IIE President Allan Goodman remarks about the rapid, and peculiar, growth of India and how the higher education sector is responding. "Within two decades, more than 140 million people in India will be college age—greater than any other country," writes Goodman. "If the government is to meet its target to enhance gross enrolment ratio in higher education by 30 percent by 2020, some 14 million seats in university will have to be created."
