A potpourri of activities MHRM students are not like typical MBA students who are always busy with presentations and case studies. With equal importance being given to co-curricular activities, holistic development is the motto of MHRM. Each and every student is a member of a MHRM committee. Students choose their field of interest and a committee according to it. Moreover they can choose from a wide spectrum of clubs and societies operating in the campus. These societies are extremely diverse and are independently run by the student community. Some MHRM committees are:
