EDI, Ahmedabad

The Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India (EDI), an autonomous and not-for-profit institute, set up in 1983, is sponsored by the IDBI Bank Ltd., IFCI Ltd., ICICI Bank Ltd. and State Bank of India (SBI). The government of Gujarat pledged twenty-three acres of land on which stands the EDI campus.

EDI has helped set up twelve state-level exclusive entrepreneurship development centres and institutes. Entrepreneurship has been taken to schools, colleges, science and technology institutions and management schools in the water performance sector by including entrepreneurship in their curricula. The University Grants Commission appointed the EDI as an expert agency to develop a curriculum on Entrepreneurship.

In the international arena, the development of entrepreneurship by sharing resources and organising training programmes, have helped the EDI earn support from the World Bank, Commonwealth Secretariat, UNIDO, ILO, FNSt, British Council, Ford Foundation, European Union and other agencies.

The institute has carried out the task assigned by the Ministry of External Affairs (India), to set up Entrepreneurship Development Centres in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar and Vietnam. The institute is working towards creating ED Centres in Uzbekistan and Kazhakistan.[citation needed]


Post Graduate Diploma in Management - Development Studies (PGDM-DS) [1] Post Graduate Diploma in Management – Development Studies is designed as a broad and multi-disciplinary focused programme to equip students with knowledge, analytical and conceptual skills of social and economic development.

Post Graduate Diploma in Management - Business Entrepreneurship (PGDM-BE) The PGDM–BE two-year, full-time, residential programme at the EDI, has been designed for entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial managers.

Post Graduate Diploma in Management - Development Studies[edit]

The institute has launched a new course - Post Graduate Diploma in Management - Development Studies in market, which makes sure youth is equipped with instruments to bring about 'change' in society. Of the many fundamentals and theories, the Development Studies course imbibes Mahatma Gandhi’s principle – Be the change you want to see in the world. Development Studies (DS) may be considered an MBA equivalent course that creates social entrepreneurs. Social entrepreneurship is a gutsy, enterprising and challenging concept. [2]

The entrepreneurship process at EDI[edit]

Students are taught to identify opportunities and check on their feasibility. Through mentoring and guidance the students prepare a business plan. They are given a platform to pitch their ideas to banks and investors, so that they can launch their own venture.
