Xavier School of Management-XLRI, Jamshedpur, has launched a Post Graduate Diploma in Management in Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Venture Creation (PGDM-IEV) this year.
The last date for submitting applications is May 31, 2022.
The programme aims to equip students with skills, analytical tools, perspectives, and experiences that prepare them for careers as autonomous entrepreneurs, family-business entrepreneurs, or entrepreneurs in corporate settings.
“Whether a student wants to start a business while in school, join an emerging business, give impetus to a family business, or set the groundwork to launch a new firm later in his or her career, the programme aims to provide preparation for all of these exciting options. More information can be found by logging on the XLRI website,” a spokesperson of the premier B-school said.
The special strength of this programme is that it combines theory with practice, providing students the opportunity to test the theories, models, and strategies learned in the classroom by creating real business plans, working on other field projects, and gaining access and insight from leaders in the entrepreneurial business community.
The full-time AICTE-approved course in entrepreneurship offers structured long-term support for aspiring entrepreneurs by combining management education with incubation/acceleration. It approaches management education from the point of view start-ups and is designed to deliver learning that is relevant and useful to entrepreneurs. As a result of this progressing and integrative approach, an aspiring entrepreneur/student doesn’t have to choose between an MBA and starting their own venture.
There are two tracks in the programme: Start-up Track for those who wish to start a new venture from scratch and Family Business Track for those who wish to continue in their family business, strengthen it and take in exciting new directions.
“Many students want education that equips them to be more than just job-seekers. They wish to follow their passion and be job-creators,” XLRI Jamshedpur director Fr Paul Fernandes said in a statement.
