Investing Big through Increased Participation of Foreign Business Schools in Executive Education Market in India


Fundamental industry transformation is driven by online technology, particularly by MOOCs (massively open online courses) which have absorbed learners on a free or freemium basis. Virtual executive education market has grown at a remarkable growth rate, since it has been driven by e-learning which has shaped the future of education in India. With the rise of global integration, the demand for executive education has enhanced to compete internationally. Tracing the global footsteps requires the seed of innovation, which several institutes have undertaken to deliver their learning programs globally for the executive education.

The Executive Education Market in India has focused mainly upon the middle and senior management executives and has designed courses which could fulfill the needs of this management group. The entry level management and the junior level management executives were not targeted equally by the market. Business schools tend to first experiment with new methods or technologies in the executive-education space because the programs are typically shorter in duration and smaller in cohort size than full-time programs. The changing outlook of the working professionals in the tier 2 and tier 3 cities has also lead to promising growth in the market. There has been a consistent increase in the demand for customized programs rather than open enrollment programs. The major B-schools are tying up with the private institutes, which provide a platform to the students as well as B-schools for executive education in India.
