A Qualitative Analysis on Management Studies for Engineering Students
This study demonstrates that studying management and entrepreneurship curriculum is an important component during engineering. A pre-survey was conducted to understand the preconceived knowledge about management and entrepreneurship among students. Later, after the completion of the course, a post-survey was carried out to observe the improvement in knowledge and the awareness about these concepts. A qualitative method was used in which 150 survey samples were collected and analyzed. A comparative study of pre- and post-surveys was carried out. Findings show that a course on management in the curriculum have given engineering students a lot of insights to their career growth and stimulated to think on the opportunities of becoming entrepreneurs.
