To become a department of international repute in the area of entrepreneurial education, training and research.
To nurture entrepreneurial motivation and skills among young graduates and to produce high quality research in the areas of entrepreneurship and management.
Indian Institute of Technology Hyderabad, with its fast-paced growth in quality research and
teaching has emerged as one of the top 10 engineering institutes in India in the QS-2021 World
Rankings. By prioritizing highly futuristic and novel areas like climate change and AI, IITH has the
early movers’ advantage of becoming a trendsetter in various other areas as well. We are also in an
advantageous position of becoming a pedestal of interdisciplinary research and teaching by
synergizing the strengths of our faculty in science, engineering, liberal arts and design. With the
prime focus on entrepreneurship and management, I strongly believe that this department has great
potential to nurture young entrepreneurs who can contribute to the economic and social development
of the country.
Traditionally the effectiveness of higher educational institutions is measured by the level of
employability of the students it graduates. Currently we are moving away from this paradigm of
producing employable students who are ready for the job market to creating entrepreneurs who are not
only can become self-employed but also create employment for others. As a part of an institute which
promotes innovation and interdisciplinary culture, our department has tremendous potential to become
a pioneer in the area of entrepreneurial education and research. We welcome researchers, students
and industry experts to partner with us in various roles like faculty, research scholars and
