Faculty Development Programme


Entrepreneurship can be successfully taught like any other discipline – Today, there are worthwhile testimonies to this claim. Prestigious management institutes offer full-fledged courses on entrepreneurship and many students have ventured into the field but the incidence needs to be enhanced. The Government of India, through its newly established Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE), focuses on developing entrepreneurial and employability skills among the youth through entrepreneurship education and training, advocacy and easy access to entrepreneurship networks. The Ministry has been also trying to deliver world class Learning and Management System (LMS) to equip potential as well as early stage entrepreneurs. The Govt. of India has launched several programmes to develop entrepreneurs in sectors such as manufacturing, IT and digital services, healthcare, and sanitary and hygiene.

To achieve aforementioned objectives the Government has launched pan India programmes, viz. ‘Start-up India’, ‘Stand-up India’, ‘Make-in India’, ‘Digital India’, ‘Swachha Bharat (Clean India)’, that are aimed at further propelling entrepreneurship movement in India. Sculpting its mandate around this mission, EDII looks forward to increasing its efforts towards cultivating entrepreneurial bent of mind and knowledge in youth. The most crucial change agents in this process are the faculty members specializing in teaching entrepreneurship.

Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India (EDII), backed by over more than 30 years of experience in the field, designed a module to develop a cadre of trained faculty members involved in teaching entrepreneurship at the school and college levels and has been implementing Faculty Development Programmes successfully across the country and abroad. The Institute has been receiving enthusiastic response for this programme from the academic community.
