In today’s highly competitive global economy, students are looking for more than just the traditional business degrees, they are looking for practical programmes that can give them the ability to identify new opportunities, generate new ideas and create new products. These require a new set of skills and insights; these require entrepreneurial thinking. In today’s complex world, with greater job scarcity, students increasingly need practical skills to be able to create jobs for themselves. Fundamentally, today, students need to know how to make things happen, β€˜practically’, rather than just theoretically.

To equip all our graduates with creativity and the practical skills needed for solving real societal problems by turning them into opportunities for creating innovative new ventures. The programme is designed in a way that students end the programme with a β€˜real’ business.
