Jamshedpur: XLRI – Xavier School of Management, one of India’s premier B-Schools, inaugurated the 7th batch of its Post Graduate Programme for Certificate in Entrepreneurship Management (PGP-CEM) at XLRI’s Entrepreneurship Development Centre (EDC) in XITE campus, Gamharia on September 1. The new batch has 66 students, who are shortlisted on the basis of a rigorous selection process. While half of the students are from Jharkhand, the rest are from the rest of the country.

The Post Graduate Programme for Certificate in Entrepreneurship Management (PGP-CEM) is a full time 6-month program in the domain of entrepreneurship management designed and developed by Entrepreneurship Development Centre (EDC) of XLRI to provide competency-based education to the candidates with a view to promoting entrepreneurship having equipped them with the essential conceptual and operational skills required for running an entrepreneurial venture successfully.

The inaugural ceremony was graced by Fr. E. Abraham, S.J, Director of XLRI, Dr. A. K. Pani, Dean (Academics) – XLRI, Dr. Vishwa Ballabh, Chairperson, Entrepreneurship Development Centre (EDC) – XLRI and Prof. Prabal K. Sen, Former Chairperson, XLRI – EDC.

Addressing the students, Fr. E. Abraham S.J, Director, XLRI said,  “As a part of XLRI’s mission, we always seek to encourage entrepreneurship and social consciousness. The 6-month Post Graduate Programme for Certificate in Entrepreneurship Management (PGP-CEM) was designed by the Institute’s Entrepreneurship Development Centre (EDC) during the academic session 2009-10 to provide competency-based education to eligible candidates with an avowed intent to promote entrepreneurship in Jharkhand and rest of the country. After successful completion of 6 rounds of the Programme, we are happy to launch the 7th round of the Programme on Entrepreneurship Management.”

“The students have diverse educational backgrounds. More than 65 per cent of the students have work experience of varying duration. Quite a few of them have qualifications in professional disciplines like engineering, law, business management, computer application and chartered accountancy etc. while some are post-graduates in various other fields. We hope the diversity among the students will help the process of peer learning,” Fr. Abraham further added.

Besides the usual inputs on functional areas of business like finance, marketing, human resource management, economics and strategy, the curriculum focuses on specific relevant topics in entrepreneurship in India like family business, techno-entrepreneurship and agribusiness management. The programme also includes a separate subject on Social enterprises which has evolved as a distinct form of entrepreneurial ventures in the country with the objective to impart and enhance entrepreneurial skills and instil an integrative approach to business.   The programme also includes a Project Formulation component under the mentorship of an expert member of the faculty to help the students to draw up a blueprint of action prior to the actual embarking on a business venture.

Dr. Vishwa Ballabh, Chairperson, Entrepreneurship Development Centre (EDC), XLRI commented, “Our objective in launching this programme is to generate a breed of entrepreneurs who are equipped with conceptual and operational skills required for running an entrepreneurial venture successfully. The programme has been designed carefully in order to ensure that it helps meet the gaps identified in similar programmes currently being run elsewhere.”
