Technopreneurship Study Mission (TSM) invites enrolment from entrepreneurially inclined students. Those intending to start their own companies will benefit extensively from this course. The course trains students to do SWOT analysis of startup companies and to recommend growth strategies for these companies. Such analysis and recommendations applied to other companies can certainly prepare aspiring entrepreneurs to better execute their own start up dreams. Students will prepare a report based on a topic assigned to them and present their findings in the class. They will be required to link their findings to the mission of the course and a one-week trip, where they will make presentations to companies.
