BROCHURE ONE YEAR DIPLOMA IN ENTRPRENEURSHIP & BUSINESS MANAGEMENT (Through Open & Distance Learning Mode)

INTRODUCTION

This course has been specially designed by EDI in response to a countrywide need to expand entrepreneurship development activities. The conventional `class room based entrepreneurship training

programmes cannot train more than 30 potential entrepreneurs at a time. The coverage of beneficiaries, thus, get restricted. Besides,

reaching out to a large number of aspirants, particularly in the remote corners of our country, is a difficult proposition, both in terms of monetary burden as well as time and location constraints. Yet, without doubt, in the wake of opening up of the economy, there is a need for a new breed of entrepreneurs in our country - enterprising persons to set up business and create employment for a large number of people.

To respond to this need of the nation and develop expertise and skills, EDI evolved this Open Learning Programme in the year 1995

OBJECTIVE To develop job creators and thus add value to the national economy. The programme attempts to fulfill this mission by bringing entrepreneurial education to the doorstep of potential

entrepreneurs through the open and distance learning mode. Thus, it provides support to potential entrepreneurs in

conceptualising, starting and managing a business venture

successfully
