“If everybody is thinking alike, then somebody isn’t thinking” –General George Patton
The flagship marketing event of Dhruva is the Cartman of all events. Spread across two equally gruesome rounds, this event has the ability to change the way you approach any case in general. This year, we have tried to make this event as innovative as possible and thus the cases would consist of real-life scenarios from the quirkiest of places you’d never imagine a case study would come from. Only the ones with the right combination of both left and right minds would survive until the end and win the Finale. So, in case you do think, you’re up for the challenge, do read below.
Event Format and Timelines:
The event is divided into 2 phases:
The first round is an online quiz Round, where teams of 2-3 members can participate. The online quiz will be conducted on 12th December from 10 PM. Post our deadline of 6 PM 12th December, teams would be sent the details for the quiz round. Please like us on Facebook to get more updates on the round.
