Speaker at: World Education Summit 2012
Date: 23-24 July, 2012
Venue: Le Meridien, New Delhi
Brief: The emerging trends in higher education should be aligned to the broader trends in the industry, because it is in the industry that the students will look for jobs once they finish their graduation. Just as the industry faces several challenges, our universities also face challenges. These challenges are not aligned to each other, but in an ideal world, they should have been.
The way the students acquire knowledge, the way they learn, the way they communicate in the industry has become digital now. The digital life is further fuelling the process of globalisation. Globalisation means access to global talents, access to newer products and services and so on.
Then there is the issue of infrastructure management. Millions and trillions of dollars are being spent in the emerging economies for creating new infrastructure.
