While the discussion continues on whether entrepreneurship can be taught or not, a lot of educational institutions in India today, are offering various kinds of programme/ courses to support entrepreneurial learnings. Undoubtedly this also stems from the fact that today’s youth are opting to be entrepreneurs and in the process making it one of the sought after careers.
