Against the backdrop that the country needs entrepreneurs to ensure economic development and to create job opportunities, it is only prudent to introduce research programmes in entrepreneurship education to create scholars and thought leaders who can in turn, promote entrepreneurship widely. With this objective, EDII launched the first-of-its-kind, ‘Fellowship Programme in Management’ with emphasis on entrepreneurship in year 2014. The Institute is announcing the seventh batch, i.e. 2020-24, of the said doctoral level programme.
The programme is designed to address the gaps in the availability of trained educators, researchers, business consultants and resource persons in entrepreneurship at higher learning institutions/professional organisations/ government departments/industry in India. The cadre of academicians thus created will raise the standards of education and research, thereby ensuring wider acceptance of entrepreneurship as a career option in thesociety.
