FAQs for Franchise
1. Why is Test Preparation and Admissions Counseling a viable and exciting business?
Last year 2,40,000* students left India for education in overseas universities for both, the graduate and post graduate programs, however, less than half of these students successfully make it on their own. *Source: QS
There are six main reasons for this:
(a) Students do not have access to adequate and proper information under one roof
(b) Are under prepared to appear for the various tests necessary to get admissions in a good university and the right program
(c) Lack of awareness of Universities across the world which provide education in their chosen domain
(d) Inadequate knowledge of the admissions process
(e) Ill equipped to build a resume and fill the various forms which finally determine the success for admission.
(f) Lack of awareness of various financing options available
Due to lack of availability of quality national level organizations with good reach, students have been found to pay high fees to small time operators who provide test preparation programs and admission services without the right level of knowledge, training material, methodology or properly trained faculty.
This underlines the tremendous market potential and demand for Test Preparation and Admission Counseling Services. When quality Test Preparation and Admission Counseling is offered, it is only a question of time before reference (word-of-mouth) ensures that students would prefer the services offered by such an institute rather than any other. Moreover the number of students desiring such services being so large and quality institutes being so scarce, the demand will keep on increasing.
The key to sound Test Preparation and Admission Counseling, as we have discovered at Manya Group, is Quality. This means up-to-date relevant course material and methodologies and excellent tie-ups with some of the key Universities across the world. Our relentless focus on customer service is the secret of our success.
