An alternative paradigm is being pursued by Kerala and it has been successfully implemented during the last five years. It is based on a principle of sharing knowledge generated by scholars all over the world. In pursuance of this, a large number of outstanding scholars, including Nobel laureates, have been brought to the State for interaction with teachers and research scholars. Combined with collaborative arrangements with reputed universities and substantial increase in the allocation of funds to universities, higher education in the State is poised for a leap. The perspective is long-term growth from within by invigorating the State's academic resources.

the above is an excerpt from an article in today's hindu. below is the url for the full article.

The Hindu : Opinion / Lead : What price ‘foreign providers'?

sangom or any other familiar with the kerala example, your comments please?

what i think? getting an phd from oxford or mba from harvard or wharton, gives the impression that the said degree has been attained from the location of these universities, the teaching staff of repute from these universities and above all the graduate has interacted with the students of calibre good enough to get into these universities.

nowadays, we can get a insead mba by just hopping on to singapore. very soon, if the new proposed bill passes, we can get harvard or cambridge or insead or oxford degrees without leaving the motherland.

for these universities, why these are doing this, is that they are making money out of a brand. there is no chance of these foreign students (atleast the targetted ones) ever stepping the shores of england or USA or france for studying. probably due to cost. however, minus the air travel, living expense (HUGE) and a fee based on national average (higher than IIM or NLS or IIT but lower than the mother campus) makes this an attractive proposition.

i have a friend who is a dean of a 3rd level US MBA school, who has such an arragement with an indian noname institution. it is a money spinner for the american, a good teaching/holiday experience for its staff, who take turns to teach only certain courses (most of the courses are taught by indians at the indian campus). in this case, the last 6 months are spent in the usa, with the carrot of prospective u.s. work experience dangled as additional incentive.

so, the fear of multi level benefiting, though not all of it intended by the government exists. however i dont know if it is bad for india. only india is so huge, and all models perfectly fit here, due to the diversity, size, demand and above all money power. the super rich will still send their wards all the way to the real mccoys of oxford or harvard. it is the pseudo ones who will be satisfied with a harvard MBA (Pallipatti)?

but will Pallipatti Harvard carry such a mavusu? will it extract the same dowry?

Sir it is possible that these foreign universities actually improve the quality of education in India. For so many decades the quality of education in India has not been upto the mark. There will be a lot of pressure, but I think some of these universities in India , really have a good financial backing. They wll lift up their quality.

This can have a bad effect unless the Government improves the quality of its institutes under its control. Those who are rich will be able to afford the high quality foreign institutions and other private players who copy. A small section may get scholarship. The rest can only afford the regular institutions and all job placements in the country could go in favor of institutions of class. So it will be a bad thing for people from poor families. Unlike in some foreign countries adequate financing and scholarships are not available in India.
