The volatility and complexities of the economic environment in India has made not only growth but also survival for businesses a challenge. In spite of the odds, there has been an increase in the number of entrepreneurial ventures that have come up recently. Entrepreneurs are one of the key drivers of growth in any developing economy like India. They act as the facilitators of change by creating new products, solutions, business strategies etc apart from supporting the society by creating jobs, carrying out various CSR activities and the like.
According to the EY G20 Entrepreneurship Barometer 2013, India is ranked in the 5th position for coordinated support. India’s abundant resources needs to be better utilized to help create a robust and nurturing atmosphere for its aspiring entrepreneurs. Apart from a healthy ecosystem and positive culture, right education also plays a vital role in duly guiding the budding talent. The report also ranks India at 11th position for entrepreneurship culture and 20th position for education and training, thus clearly setting out the need for bringing about considerable changes in the education system. Inspiring ideas and ambitious dreams have lead to the expansion of India’s entrepreneurial landscape. However, the inability to rightly channelize the ideas and talent will create an unsupportive framework for them if not suitably mentored.
Hence, to help and lead aspiring entrepreneurs on to the right path, educational institutes are tproviding various modules in entrepreneurship. Prin. L. N. Welingkar Institute of Management Development & Research (WeSchool), one of the leading B-Schools in India has formulated a specialised course, ‘Post Graduate Program in Entrepreneurship (PGP- Entrepreneurship)’, based on the AAA (Acquisition, Application and Assimilation of Knowledge) model similar to that at Harvard Business School.
To provide more insights on the program and its outcomes, WeSchool will be organizing multiple free seminars on the theme, ‘Gain insights about the 11 months Entrepreneurship Program’ on 11th and 12th July, 2014. These will be beneficial for 1st and 2nd generation entrepreneurs, SME owners from diverse industry sectors and aspiring entrepreneurs interested in starting their own business or from established family run businesses. The session will help in getting information on the course structure, program highlights, eligibility, application procedure, fee structure, career opportunities and the like. It will also focus on the current business scenario in India and how the course will help entrants in shaping themselves by honing their skills and capabilities to be able to lead their businesses successfully in this complex world.
For the convenience of the students across the city, these free seminars are being held at Andheri and Thane on 11th and Weschool campus (Matunga) and Vashi on 12th July 2014.
