Students get out of classes, study merchants to gain business tips (DNA Ahmedabad)
Enterprising city students, refusing to restrict their learning to within the four walls of a classroom, have reached out to different trading communities to get tips on better entrepreneurship. Jains, Marwaris, Sindhis, Cheliyas, Bohras, Khojas, Parsis, Purohits and Memons are among the communities they have approached.
The youth, first-year students from the Amrut Mody School of Management, studied the city's old markets, Sunday market and flower market. They also studied the different trading communities to exchange theories and best practices with them as part of a course titled 'Entrepreneurship with practice'.
Professor Abrar Ali Saiyed, who designed the course, said, "The idea was to expose students to different aspects of entrepreneurship through experiential learning."
