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.

 

Programme

WCRC Leaders-Asia Edition presents Asian Education Excellence Summit 2014
1500 hrs onwards Registration
1600 hrs Session I: Panel Discussion

Policy Reforms: Role of Private Education Providers in Sustainable & Inclusive Growth

Session Brief:

In this session, the panel will deliberate on how private education providers can take advantage of government policies in contributing towards creating a framework for sustainable and inclusive growth. The session would try to seek multiple points of views from education providers at different levels – schools and higher education institutes – representing both private and public education systems.

1645 hrs Session II: Panel Discussion

Academic input v/s industry expectations: Improving collaborative measures

Session Brief:

Placements have become one of the strongest bones of contention between industry and the academia in the recent years. Even during times of fair economic growth, graduates from higher education institutes have found the going tough and have been labelled unemployable by the industry. In this session, the panel will try to address means of improving the academia-industry interface and the road ahead.

1730 hrs Session III: Panel Discussion

Better Education makes better Leaders

Session Brief:

This session will take a close look at leadership development among youths through
quality education, which need not be restricted to the curriculum but should ideally
permeate beyond the four walls of the institute. Varied and thought-provoking points
of views will be welcome from an erudite panel of industry leaders, academicians and socio-political leaders, who would try to reach a general consensus.
