The Foreign Education Providers Bill, once approved by the Union Cabinet, is expected to open up significant investment opportunities by US companies and institutions in the higher education space in India. With the passage of this bill, foreign education providers will be able to set up independent colleges which will be treated as deemed universities, offering independent degrees without having to seek affiliation from an Indian university or tying up with one in partnership. This in turn will raise the standard of higher education available to greater numbers of Indian students.

  • 1. Indian Education Market Opportunities for US Companies The importance of educated, skilled and employable manpower in India has gained significance in recent times given its stage of economic development. The Foreign Education Providers Bill, once approved by the Union Cabinet, is expected to open up significant investment opportunities by US companies and institutions in the higher education space in India. With the passage of this bill, foreign education providers will be able to set up independent colleges which will be treated as deemed universities, offering independent degrees without having to seek affiliation from an Indian university or tying up with one in partnership. This in turn will raise the standard of higher education available to greater numbers of Indian students. This follows The Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act enacted by the parliament in August, 2009 which has come into force from April 1, 2010. Breakdown of Private Education Sector in formal and non-formal Markets (*Source: Grant Thornton’s Report: Education in India: Securing the demographic Dividend, March 2010) Opportunities for US Companies in the Indian Education Market More than half of all Indian students studying overseas choose U.S. universities. The attraction of a U.S. education can be attributed to its variety and flexibility as well as grounding in practical and career-focused training. The number of Indian students enrolling at the bachelor’s level, over 12,500, continues to be substantial. These students seek a foundation in both critical thinking and practical application of learning that is characteristic of American undergraduate education. This presents an opportunity to set up local collaboration and investments especially in higher education, vocational training, and multimedia based education. 501 Fifth Avenue, Suite 302, New York, NY 10017; (646) 807-9290 www.ivgpartners.com
  • 2. Higher Education Market in India India has one of the largest and oldest systems of higher education. There are 324 universities, of which 131 have affiliated universities. In addition, there are private and accredited universities, institutions created by an act of Parliament, independent institutes and over 16,000 colleges. Together they offer a wide range of degree and diploma programs. But despite such large numbers, demand outstrips supply by a wide margin. There are approximately 9.5 million students enrolled in higher education in India. This number is projected to rise to 11 million over the next three years. Competition is fierce for limited seats in competitive engineering and management programs. Reservation policies and a quota system designed to promote education opportunities for underprivileged groups in India, further limits enrollment opportunities for many Indians.

These are the largest segments of the total private education market estimated to be worth over US$40bn. Other meaningful and fast-growing areas include vocational training at US$1.4bn, test preparation at US$1.7bn and preschools at US$1bn. India’s 75,000 private schools account for 7% of total institutions, but enroll 40% of the country’s 219 million students – even as some 142 million children are not in the school system. 501 Fifth Avenue, Suite 302, New York, NY 10017; (646) 807-9290 www.ivgpartners.com
