‘Ardent’ – means zeal, conviction and passionate. Ace-undergraduate students started ‘Ardent’ since last year 2017 as a very first inter-college business competition for higher-secondary level with a view to provide 11th and 12th graders a platform to explore their business ideas and help them to think out of the box.
It was IInd edition of ‘Ardent’ – A two-day national-level management fest for higher-secondary school organized by undergraduate students of Ace Institute of management which included participation from 14 different colleges from all over Nepal. It consisted of different marketing and business competitions thereby giving chance to higher-secondary students to explore their theoretical knowledge via practical approach, helping them to think out-of-box.
Writing final reports in very limited deadline, facing huge audience in a press-conference, thinking and making instant business plans and presenting them in front of strict judging panels was indeed a great learning experience for all students and a treat for the audience.
Students also got great insights about current business scenarios from great business-persons of Nepal. Ace Higher Secondary bagged the best school award in the event leaving behind other 13 schools. Overall, ‘Ardent’ was a great fun-cum-learning platform for all the participating students, with great fruitful and enriching experiences.
