Shereen Bhan, Managing Editor, CNBC-TV18 said, “Marketing is a crucial aspect of business continuity in current times. 'Lessons in Marketing Excellence' is a platform that's thriving for the nation's business landscape. After a decade-old run of being the most prestigious competition, the objective was to make a promising impact in this new normal and we are glad with the responses we have received this year too. This year, we added to the grandeur and legacy of the competition by forming an alumni group of L.I.M.E with the previous participants to help this year’s students. We would also like to thank HUL, who have been with us on this journey.”
“Over the years, L.I.M.E. has grown into one of the most prestigious tooth-and-nail competitions among India’s top business schools, to find the country’s brightest and best young marketers. We are glad to partner with CNBC-TV18 and their extended support in helping L.I.M.E. reach the heights it has reached today. Irrespective of being in the physical world or virtual world, I think L.I.M.E. should be a great experience for students,” said Sanjiv Mehta, Chairman and Managing Director, HUL.
