In a bid to support entrepreneurship, the University of Petroleum and Energy Studies (UPES) has set up a new placement support policy for its students who aspire to start their own businesses ventures.
Under this new support policy, students who have graduated from UPES can avail help from their alma mater. Help will also be offered to students who decide to set up their own business even after two years of completing the course and having worked in the industry.
President and CEO of UPES, Utpal Ghosh said that the policy has been introduced to encourage entrepreneurship amongst students. He further added that the students can work on their business model and at the same time will also be provided the opportunity to return to UPES for placement support.
The university also has an incubation centre that offers guidance to students who want to start their own business. Innovation is also encouraged through the centre and skills are enhanced by providing entrepreneurial insights.
UPES will soon launch three experience zones at different locations within Delhi/NCR. The aim of starting these zones is to help candidates take better and well-informed decisions while choosing academic programmes.
Guidance regarding the same will also be provided to students by experienced counsellors who will assist students on one-to-one basis. Similar experience zones will also be started in Tier 2, Tier 3 cities as students in these regions have limited access to information and require career focused counselling.
