Establishing India as an academic oriented, high-quality education destination

Indian students spend billions of dollars every year to study abroad. Furthermore, Indian students are able to create successful career paths for themselves abroad. Experts at the ‘Transformation in Education Through Technology & Skilling Summit and Awards’ discuss the challenges and key transformations that need to take place to attract and retain students and faculty to Indian institutions.
Most foreign students come to India at the undergraduate level, therefore the challenge here is to retain these students, shares Dr Monica Khanna, Director, K J Somaiya Institute of Management. One way, she offers, is for Indian institutes to seek global accreditation that can further validate the quality of education.
There is a need to upgrade knowledge and bridge the gap between academia and industry. The education needs to be reflected in the student’s journey after they complete their courses, speaks Prof S C Sharma, Director, ICFAI Business School (IBS), Gurgaon.
Improving the image of the country and sharing experiences of students on an international level is significant, points out Dr Madhu Chitkara, Pro-Chancellor, Chitkara University. The first thing people check for Indian universities are the rankings, then they want to hear about the experiences of other students. Dr Chitkara speaks about the importance of starting a conversation about campus experience. 

As a nation we can contribute to finding solutions for global challenges through our research, says Shobhit Mathur, Co-founder & Vice Chancellor, Rishihood University. He states that bringing in an Indian perspective to global problems can create unique solutions will go a long way in encouraging higher quality of research and academic opportunities for students and faculty.
