India’s Higher Education sector has witnessed a tremendous growth in the number of Universities, University level Institutions and Colleges since Independence. Our Higher education system still suffers from a number of lacunae ranging from inadequate enrollment to quality issues and insufficient infrastructure. Access to higher education has increased but a lot more needs to be done on excellence front. The true quality of education goes beyond the contours of the course curriculum and the actual teaching - learning processes, that take place inside the class room. Quality Assurance and Accreditation mechanism should acknowledge the transformative role of education in a broader sense. Ranking, Grading and Accreditation would help the Educational Institutions to identify gaps in their delivery mechanism. Ranking provides information about the performance of Higher Educational Institutions within a competitive setup. When it comes to choosing courses and Institutions students suffer from ‘information asymmetry’ which makes it difficult for them to assess the quality and arrive at a decision. The quality assurance mechanism helps the students to choose courses and institutions on the basis of Ranking, Grading and Accreditation.
In the above backdrop the Institute for Academic Excellence (IAE) an Independent academic service provider offers under mentioned support services to all the Higher Educational Institutions.
