Today, millennials are shaping their careers and that of the nation. Higher educational institutions must facilitate the same by imparting the necessary knowledge and skills”.

“The curriculum orientation has to change from “industry” to “innovation and entrepreneurship. Additionally, we need to create an enabling ecosystem that gives wings to youth’s latent talent, spurs innovation, and nurtures business instincts. Against this backdrop, the BVR Mohan Reddy School of Innovation and Entrepreneurship at IITH aims to nurture and develop world-class innovation and entrepreneurial talent from India,” said Dr Murthy.
