Q1. Why IIEMT?

A.
At IIEMT, you get to learn from the experts. In most colleges, people who have never done business write books and those who have never done business teach the subjects. Here entrepreneurs and consultants who are in actual business have prepared the material and they are the ones who teach.

To summarise:

entrepreneurial development.

taught by real life entrepreneurs and consultants.

network.

Q2. But other management institutions also
claim of visiting faculty from the industry…

A.
Let's rephrase what u said-

• they say we are academic but we give you a peek of the industry
• we say we are the industry - we will try to do justice to the academic protocols also.

Further simplifying:

1. A city guy being trained to swim in a swimming pool versus
2. A guy from sea been given basic grooming skills

Who do you think has a better chance of taking on the rough sea?



Q3. How is this content and teaching different?

A.
It is intuitive and flow based. We are trying to transfer our real-life
consulting expertise to the candidates. Here the idea is not to dump a
few books on the candidates. Here the idea is to open their eyes and then
guide them to learn through real world case studies and their
application. It is more about application of concepts.

In short here we teach fishing instead of giving the fish or giving books on fishing - "fishing for dummies"



Q4. But why such a concept - WOMEN entrepreneurial
education?

A.
Global stats and national stats maintain that
98% of businesses do not make it to the first year!!!

Further, we have observed that:
• 95% of those that cross the 1st year mark fail within 3 years
• Those who get across 3 years, have a challenge at the 6 year mark
• Those who cross the 6 year mark, hardly a handful make healthy net profits.
 
So we need institutions like IIEMT to reduce the failure rate and have healthier businesses which in turn will mean more jobs, healthier economy and a successful, super-power India.
 
Further, it has been observed that women have great potential in the business arena provided they work around some key parameters. We try to cover these aspects in  the Women Entrepreneurship Course.


Q5. Won’t that scare away people?

A.
1. If such a truth is going to scare away people, then anyways they are not fit to be entrepreneurs. In that case also percentage of success will increase.

2. If somebody comes prepared though IIEMT then chances of success increases and also percentage of success improves



Q6. But there are MBA colleges who take care of
this?

A.
1. MBA colleges primarily churn out management students. How many MBA students start businesses. In fact we have MBA finance and MBA marketing students coming to us to take guidance on starting their ventures.

2.Current reports in Times and other leading newspapers show that only 21% MBAs are employable, which makes the situation even more tricky.

Our course can be a stand alone or an add-on to a MBA course.

Q15. Why you don't display syllabus on the
website or give information over mail or phone?

A.
We believe somebody who is as serious about his career as starting a business should show enough initiative to come down and go through the screening process. (our screening process starts right from how he approaches the matter)

It is difficult to visualise a leader in those who cannot leave the comforts of their desks for their own development.

Sharukh Khan in his video "KARO" says - "DO" : India as a country has to come out of the arm chair way of doing things.
