Important Changes in ONIA 2005-2006

ALL TEN (10) teams that passed the initial stage are now qualified to present their business plans to the panel of judges on Feb 17 (Friday), instead of just the top 5 teams.

The format will be similar to the one used in international competitions such as the Sasin Moot Corp Competition

Conference Room

Feb 16 - Round Table discussions with the judges. All semi-finalists are invited to attend. This will be from 5-7pm at the 3rd floor of Flores Hall, Foundation University. You will have the opportunity not just to meet the judges but
