Asia’s higher education sector creates opportunities!

Rising demand for higher education in Asia has led to the growth of private higher education institutes. Governments of ASEAN countries are also embarking on public private partnerships (PPP) to augment resources for the education industry.

With the young population and growing middle-class in South Asia, there has been a growing demand for higher education in the region. People’s willingness to pay more for education has resulted in interesting trends of exporting and importing education institutions, as well as operating branch campuses in different countries. For instance, Erasmus Mundus External Cooperation Window promotes students exchange to achieve mutual enrichment between the European Union (EU) and third world countries.

Besides, education institutions are now functioning similar to business enterprises – they emphasize on current needs and economic utility. The private education sector is now viewed as a thriving industry, as more students are prepared to invest and make themselves more “industry-attractive”.
