"A great accomplishment shouldn't be the end of the road, just the starting point for the next leap forward." – Harvey Mackay

Solaris, which gathers its name from the sunny disposition of the city where it was born and nurtured, aspires to be an eclectic mix of industry heavyweights and individuals,who will provide everyone present with a bird's eye view of their inspirational lives.Solaris'15 was a platform to showcase the great strides taken by IIM Udaipur in becoming a leading business school of the country and Solaris'16 is a step further in developing this mindset.

In drawing parallels with the Indian economic context, the journey of the institute and Solaris in general has been nothing short of the aptly titled The Quantum Leap i.e. the Indian economic boom post liberalization. Udaipur, as a city, has shown a tremendous growth from being the city of Mewars to being one of the most beautiful tourist destinations in India. Lately it has also been included under the smart cities mission by the Government of India.

A two-day long extravaganza full of events to keep some of India's most brilliant minds engaged, Solaris is entirely conceptualized and managed by students. From keynote addresses from revered and distinguished luminaries, to stimulating business wisdom through panel discussions, case-study competitions to debates, Solaris aims to be bigger and better with every passing year.
