Indian Franchise Association (IFA) has launched an interactive Franchise Management Program at the Mudra Institute of Communications, Ahmedabad (MICA).

To be implemented in a module format, the program will introduce aspiring entrepreneurs at MICA to the intricacies of franchising and establish the strategic approach by posing various case studies. “An entrepreneurial spirit is critical for franchising. Many entrepreneurs take up franchises but they are not hugely successful because of the lack of entrepreneurship in the franchisee. In order to address this and many other aspects of franchising for entreprneneurs, we decided to launch this program for the students of MICA’s entrepreneurship development centre,” said Gautam Raj Jain, chairman, entrepreneur program, MICA.
