In ancient India, Business and gurukul both were available only to the elite class. Gurukul was an education system where students (shishya) lives with the teachers (Guru) at the same place and get to learn all the subjects and life skills required to live a good life. Gradually we modernized, and a vast gap arose between teachers and students, not only in locations but in every sense. Gurukul helped students to build skillsets in many different areas and not merely chasing the degrees. Also, Business is a practical subject to learn. Books can teach us many things, not everything.
