'MUMBAI' The Centre Of Global Edu'n
Why is 'Mumbai' called as a Centre of Global Education in India. What is so special in Mumbai Education? What makes it unique from other states? What is the demand for IB- International Baccalaureate schools in India? Check below.....

 

A study on education reveals that there had been and still continues to be a huge demand for International Baccalaureate authorized schools in India. Approximately 40% of applications we receive across the Asia Pacific come from India. While not all of these pass through the inflexible authorization process to become IB World Schools, it does demonstrate a high level of demand.

It is worth nothing that Indian National and state Boards and the IB are not mutually exclusive. National and state boards are taught through the IB curriculum frameworks at these levels. Therefore, there is not really a question of shifting boards often.

In-fact, the IB believes that our programmes should inclusive and include the entire school. The exception is at IB Diploma (which is equivalent to Plus 2) where curriculum is more subscribed with external assessments, where students tend to choose between the IB and their Local board as to do both would be too much workload on them.

Classically, Mumbai is the centre of International education in India mainly because of the city's attributes: international, outward focused through trade with the rest of the world and quick to embrace change. The universities in Mumbai recognized the advantages of having progressive policies to IB students quite early.

Mumbai University and colleges such as HR College recognize that IB students contribute to courses and life of the campus through their engagement in learning, their ability to research and ability to study from multiple perspectives. With the exception of the original international Schools such as American School, British school, UWC, Mercedes Benz, there are now many more schools that have offered various choices to their students. Whereas some of them offer only IB Programmes.
