EduShine started as India’s 1st Academic Search firm in 2013. In the past 2 years, we have grown in to a boutique Strategic Management Consulting firm, focused on Higher Education Sector.
Quality of Education is dependent on the quality of Academicians.
“Making Education, More Valuable”
To be the most trusted independent education consulting firm in India by creating value for our client Institutions and building engaged relationship with the academic community.
on massive expansion drive
This was the time when we realized that we are undisputed leader in higher education leadership search. Most of the times our consultants remained hand full with the search assignments and in some of the instances we had to decline the clients for new assignments.
We understood that we were growing more stable and expanding at rapid pace. To meet with the growing organisational demand, we moved into new larger office and started scouting for the best talent.
started Education Consulting services
By this time, Indian higher education institutions started recognizing EduShine as "India's first and only Academic Search". We became trusted academic leadership search partner for some of the most prestigious Institutions of India. During this time, we realised that EduShine can emerge as a Management Consulting firm focus on Higher Education sector. We took an important decision of not pursuing with the EducationInsight.in and expand our education sector consulting service offerings beyond Academic Search.
coverages by all the leading media houses
Being honest, this was the first period when EduShine actually felt like it can become the most respected consulting firm in Indian education sector. Our Academic Search vertical saw more than 100% growth year on year. Our education consulting vertical received first assignment from foreign institution.
Towards the end of the year, we published our first research report. EduShine got coverage on the front page of The Economic Times, national edition. We were covered by almost all the other national media houses. EduShine's views on education sector and education policy started getting covered by most of the national news papers.
first employees, first office
EduShine was started from the study room of one of the co-founder's home. We simultaneously started 2 ventures, Academic Search firm & EducationInsight.in - news, views and career resources portal for higher education sector. The first employee was Research Associate and a Data Entry operator. After about a year we moved into our FIRST OFFICE.
start as a Pioneer of Academic Search
After conducting research on recruitment / search services market in Indian education sector, we found that education is a largest segment of organised workforce in India, still no recruitment / search firms has presence in this segment. We weren’t even sure that we would be able to survive till the time Indian education prepares itself for executive search firm, still looking at the opportunity of helping Indian institutions to compete at the global level, we started EduShine as "Pioneer of Academic Search in India". What drove us to start EduShine was the understanding that we could provide a service no one else was providing.
