The Indian education sector has been recognized as a “Sunrise Sector” for investment in the recent past. This recognition stems from the fact that the sector offers a huge untapped market in regulated and non-regulated segments due to increasing literacy and enrolment rates, aspirational value of education and rapidly growing per capita income. The Government has also been proactively playing the role of facilitator and is also the largest service provider in this sector, while the private sector is creating new and innovative market offerings to utilize these opportunities.

Deloitte in India  offers a specialised practice for its education clients. With many years of experience of operating in the Education and Skill Development space, the pool of specialists have developed in-depth knowledge and understanding of the business issues, financial requirements and the tax and regulatory environment through varied engagements.

The Education practice in Deloitte has been set up as an IMO (Integrated Market Offering), in contrast with the other services which are offered in a collective manner.

Deloitte in India actively works with the Government to introduce reforms by providing assistance in drafting higher and technical education policies, state education plans and skill development initiatives. We advise foreign educational institutions and companies to conceptualise and implement India-entry strategy through greenfield projects, acquisitions or tie-ups by providing advice on strategy, partner identification, tax and regulatory, operations, IT, human resource and financial advisory. We serve our Indian clients across the complete strategy lifecycle of entry, management and growth of the educational institutions, and facilitate smooth and profitable exit for promoters, in case required.
