By taking EDC course, I have learnt that hardwork will always outweigh talent.
Education is the best investment we can make and never make decisions based solely on financial gain. The EDC sessions have helped me to learnt so many business ideas and explore my creativity. By this sessions, I was able to meet the successful entrepreneurs of Tuensang. After, hearing their success stories, it really motivated me to become independent and bring positive impact to our society.

Thank you.

BA 4TH Semester

According to me, EDC is one of the best additional-curricular activities apart from education. Where I got to learn about business, startups & enterprise.
Taking up EDC, I have no regret because it enables me to learn many good things about business and it also built up my self-confidence. I also got an opportunity to meet one of the well-known businessmen from Tuensang District Sir. Chingmak and also got a chance to visit Berlin Bakery factory where we had a wonderful time with Mrs.Dorethy. Through EDC, I got a chance to participate and reach out people and completed SWOT analysis project that was given by our experts.

EDC program was an amazing kick-off for me and I got an amazing experience. The knowledge of how big business begins from small and how they put effort, creativeness, and hard work to become successful entrepreneur. Through EDC, I could be able to explore and get to know about business strategies (SWOT) which was indeed a great learning session for me. Field visit to Benlin Biscuit production area helped me to learn and observe the process, operation, business tactics and how to build strong relationships with the customers. I’m so excited for remaining session and look forward to learn more.
