The NSBM programme is of six months duration, from July to December 2011. The selected 20 Student Brand Managers have the important role of bringing the brand closer to the general public and especially to the Indian student community via creative marketing initiatives. Following training, these students are to work with the company officials on a number of projects. Also, apart from working on different projects, these students will develop unique events for creating a buzz around the brand in the student community.

The competition was open to all students who have completed one year of management studies. Participants had to complete a pre-specified task which was judged by eminent personalities such as ad guru Prahlad Kakkar of Genesis Films, Autocar India Magazine Editor, Hormazd Sorabjee and Consults Incorporated CEO, Harish Bijoor, all from the automotive and advertising world.

There were over 2843 entries from 450 colleges in 15 Indian cities. Around 20-25 entries were shortlisted from each of the four zones, with zonal finals happening in Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai and Bangalore in front of the jury. Out of these, 36 were selected for the final presentation in Mumbai, with 18 finally winning the competition.

Congratulations Subir-you have done us proud!
