Europe India Leadership programme, an initiative of Europe India Centre for Business and Industry and delivered by Sivaleen Inc, is a 6 day on ground programme in UK which aims to bring together senior staff and lecturers from Indian institutions and support the development and embedding of new entrepreneurial pedagogy across a set of curriculum.  Universities of all shapes and sizes increasingly need to innovate, to engage locally, regionally, nationally and internationally and to develop their capacity to respond to the current environment.  The participants of this programme will be certified by Europe India Centre for Business and Industry towards the end of the programme.



This Programme is designed for senior university education staff wishing to innovate and make change happen. It explores both the concept of entrepreneurship within a university and its application, embracing governance systems, organisation design and the development of personal skills for entrepreneurial leadership.


The impact of developing an institution’s academic staff entrepreneurial capacity extends beyond graduate student start-up and will deliver:


●          A significant impact on the culture and practice across the entire institution

●          The development of entrepreneurial thinking within staff and students alike

●          Embedded enterprise within teaching for the benefit of all learners

●          A significant impact upon student ambition and aspiration, especially at the point of graduation

●          A clear strategy and builds the infrastructure to supports its development.


From our participating organisations extensive experience working to support the development of entrepreneurial graduates, it is clear that in order to build entrepreneurial capacity in students, it is also necessary to build the entrepreneurial capacity of the institution – and that requires a clear staff development strategy.


The programme is based upon a strong research, development and practice foundation and is comprised of four modules. It is highly interactive, building from the experience of participants, faculty and practitioners and exploring a range of different university contexts. Leading researchers, experts in the field of university education, policy makers and visionaries who are already doing things differently take part. Participants are encouraged to appraise the entrepreneurial capacity of their own organisation, identify areas for potential development and create strategies for change. Peer group learning is emphasised and, in addition, participants will receive support from senior staff who have attended previous programmes.
