Education system should highlight entrepreneurship

Narendra Kumar Baldota, Chairman and Managing Director of Hosapete-based MSPL, was of the opinion that the present education system should highlight the importance of entrepreneurship to prepare students to get oriented towards setting up of enterprises that will provide them creativity, freedom and ability to generate wealth.


Delivering his address at the fourth convocation of the Vijayanagar Sri Krishnadevaraya University here on Wednesday, Mr. Baldota, a leading industrialist and iron ore exporter said, Diversity of skills, ability to handle difficult situations and sheer perseverance in the work makes an entrepreneur. If this is made part of the curriculum, it would help students.


Referring to sustainable development, Mr. Baldota expressed serious concern that the key role of education in realising sustainable development was often ignored, downplayed and underestimated, or viewed in isolation from the other instruments of change.


Education is rarely regarded as a major factor in making the world more sustainable, he said.


Education can bring about a lasting sustainable change because it is owned by the learner and reaches the hearts and minds, he added.


The last ten years has seen a global effort to advance education for sustainable development. A broad movement, concerned with identifying and advancing the kinds of education, teaching and learning, is required if we are concerned about ensuring social, economic and ecological viability and well-being, he said.


Giving a piece of advice to students, he said that getting educated was important and using the knowledge acquired in their professional career was also vital.
