XIMB- MUN 2016

Model United Nations
 
Model United Nations is a competition that seeks to simulate the proceedings of the United Nations through role-playing delegates. It is an opportunity to learn a lot about international politics and sharpen one’s researching, public speaking, and writing skills, as well as critical thinking, teamwork, and leadership abilities.
    Model United Nations at XIMB aims at giving you an opportunity to find solutions to an unprecedented set of problems and crises plaguing various geographies across the world, today. It is a platform to sharpen your debating and diplomacy skills.
