About the Programmes offered by EDII

EDII also offers two-year flagship programme PGDM-Business Entrepreneurship, which is an innovative milestone-based learning initiative whereby every student can build their new enterprise step by step while studying at EDII itself. During this course, learning is also imparted on leveraging the strengths of family business management and successfully implementing practices that drive high performance, shareholder loyalty and healthy family relationships.

Views of EDII’s Director General about the Programme

Commenting on the launch of the new program, Dr. Sunil Shukla, Director General, EDII, said, ‘Indian entrepreneurs face two major challenges in scaling up their ventures. First is raising funds at reasonable cost and second is navigating the complexities of innovation in the product or service offering. Hence, the new programme focuses on both these aspects in detail and aims to facilitate the management of innovation and venture development from foundation to advanced stages.”

Dr. Shukla further stated that start-ups in their early years have very limited resources to raise funds as Private Equity and Venture Capital enter at a much later stage. “However, most of the start-ups, despite good business models, fail because they are unable to raise angel capital. This programme will develop financial skills of entrepreneurs and help them in applying their entrepreneurial skills in real life situations. For the first time we are combining our academic and business incubation expertise to provide a holistic course layout,” he added.

Details of the Programme

Spread over four semesters, the programme also includes a residency learning module as well as a venture establishment phase at the Institute’s technology business incubator ‘Centre for Advancing & Launching Enterprises (CrAdLE)’.
