About The Event
Asia is not just the largest continent in terms of size and population but also the largest supplier of students across every level – from kindergarten to higher education. Alongside the government institutions, private education providers across Asia have created a commendable impact on the distinctly diverse Asian education landscape. Groups such as Gems Education, Dubai and Raffles Education Corp, Singapore in the K-12 space; Manipal University, India, ISB-Hyderabad, Gulf Medical University, UAE, and Limkokwing University of Creative Technologies, Malaysia, in the higher education space, have kept the Asian flag fluttering high in the global education market, stamping their leadership with authority.
WCRC Leaders – Asia Edition magazine wishes to celebrate the achievement of the top private education institutions from Asia in its inaugural Asian Education Excellence Summit 2014. The summit will be held in New Delhi on January 9, 2014 at the Sheraton New Delhi (Saket District Centre). Speakers and participants will come from across South East Asia, South Asia and the GCC regions.
The summit will be a great takeaway for educators, education consultants, students, policy makers and other people associated with this vast private education market. Dedicated panel discussion sessions have been planned out to cover key aspects related to education system, process and policies. The summit will also open up great networking opportunities with founder-chairpersons, directors, deans and principals of different education institutions from across Asia.
The summit has evolved from the forthcoming special feature of the January 2014 issue of WCRC Leaders – Asia Edition magazine – “Asia’s 100 Best & Fastest Growing Private Education Institutions.” The magazine will be available on stands in the first week of January 2014.
