India as a country is moving towards its next phase of development. Being one of the world's largest markets, India is also becoming the start-up hub of the future. India added three 'unicorns' per month in 2021 to nearly double the overall number of start-ups valued at over $1 billion to 51 by August end. This number is significant if we consider the global standards. India has emerged as the third-largest start-up ecosystem in the world after the US and China. With Prime Minister Narendra Modi's call for Atmanirbhar Bharat, start-ups in India are pushing their limits. Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan provides a unique opportunity for Indian start-ups to produce innovative and affordable products locally. Keeping this in mind, today's young graduates need to have an experience in the start-up ecosystem. UPES provides a unique opportunity to prospects who dream of starting their own venture through MBA in Start-Up and Entrepreneurship.
Business innovation is the catalyst that can make businesses grow and can help them adapt in the marketplace. Business owners need innovation and creativity to outperform their competition. The innovation process is meant to yield a competitive advantage and help an organisation reach or, better still, exceed -- strategic objectives. Business innovation specialization will provide insights on the implementation of new processes, ideas, services or products by companies with the goal of boosting the bottom line.
