Abstract

After the introduction of the much-hyped Foreign University Bill by the Government of India, the competition in the private-education sector has become intensely tough. The whole education sector in India, in general, and the private management education sector, in particular, is having every reason now to worry more about its future, in the face of the newer competition, that is going to come, after the likely entry of global players. The quest for becoming a leading educational institute has now become more of a necessity, for all Education-Service-Providers (ESPs). While trying for an honourable existence, some organizations do try for long term sustenance by trying to adapt to the changing needs and also adopting themselves the necessary changes.

Such changes could however either be simply cosmetic or be really cosmic. While the intention could initially be, a quest for becoming a quality, world-class ESP, a myopic strategy could possibly end-up the drive, only in a cosmetic physically attractive change, which might not get desired long term, healthy substance. A few critical questions usually hunt the management of each good institution; such as, what change we need (and why) and at what cost?

The present paper looks at the transition and the paradigm shift that took place in the post-independent India, analyses the critical change agents and other linking factors and suggests key points for strategy formulation for ESPs.
