Indian Education Services – A Hot Opportunity

The Indian education system is seeing an impressive growth since independence. From just 0.1 Million in 1947, enrollments in the country have grown to more than 11 Million in 2005-06. The education system in the country saw a revolution with the emergence of a whole new class of education providers, including private institutes, distance education providers, self-financing courses in public institutions and foreign education providers, says our new report “Indian Education Services – A Hot Opportunity.

Despite the fact that enrollment figure has been rising over the years in higher education system, it varies widely across different states in India. These differences are not only linked to variation in government expenditure on higher education, but also to the per capita income, percentage of people below poverty line and the extent of urbanization in different states. Generally, states with higher enrollment in universities and colleges are those with higher ratio of urban population and a lower percentage of population below poverty line.

The Indian education system has its both negatives and positives (like the lack of quality institutions in India and a large student base). So both these factors are working as bait to attract foreign universities. These universities are collaborating with Indian institutes to make a confident foray into the country’s education system and to fill the voids that have been left by the Indian system.

“Indian Education Services – A Hot Opportunity intensively examines the present trends and future prospects of the education services in India. The foci of the report are on the Indian education system, the position of government and private institutions, Indian landscape for foreign universities/institutes, and entry and operation regulations for foreign universities, among other parameters.
