The BS Entrepreneurship Program is designed to take the students through various stages of entrepreneurial and intrapreneurial process whose end product would be a functioning enterprise. The program is designed to develop thought leaders with entrepreneurial spirit that can lead to the creation of new ventures within and outside existing enterprises. After completing the program, students would have designed, launched and managed their entrepreneurial ventures through the stages of ideation, networking, experimentation, execution, breakeven, growth, and investment. Students would have explored each of these stages through multiple courses using the project based learning approach. Graduates of this program will be job creators and not job-seekers, they would have the experience of coming out of the comfort zone, and to practice creativity, innovation and design with real projects, real entrepreneurs, and in real-life environments.

Distinctive Feature of the Program:

Experiential Learning: Learning by doing via PBL; Project based learning and Problem Based Learning. Eight thematic projects on real life entrepreneurial process. Projects are exploratory and descriptive during the earlier part of the program and prescriptive and implementation oriented during the later semesters.

Course Design: Courses designed around PBL sub-projects with deliverables requiring application, analysis/evaluation and creation levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy to complete entrepreneurial process.

Pedagogy: Faculty members are project supervisors, facilitators, mentors rather than lecturers.

Field Work: The program consists of extensive research based field work, visits, surveys and experiential projects.

Design of the Program: It requires completion of 144 credit hours of course work in a total of 8 semesters or 4 years. Student’s graduation with CGPA of 2.5 automatically qualifies for MBA program offered by CBM.

The program is based on a step wise transition of thematic semesters containing courses and projects that facilitate the entire entrepreneurial process. Each semester reflects a stepping milestone having embedded courses from various business domains that revolve around an underlying project.
