Brief: Demand for higher education is increasing not only in India, but in every other developing country. As developing countries are home to a very large young population, there is lot of demand for adult education and professional courses. While demand keeps on growing, the traditional institutions in these countries are failing to keep up with the demand.
The developing nations need to make lot of new investments in the education space in order to bring about an improvement in their educational outcomes. Quality in higher education basically signifies a certain level of excellence. There is a difference in the way we assess quality in the education sector. A business can be assessed on basis of profits that it makes, but in higher education we don’t have such parameters.
