both corporate and the student community for the year to clinch the glorious cash prize worth Rs. 3.8 Lakhs. The theme for the event was “charging bull”.

For any event to be successful, both finance and publicity is crucial. RNBQ was fortunate to have Indian Oil Corporation as the title sponsor and NDTV as the media partner. It quantified the brand name and prominence of the event when such premium companies joined hands.

 It was our honor to have Mr. Mitesh Agarwal (Vice-President and CEO of Oracle India) host the event as the quizmaster for the second time. The chief guest of the event was Shri. Paul Antony (IAS), Additional Chief Secretary, Govt. of India. Other honorable dignitaries for the event include- Fr. Jose Alex Oruthayapilly CMI, Director RCBS, Dr. Joseph I Injodey- Executive Director RCBS, Dr. Binoy Joseph- Principal RCSS and Dr. Rosemary Varghese- Assistant PGP Chairperson (Academics and Administration of RCBS).
