SIBM Pune takes a holistic approach to education, encompassing academics and other cultural pursuits with the vision of “enabling people to lead remarkable lives thereby transcending the world to a better place.” With this in mind, the ‘Realm of Illusions’ theme is woven throughout this year’s Transcend. The theme embodies the idea of creativity and innovation, thereby welcoming the Symbians and the B-School masterminds across the country to think beyond the ordinary and achieve the exceptional through the marvelous events and artist nights lined up just for them.
The official launch of Transcend 2023 began with an exuberant start in November 2022, with a soulful music performance by Ved Prabhu, aka Hagrid Sings, followed by a stand-up performance by the celebrated comedian – Yash Rathi. The crowd was enthralled by his set and on-stage antics, especially his delivery style of punchlines and audience engagement.
As a pre-buzz event for Transcend, the Co-Curricular Team of SIBM Pune organized a Bonfire Night wherein students sat under the stars and enjoyed beautiful baritones, singing and swinging with the tunes of winds.
