What is Helios?

ABOUT HELIOS
Helios is a cross functional business management game. The invitees to this are undergraduate colleges and the purpose is a 'rite of initiation' of sorts. What better than a game that borrows from the ancient God of the Sun? Helios brings together bright and curious minds from diverse disciplines and tests raw management potential – can they innovate, compete and perform in teams? This peep into the world of management coats the rigor and vitality of a career in management with a strong dose of fun.

The main game is a part of XIMB's annual extravaganza - Xpressions. For more details on Xpressions please visit-
