Student Clubs and its activities hold the most memorable time for students. Experience of a business school can never be restricted to academic and class room learning but rather goes beyond learning from books to all round development of students.
Every year students join DBS from all parts of the country, hence, bringing in values and interests from several different cultures across India and Neighbouring Countries. Enrolling for a club of their choice and organizing interesting activities throughout the year provides them an opportunity to know their peers better, learn to work in a team, learn to work under time and budget constraints.
In myriad ways, it provides them a flavour of executing/organizing events and eventually, learn some management lessons while having some fun.
