We inculcate students the knowledge of selling marketing and producing clothing goods which would eventually kindle them to take up entrepreneurship. When working on Gift articles they are tuned to a creative world which would bring them skill in clarity of thoughts and innovation. When students focus on entrepreneurship, it is one way we can help assure students that the investment in their education is worth it, even in an uncertain economy. To truly learn it, students need opportunities to live the ups and downs of being an entrepreneur, including experiencing success and failure. We pave way for these attainments in students and their reliability on society.
