The launch of an MBA course in Family Business and Entrepreneurship at Delhi Technological University will boost business not just in the city but across the country, Deputy Prime Minister Manish Sisodia said Thursday.
During his visit to DTU, he said that a course such as “Family Business and Entrepreneurship” would enable students to become “job providers, not job seekers” and enable them to both improve their own family business and start a new business Idea.
“My dream for India is that the students who study at our universities become entrepreneurs and create employment opportunities. Our universities have equipped our students so that they can earn high salaries in world-renowned companies.

“But for our country’s progress, it is important that universities equip our students with entrepreneurial skills and help them create jobs. It is my dream that our universities will become a source of entrepreneurs,” he said.
Sisodia added that his goal is to make this course “a global brand of entrepreneurship, modeled on Babson College in the US”.
Sisodia noted that one of the main problems of the pandemic was unemployment and stated that by introducing such programs, the DTU aimed to alleviate the problems of unemployment.
“More than 2.5 lakh students graduate from schools in Delhi looking for jobs, but no one is thinking of becoming a job provider.
“Professional universities from developed countries attract students from all over the world to strengthen their own economies. It should be the prerogative of our universities to enable students to contribute to our country’s economy,” he said.
During his visit, Sisodia also opened the Manthan Hall of the University School of Management and Entrepreneurship on DTU’s East Campus.
