If you visit an institution of repute, you will be briefed about a visionary creator who had made it happen. Over the years his successors follow suit, the vision becomes a working paradigm of the organisation. This is the history of world renowned educational institutions and their capability to maintain the lead for centuries.
Exponential institutional growth has hit the Indian education system in the last couple of decades, more so in professional education. Funding, detailed project reports, strategic planning and returns on investment have become the critical factors. In the long run only an institution of excellence will prosper.
As a result, employability it at an all-time low. Newer business models mainly on marketing lines, while yielding no results, generally pushes the institution further into the morass of sub-standard education. A creation of good quality institution has a gestation period depending on the leadership and high quality human resources, both faculty and students in an ecosystem which propels knowledge and learning. Other resources fall in line.
Herein, fits the role of institution builders, who can build enduring academic institutions which can stand the test of time. India is in search of this mindset and certainly needs this resource in plenty to turn the tide.
THE COMPETENCY OF INSTITUTION BUILDING ONLY CAN TRANSFORM INDIAN EDUCATION INTO A WORLD CLASS ONE.
