First Edition
  • Marmar Mukhopadhyay - Chairman, Educational Technology and Management Academy, Gurgaon, Haryana

August 2016 | 388 pages | SAGE India

A timely intervention as higher education in India begins to pay equal importance to Quality, alongside Access and Equity.

Indian higher education is the third largest in the world. It is undergoing unprecedented expansion and reforms. Yet, no Indian university figures among the World’s Top 100! The problem lies primarily with the quality of higher education. This book serves as a quality management guide for the heads of colleges and universities, focusing on issues, techniques and improvement at the institutional level. In building up a sound framework, it effectively combines generic methods and techniques with specific mechanisms of quality assurance for in-campus activities such as curriculum planning, teaching learning processes, human resource management, infrastructure management and information and communication technologies. The author’s expertise as a management scientist, trainer of heads of higher education institutes and experience of institution building gives the book an extra edge.
