Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Ahmedabad Indian Institute of Management 2007Description: 7 p.Subject(s): Agricultural Education | Entrepreneurship | Environmental sustainabilityDDC classification: WP 2007-07-04 (2049) Summary: Having been a product of Agricultural University, I understand and empathize with the leaders of the universities about the problems they face. However, let us accept that the standards that were set decades ago can indeed be surpassed if only we would challenge the students to bring out the best in them. My one line summary of the problem is that we are not challenging the future leaders of our discipline strongly enough. Is it because rise in their expectations will create a stress on us or is it that we have learnt to be helpless? Isn't it ironic that in almost no agricultural university, a graduate or postgraduate is not required to take any course in entrepreneurship? The universities seem to be locked up in the paradigm of seventies.
