Leader Project

Jain University introduces ‘Leader Project,’ in collaboration with Richard Ivey School of Business of the University of Western Ontario. Under this programme, students get to master the actions of a potential entrepreneur and learn all about what it takes to make his/her vision a reality. The process starts from being an entrepreneur, recognising an opportunity and then moving on to cover different elements of a business plan followed by communication and its implementation.

‘Leader Project’ is an exclusive benefit with an official certification from both Jain University and Richard Ivey School of Business for future managers and entrepreneurs, providing a unique networking forum to promote cross-cultural and linguistic exchange supported by lectures and Ivey-based case study exercises.
