Entrepreneurs are people who identify, develop and exploit new business opportunities. They are a vital ingredient in the process of economic growth of a country. Creating and developing a reservoir of attitudinally appropriate and positive entrepreneurs in a society is very essential for that society. A group of successful entrepreneurs is a competitive advantage for a country in the world economic scenario. The history of economically developed countries very truly supports this view. A career as an entrepreneur can be both challenging and rewarding.

Business planning and business topics among others are important features of this specialization.
