Every child is a born genius. He is gifted with potential in certain areas. He comes with a “right to earn a successful life” and the education system must enable him to do so. The basic purpose of education and training is to empower an individual to lead a successful life and contribute best to himself, family, society, nation and humanity. Therefore education and training are the most effective tools to achieve this outcome.
Since youth are the main asset of any nation, education becomes the most powerful tool for social transformation. India’s demographic structure is changing, while the world grows older, the Indian population is becoming younger and by 2025 about two-third Indians will be in its workforce. A continuously growing older world offers a huge opportunity for talented and competent ones.

Smart technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics, data analytics, prediction, knowledge engineering, virtual reality, blockchain, IoT and automation will be a norm across industries. Therefore, organisations are actively seeking future-ready leaders who are not just responsible and result-oriented but are also innovative, collaborative and have the ability to synergise technological advancements with human touch. Amidst this revolution, institutions worldwide are realising the need for a paradigm shift in higher education.
