What is Higher Education? How big is the Higher Education Industry?

Higher Education Report Coverage & Overview:

In the Global Higher Education Market Report, higher education plays a pivotal role in achieving professional and financial goals. It is often considered a natural progression in the human life cycle. Furthermore, higher education significantly contributes to individual self-determination and fosters a positive self-image.

In several countries, post-secondary education holds the key to securing employment, particularly in small and medium-sized businesses. This, in turn, leads to an improved quality of life and opens up new growth opportunities in one’s professional career. Notably, there has been a significant increase in the enrollment of students with disabilities in two and four-year post-secondary institutions, thanks to legal provisions and the enactment of legislation aimed at ensuring educational equality for disabled individuals.

For instance, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 in the United States mandates that postsecondary institutions provide disabled students with equal educational opportunities, facilities, and necessary educational support services.

Global Higher Education Market: Growth Dynamics

In the Higher Education Market Report, the increase in higher education enrollments in countries like the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and Germany, along with a surge in educational trips undertaken by undergraduate students to destinations such as France, Sweden, Belgium, and Italy, has had a significant impact on the growth of the higher education market. Additionally, the rise in international student mobility and the availability of favorable government schemes, such as government scholarships for deserving students in countries like India who wish to study abroad, are poised to enhance the global growth of the higher education market in the coming years.

The proliferation of online learning degree programs offered by both regional and foreign educational institutions has facilitated increased student enrollment in these programs, expanding the market’s scope for growth. For instance, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the United States offers courses in developing economies through the online learning platform edX.

Renowned universities worldwide, including institutions such as the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT), Stanford, and Harvard, now provide a wide range of certificate and diploma courses in areas like data science, business analytics, AI, big data, machine learning, deep learning, and marketing analytics, all at affordable costs. Furthermore, select foreign educational institutions offer online MBA degree programs with reasonable tuition fees, further diversifying educational opportunities for students.

Moreover, rise in imparting education through online mode has created new growth avenues for higher education market. In addition to this, outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic resulted in lockdown in various parts of world and led offline educational activities coming to standstill. This has promoted demand for online education, thereby expanding size of higher education industry. Apparently, conventional education system has given way to virtual and blended mode of education, thereby culminating into humongous higher education market expansion in recent years. Citing an instance, in first quarter of 2020, Chinese Ministry of Education offered teaching to more than 250 million students through online mode of learning along with providing them with a facility of learning in flexible hours as well as per their own convenience.  With students able to learn and gain education at their own pace and convenience through online delivery of lectures, the online mode of education is garnering momentum and this is likely to drive higher education market growth.

Unprecedented growth of higher education market over coming years can be attributed to massive student enrollment in online educational courses offered by foreign universities. In addition to this, easy access to high speed internet facility, easy availability of personal computing devices such as laptops & tablets, and launching of high speed 5G network will culminate into steep growth of higher education market. Apparently, rising digital learning trends among young, adult, and elderly population will garner lucrative benefits for higher education market in coming years.
