Building New Institutions of Excellence in India

Three Case Studies of Innovation

(p.106) 6 Building New Institutions of Excellence in India
The Future of Indian Universities

Pramath Raj Sinha

Oxford University Press

This chapter is based on the stories of the author’s personal experiences in building three different institutions and programmes—the Indian School of Business (ISB), Ashoka University, and the Young India Fellowship (part of Ashoka University). The author argues that instead of driving systemic change through policy advocacy or large-scale capacity building, efforts can also be directed towards the building of new institutions that address an unmet need and an unsolved problem in our country, and that aspire to be the best in the world from the word go.

Keywords:   Case studies, innovation, systemic change, policy, excellence
