Inaugural MBA batch of Shiv Nadar University takes first step in entrepreneurship

Shiv Nadar University, build in a sprawling campus in Dadri, near Greater Noida saw some entrepreneurial action on 30-31st July, when its 1st year MBA students went through an experiential 2 - day workshop on idea generation and business plan. Dr Shekhar Chaudhuri, Director, School of Management and Entrepreneurship and ex-Director of IIM Calcutta, in his brief opening address told the students, "Being entrepreneurial is as important as being an entrepreneur."

This was followed by 2 days of journey where, I (Amit Grover, Founder of Nurture Talent), took the students through lots of exercises, games, presentations, so they could arrive at a feasible idea and business plan. Finally, all the students promised that they will use their 2 years of MBA studies to shape and execute their ideas to be able to launch them as soon as possible - some before and some after they pass out of the university! Prof Pradeep Sharma and Prof Partha Sarthy Roy did final evaluation of the students ideas, which were well appreciated by all.
