Comparative and International Education Society’s (CIES) Higher Education Special Interest Group (HESIG) published its fall 2014 issue on BRIC countries. I have contributed an article on the reforming Indian higher education. I recommend three solutions to manage the complexity of the system: First, enforce higher standards of transparency and disclosures for private higher education institutions; second, strengthen the vocational and doctoral education pipeline; third, professionalize the sector through stronger institutional responsibility.
