School of Entrepreneurship and Management
The School of Entrepreneurship and Management aims at providing strong fundamental knowledge of the basics of Management. The school focuses on making the students capable to start an entrepreneurial venture. The curriculum of school is designed to inspire and change the mindsets of students from being job seekers to job creators. The school is developed on the mantra of ‘learning through innovative pursuits’.
The School applies learning through experience, observation and understanding of the environment around. In doing so, the school takes the aid of various pedagogical tools and learning resources used innovatively, which include case studies, book reviews, movie-reviews, etc. This triggers the requisite food for thought for newer and newer ideas that can be possible in the Indian business context from the eyes of an entrepreneur.
The three-year UG Programme-BBA (Cooperation) would provide a broad appreciation of management theory and practice from a number of different perspectives combined with specialist knowledge of entrepreneurship. It aims at placing entrepreneurship in a broad social and historical context, exploring the nature of the relationship between the entrepreneur and the society from which he or she emerges. Central themes of the courses include entrepreneurial behaviours, processes and skills and how these relate to new venture creation, corporate enterprise, social entrepreneurship and the management of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
To facilitate learning by observation and hands-on experience, the students would be exposed to in-course projects in courses like Entrepreneurship, Project Management etc. Giving assignments on developing models of cooperative ready for implementation after the completion of the Programme makes them ready with a doable entrepreneurial report ready for submission for financing and starting. This would enable students to start entrepreneurial ventures on their own.
Classes have been so organised against each course to ensure balance in content delivery elements in the classroom like lectures, in-course projects, case studies, movie reviews and library assignments. In all, the School offers eighteen courses. Of these, eight are fundamental courses while the remaining ten courses are application oriented.
The Term Project to be undertaken in the 6th trimester is an exhaustive attempt to enable the students to learn through observation. Each project would be centred on a co-operative to understand the functioning of cooperatives. The completion of the Term Project requires a mandatory submission of the report on the Project to be evaluated by a panel of experts for grading.
All functional areas in Management have been incorporated into the syllabi of the School. The flow of contents in each course has been intensive and complementary to the other courses. In addition, the courses have strong linkages to the other schools of the University.
