Transformative Journey in Entrepreneurship and Innovation!

Thrilled to share the learners’ collective experience from the recent Entrepreneurship and Innovation certificate course – an initiative under the parallel curriculum.

At the heart of the program, learners delved into the art of problem pinpointing – understanding their size and exploring existing solutions. What set this course apart was a deep dive into what those solutions missed, paving the way for our creative fixes.

The key takeaway? It wasn’t just about problem-solving; it was about ensuring the solutions added real value and strategizing the most effective ways to deliver them.

A highlight was understanding why startups pivot and, more importantly, how to pivot while keeping our core values intact. The course was a journey into practical, hands-on entrepreneurship that equipped us, as learners, with real-world skills.

This was the opportunity to learn, grow, and connect with like-minded individuals.
