India Executive Education & Postgraduate Sector Mission

19-23 February 2018, Delhi and Chandigarh 

India's higher education sector is going through a transition. With the population steadily on the rise, the number of students vying for a limited number of university places in India is set to increase exponentially over the next few decades. The Indian government is relaxing some of its tight regulations in the higher education sector to open up the market for transnational education (TNE) partnerships in an attempt to meet demand.

Building on a workshop (Unlocking opportunities for UK business schools in India) that took place in September 2017, the Chartered ABS and British Education are organising a mission to India for UK business schools.

The core purpose of this mission is for UK business schools to further engage and enhance their offerings and services within the Indian Corporate Executive Education and HE sector. The Mission includes a series of masterclass and open day events and will give members of the Chartered ABS the opportunity to:

  • Meet potential clients for in-country executive education (the majority of whom are Fortune 500 companies)
  • Meet potential students for MA & MBA programmes
  • Meet Indian higher education institutions to explore TNE, R&D and partnership opportunities.
  • Find out about how technology is revolutionising the Indian education sector

This mission is designed for senior business school staff responsible for international strategy. It is of particular relevance for:

  • Deans
  • Associate Deans, International
  • Directors of International Development
  • Heads of International Recruitment

We are the voice of the UK’s business and management education sector. We support our members to maintain world-class standards of teaching and research, and help shape policy and create opportunities through dialogue with business and government.

Our members consist of 120 business schools and higher education providers, as well as affiliate stakeholders, corporate members and international partners.


Our ambition is for the British Education Centres to offer an academic platform in India to British education and training providers and academic visitors and researchers, giving them a familiar base from which to operate and engage with the Indian population and corporate world.

The British Education Centre will give British education and training providers the assurance that they will have home territory - designed and equipped to the highest standards - to deliver their courses, to pursue research, to hold events and to raise their profile with a view to attracting more students to work with them, both in India and in the UK.

The price per person is £5,000 & VAT.

This includes stay at 5-star Taj Group hotels for 7 nights, internal transfers, meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) on all days as well as attendance at all the events and visits outlined on the itinerary.
