To admit all the students to industry may not be possible always. If the students are able to develop themselves as entrepreneurs, then a lot of industry and innovations will take place. 
Interacting with audience Mr. A. S. Oberoi, Founder , MBA Rendezvous spoke  entrepreneurship is reflection of one's DNA, you got to be very clear on the parameters of why, how & when would you like to turn yourself as Entrepreneur? Mantra for becoming an Entrepreneur is I , me and we. It is 'me' who needs to be challenged repeatedly as that will trigger confidence to be sure to launch yourself as Entrepreneur, later execution part will be dependent on 'we' as resources and team building etc.
