The Indus Foundation is pleased to invite you and your institution to participate in the Indo-Global Education Summit 2010 on academic collaborations. The Summit will be held at Marriott Hotel & Convention Center, Hyderabad, India from December 3 to 5, 2010.
As you are aware, Indian educational system has been undergoing a paradigm shift in the recent past. India has the world's second largest post-secondary student population of around 13 million. It is expected that this number will get doubled over the next 12 to 15 years. Further, the Indian economy is transforming into an international powerhouse requiring India to provide the best possible educational opportunities for its citizens. In the face of a growing demand for post secondary education and limited capacities, India is keen to bridge the anticipated gap, by improving the quality of its own higher education with the help of reputable foreign universities, while enhancing capacities.
Indo-Global Education Summit 2010 is a unique event which is being organized in India as a sequel to the highly successful Indo-American Education Summit held in 2009. The Summit 2010 will have sessions on Engineering & IT, Business & Management, Life Sciences & Biomedicine, Natural Sciences, Arts & Humanities, and Social Sciences. There will be interaction among the representatives of Indian institutions and those of foreign universities for academic collaborations. There will also be interaction between representatives of Indian institutions and Indian students. The Summit 2010 is specifically designed for top managements including presidents, chief executives, vice-chancellors, provosts, deans, enrollment officers, placement officers, and their executive-level team members.
