institutional ethos, wherein Innovation is achieved, not only through academic study and research at its B-School, but also by incubating and spinning off various initiatives and entities that impact the future. These initiatives are emergent from the dynamic inter-play of Technology, Academia, Public Policy and Civil Society, leading to the birth of a series of ‘Firsts’ in the country. EMPI has also developed a reputation for innovative international initiatives and for advocating innovations in national policy and governance, as part of its 'Mission Innovative India' launched by the President of India, H.E. Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam in the year 2005.
