How Can India Emerge as an International Education Hub: the NEP and Beyond

The Critical Role of Faculty Development in this Mission

Six months after the National Education Policy (NEP) was drafted and announced by the Narendra Modi government in July 2020, the important dimensions of it are being implemented to ensure its success and comprehensive change in the system. One critical element of it is how a national strategy can be developed to make India an international education hub. 

The STRATEGY for reversing the trend of migration of Indian students going overseas might include components such as:

  1. leveraging technology to reduce costs while increasing the quality of learning options thereby developing the education innovation ecosystem 
  2. a roadmap for premier foreign universities to establish base in the country by removing regulatory hurdles
  3. developing education clusters and special education zones
  4. rebuilding the Indian education brand and reputation and expanding and enabling  the “Study in India” program
  5. bridging the theory and practice gap by engaging the corporate sector in talent development thereby enhancing employability of graduates

But this all-encompassing STRATEGY will not be successful if one critical driver is missing: THE DEVELOPMENT OF WORLD-CLASS FACULTY.

This LEARNING TABLE integrates perspectives from leaders in the education field including:

  • Dr T.C.A. Raghavan, Director General, ICWA
  • Dr Sanjaya Baru, Member Governing Council ICWA
  • Professor Rajendra Srivastava, Dean ISB
  • Mr Dan LeClair, CEO Global Business School Network
  • Professor Pankaj Chandra, Vice Chancellor, Ahmedabad University, Ahmedabad
  • Ms Rama Bijapurkar, Independent Director and Management Consultant, Professor of Management Practice, IIM Ahmedabad
  • Dr Pramath Sinha, Founding Dean ISB and Founder and Chairman, Harappa Education

They will debate, integrate the big picture strategy and articulate a laser-focused plan to develop world class educational institutions, faculty and opportunities for students from India and abroad.

India could thus emerge as an INTERNATIONAL HUB FOR HIGHER EDUCATION.

About ICWA

The Indian Council of World Affairs (ICWA) was established in 1943 by a group of eminent intellectuals led by Sir Tej Bahadur Sapru and Dr. H.N. Kunzru. Its principal objective was to create an Indian perspective on international relations and act as a repository of knowledge and thinking on foreign policy issues. The Council today conducts policy research through an in-house faculty as well as through external experts. It regularly organizes an array of intellectual activities including conferences, seminars, roundtable discussions, lectures and brings out a range of publications. It has a well stocked library, an active website, and publishes the journal ‘India Quarterly’. ICWA has over 50 MoUs with international think tanks and research institutions to promote better understanding on international issues and develop areas of mutual cooperation. The Council also has partnerships with leading research institutions, think tanks and universities in India.
