Acceleration of reforms in education is essential for India's progress

How does the economic crisis hit the students

Positives and negatives when parents make the choice for children's higher education



Our education sector has to communicate better and go beyond the labels of courses

Do we work in gates or do we choose lifelong learning

Overseas universities are able to capture a huge market in India

Government's fiscal support to education has largely been misdirected

We need an Education Loan Guarantee Act

Creating Government infrastructure for higher education was relevant at a point in time


Public-Private Partnership can extract efficiencies from the existing education infrastructure

Current framework has in some ways enabled a few unscrupulous players to enter the private education sector

Private sector has successful examples of inclusivity in education

Diversity in campuses

Regulatory ethos in education needs a complete overhaul

Whiff of change that we now see in education

Role of foreign universities in India


A common myth is that people flock back to school in times of recession

Low level of Gross Enrolment Ratio is a matter of deep concern

Growth through Experiential osmosis vs Continuing education with academic rigour

Knowledge for knowledge's sake vs Education for education's sake -- Individual vs societal considerations

League tables of universities are a global phenomenon, but rankings done without due homework can be a problem



How can the impact value of education system be measured

Alumni are a huge asset class but very few institutions do a good job of harnessing them

On fiction woven around campuses

Let us not succumb to the tyranny of 'OR' when thinking about vernacular and English

MBA programme with sectoral relevance -- Example of media and entertainment

Banking, Insurance, Retail, Financial Services, Automotive, Hospitality -- other sectoral MBAs

Industry-Academia interaction accelerated through the high-speed blender called sectoral MBAs
