26 26 Education to make India a Global Knowledge Hub The rapid growth of the Indian economy has resulted in a severe shortage of skilled and trained manpower. This has been highlighted as a huge challenge across sectors and most levels. It should be noted that Indian’s spend nearly $ 4 billion annually to send their children abroad for higher studies and technical training. This is largely due to the inability of education institution to improvise with changing trends and keep pace with the rate of growth. The real challenge therefore, is to expand capacities in higher education to keep ahead of the curve of rising domestic and global demand. There are three defining factors that will determine the growth path of high education sector in India:

27 27  Entry of foreign University & Privatisation  Internet  Globalisation and WTO Foreign Universities and institutions have been allowed entry into India to establish franchise centers in the country, offering degrees or diplomas. Further, education tourism has emerged as a lucrative and growing business opportunity with India being a key contributor.

34 34 Mumbai : Financial & Commercial Capital of India A melting pot of myriad languages and cultures and containing within itself a fascinating diversity of people, the city of Mumbai is not just the ‘Gateway of India’ but also the country’s ‘Financial cum Commercial hub’. Despite constraints and hardships, Mumbai is the ‘City of Opportunities’ – in areas like IT, ITES, Diamond and Jewelery, Commodity Trading, Tourism, Financial Services etc.

35 35 Mumbai is a city that values time and a city where multi-tasking and optimizing use of time have become ways of life. It is a city where apart from a few serious communal flare-ups, there has been a fairly harmonious co-existence of communities which have diametrically opposite views. Mumbai is a city that never sleeps. It is a city that provides an online statement of the triumph of human spirit over tremendous and overwhelming odds. To give a recent example the city bounced back and resumed normal life immediately after unprecedented floods caused by rains on 26th July, 2005 and bomb blasts in suburban trains caused by terrorists on 11th July, 2006.
