SPJIMR, one of India’s premier B-schools, has launched a new programme to support young student entrepreneurs looking to make their mark in India’s booming startup ecosystem. The Graduate Certificate Programme in Entrepreneurship (GCPE) is a part of the Centre for Family Business & Entrepreneurship (CFBE), one of SPJIMR’s four Centres of Practice.
About GCPE The GCPE programme is designed for undergraduates and fresh graduates with a business mindset who are looking to strengthen their profile, fast-track their ‘big idea‘, and unleash their entrepreneurial skills. It offers networking and profile-building opportunities to help participants develop their entrepreneurial ideas.
The programme is open to undergraduates or fresh graduates from any stream who have an entrepreneurial streak and are comfortable with English. It is a hybrid programme conducted over two months on select Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays to ensure that it doesn’t clash with the participants’ academic schedules.
