Education and Training

Economic and demographic changes will dramatically transform the Indian education system over the next decade. By 2020 India will outpace China as the country with the largest tertiary-age population. This change will affect all segments of the market, including primary, secondary, and tertiary and vocational training and education. Digital learning technologies will have a key role to play in this, through access to learning resources through the internet; digital support tools in physical classrooms; e-learning services for interactive distance-learning; and the creation of complete 'virtual' classrooms. Our objective is to provide timely and practical guidance on how this transformation impacts business creation and development in this sector.
