Punjab Technical University (PTU) is planning to establish 50 incubation centres in its affiliated B-schools in Punjab, to promote skill development and entrepreneurship among students.

These centres are intended to develop overall personality of students and to provide them with appropriate industry exposure.

“We want our students to become job providers rather than jobseekers on graduating from the business school,” PTU Vice Chancellor Rajneesh Arora said.

These incubation centers will not only help the students to think out of the box but will also help young entrepreneurs to arrange money for starting new projects. They intend to provide much needed industry exposure to the management students and thus, help enhance their job prospects.

The Aryans Business School (ABS), located in Nepra village of Punjab, about 25 km from Chandigarh, will be the first business school in Punjab to start an incubation centre in the next few days.

“We welcome this initiative of PTU and we are ready to impart any kind of help in this venture. This was the need of the market and we have made all the arrangements for launching incubation centres to translate student’s ideas into actual business,” said Aryans group Chairman Anshu Kataria.
