Khoj ’08, part of SPJIMR’s finance fest was a Biz Quiz open to only Students.. Dhananjay conducting yet another wonderful quiz scaled down the standard of his questions (fortunately 😉 ) appropriately for the student quizzing levels. Great quiz. Nice Experience.. It was a three way battle right till the last couple of questions between NMIMS (Mumbai), IIT-SOM and the 2C2E (UVCE-SPJIMR combine) with NM finally winning with a slim margin of 10 points..

Questions from this quiz available here 

Thats all for now.. Till next time..
