IIT Madras Relaunches MS in Entrepreneurship Course

Indian Institute of Technology Madras relaunches MS in Entrepreneurship course. It had been offered since 1982-83 as an MS (Entrepreneurship) by the Department of Management Studies research.
The revived program will provide guidance in uncovering entrepreneurial opportunities in deep tech sectors and establish startups across the Institute’s ecosystem. Selected students would work with faculty on marketable ideas. Accomplished entrepreneurs and others from the start-up ecosystem will supervise and mentor students.
Ashwin Mahalingam, a member of the selection committee, said the program would create tech entrepreneurs who would “produce” the ideas and develop business plans for them. “In this way, we hope to facilitate the transition of technologies from ‘lab to market’, develop entrepreneurs and, consequently, have a greater societal impact,” he said.
Students with an undergraduate or postgraduate degree can apply before November 30 until https://research.iitm.ac.in/. More program details are available at https://sites.google.com/smail.iitm.ac.in/iitmmse/home.
Course work begins in January 2022.
