India is on a path to become a $5 trillion-dollar economy by 2024. A major piece of the game plan for achieving this goal is to focus on India’s education sector

To empower the growth of the Indian education system, Washington DC-based Nexford University, an online global university, has launched a first-of-its-kind Master of Business Administration (MBA) and a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) online degree program to bridge the skills gap in India and support Narendra Modi government led Education Quality Upgradation and Inclusion Programme (EQUIP) programme which aims to double the Gross Enrolment ratio (GER) in India, from 26% to 52% in a matter of 5 years.

As a recent World Economic Forum (WEF) report indicates; traditional models of education are not equipped to prepare young people for our fast-changing world. Technology and the skills required are moving at a faster pace than experts or companies predicted India’s education system has thus far struggled to keep up with the pace in these changing times.

Fadl Al Tarzi, founder and CEO of Nexford, said:

"Nexford is here to help equip learners all across the globe with the skills they need to become globally competitive."
