Countdown to Delphique 2018



Cerebo, the National Case Study Competition of MDI Gurgaon, aims to get the best minds of the country brainstorm on possible solutions for real-time industry problems. In today’s fast-paced and dynamic business scenario, there are many immediate issues being faced by managers across different sectors. Cerebro provides a hands-on experience of solving such business problems and is a great tool for students to aid them in their quest for becoming effective managers.


For the 3rd year in succession, Cognizant Business Consulting was the Sponsor as well as the Case Study Partner for the event. This year, the Case study was focused on the Finance Domain. Titled ‘NSB Bank – India entry strategy for Wealth Management’ it provided young minds a chance to gain a perspective on the increasingly popular Wealth Management industry
