The Summit of Olympus is a three day Skill Building Workshop based Summit presented by The Office of the Dean, Studentsí Welfare, The Career and Counseling Cell, Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies, University of Delhi and Central Placement Cell of University of Delhi. The Summit will bring together some of the best minds in the country to develop and hone their leadership potential.

The target audience thus consists of seniors and juniors pursuing a Bachelors degree who are driven by a sense of purpose and a quest to learn more.
The theme for the summit is inspired by Greek Mythology. Named after the abode of Greek immortals, the Summit of Olympus is a 7-session summit on all aspects of leadership encompassing communication, conflict resolution, nurturing individuals, influencing people, motivating employees, leading and managing people and building an effective team. The Greek influence can be observed in that each workshop has been named after a Greek God, bringing forth a confluence between the content of the session and what that particular immortal stands for. For instance, the session on creating breakthrough communication has been christened "Hermes' Hour." Hermes was the messenger of gods; he was a patron of orators and poets
The fact that eminent personalities and trainers will be conducting the workshops is likely to turn heads however to increase individual learning and stake at the Summit. A total of 60 students will be short listed on the basis of a Competitive Application Process developed by some of the most experienced members of faculty and bright young minds, using the most recent psychometric techniques possible; thus assuring a conducive environment where rigorous learning and development can take place.
