Who We Are

The higher education system plays a very crucial role in the development of a nation in view of its forward linkage with the corporate, as well as, society at large. It is a human capital intensive sector where people and knowledge mean everything. It is an inevitable fact that a robust, innovative and ebullient higher educational system can only help in the transformation of India among the league of developed nations.

IEF is promoted as an advocacy group of leaders concerned with challenges and opportunities in the landscape of higher education in India.
