IIT-B introduces deferred placement policy – Indian Express

IIT-B introduces deferred placement policy – Indian Express.

Good to hear that IITB is supportive. To summarize, IITB now has a deferred placement policy, which encourages students willing prefer entrepreneurship to jobs, by setting up a panel with mentors and angel investors to help the startup, and in two years time, if things go wrong, the student will be allowed to take part in campus placements, so this essentially functions as a fall-back safety net, and with the current trend of rising interest in entrepreneurship, I am sure this decision will  be received with much pleasure.

As a side note, This, among many others, is one of the things i wish to see implemented at IITD, and every other institute in India.
