The recent call for educational institutions to be entitled to excellence has created multiple discussions about the objectivity of superior quality education.  What are the key parameters in higher education that distinguish education institutions and how it could be measured are some common topics of conversations doing rounds in the academic circles.

Welingkar Institute of Management Development and Research (WeSchool) in association with CII – Western Region, recently hosted ‘Principal’s Conclave’ 2017 under theme ‘Building Institutions of Excellence’ on its Mumbai campus.

Elaborating on the theme of the conclave, ‘Building Institutions of Excellence’ Mr. K. Nandakumar, Chairman and Managing Director, Chemtrols Industries, said “Reformative measures in education need to be implemented from schools to business schools. Excellence is not a destination; it is a process to train the trainer in order to enlighten the mindset from aptitude to attitude. There is nothing that must stop us from illuminating the rich legacy of education similar to the Nalanda University in the present times.”
