With the passage of time our educational system has got heavily slanted towards scoring of marks to somehow pass the examination. While it encourages a few to come up in life, the potential of vast majority of intelligent minds is surpassed. Realising this need in mid-1994 and urged by Lt. Col. Satsangi VSM, Chairman, CSKM Public School and Ajit N. Haksar, Chairman Emeritus, ITC Ltd., Pankaj Saran, President, EMPI conceptualized a blueprint to set up an institution that would nurture giftedness in individuals to achieve excellence.
The concept gained momentum when former Director of BHEL, Sr. Management Consultant Commonwealth (UK) and President IEEMA, Gurnam Saran, then associated as Managing Director in an American Consulting Group, decided to return and stepped in as Founder President of Entrepreneurship and Management Processes International (EMPI Business School). EMPI has a number of distinguished people in its board who are well known leaders in their own respective domains. EMPI Business School Group, New Delhi was established in 1995, by a group of nation builders who have been highly committed and successful professionals and academicians in their own respective domains.

Learning Through Living
EMPI is committed to identify, nurture and enrich giftedness in individuals through continuous innovative pedagogy and distinctly different gurukul like learning environment to bring out creative, entrepreneurial and managerial capabilities keeping in sharp focus the need to promote meritorious, innovative, enterprising and intellectual potential of our youth and collectively showcasing Indian achievements. With the emphasis that management learning takes place primarily outside the classroom unique programmes have been designed and are carried out based on enriching team processes such as sensitivity training, unique psychometric profiling that maps each student for interventions and the Personality Assessment, Enhancement and Up-gradation Programme.
These interventions delivered in the gurukul setting promote ‘Learning through Living’. The gurukul atmosphere in turn promotes team learning under close mentorship of faculty. Further, based on the adage that fitness is a key to handling modern day managerial stresses, a unique executive fitness program aims to bring about balance of the mind and body.
EMPI’s guiding philosophy of ‘Innovating Futures’ is a recognition that the 21st century is being driven by the twin paradigms of ‘Innovation’ and ‘Futurisation’, dynamically reinforcing and building on each other, with manifestations from technology to social change. Not only is the process of creative destructive in all walks, imperative for the way forward but also the knowledge of ‘predicted’ future scenarios is also equally vital.
This DNA constitutes the basis for EMPI’s 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 like setting up India’s first Participative Public Policy Forum called ‘We Think for India, that created the manufacturing policy draft for the government of India using a decentralized process, which was released by the then Prime Minister of India, Shri. Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ji. EMPI’s ‘Mission Innovative India’ which was flagged off by President, Hon’ble Shri APJ Abdul Kalam. Under this first in India initiative organizational innovations from various sectors including the Government, Corporate, Non-Corporate and Network of Organizations were recognized and awarded in one platform. Back in the year 2007, EMPI worked closely with the Knowledge Process Outsourcing industry, NASSCOM and the Department of IT, Government of India to identify their training needs and consequently launch the first programme on Research and Business Analytics in India. EMPI is the first institution that has floated the concept of an innovation city and have addressed so many issues that can impact the society and the country”.
