Higher education in India faces many challenges. In order to provide for the requirements of socio-economic growth and international exposure, it is vital that the education provided by universities, business schools, and engineering colleges is brought up to international standards. There must be a thorough overhaul of educational methodology, away from outdated rote-learning and fact-cramming methods to contemporary learner-centric approaches that foster the growth of knowledge rather than information. Higher education must also develop more relevance to subsequent professional life in an increasingly international environment. Since the so-called economic revolution of the early 1990s, every facet of commerce and industry in India has been progressively exposed to the rigors of international standards and competition. Companies and professional organizations are partnered with or compete with their counterparts in the most advanced countries. Higher education must equip graduating students with the knowledge, competence, and global awareness to succeed in this environment.
