Yet another column ...

... on how India can become an international education hub. This column is by Rajat Kathuria, a professor at IMI, the International Management Institute - India.

This is an idea that I have blogged about sometime ago. Clearly, India has the potential to offer high quality education at a fairly reasonable price of about Rs. 200,000 per year. Granted, this price will be high compared to what an IIT student pays, but it is still quite attractive for the large army of students from rich families in India, as well as students from abroad. This education can be delivered only by the private sector, because government institutions will always be under pressure to keep their tuition too low.
