Abstract: The education system in India is often found to be irrelevant when it comes to adding value to its student, primarily due to lack of knowledge and understanding on student population. Tradition analysis tools may not be much helpful in this situation. A new analysis tool, KYS Analysis, is discussed here and its application is demonstrated using a sample survey of the students of a higher education institute. This study will certainly help in developing new strategies to add competitive advantage in any academic institutions in India or any other similar emerging economics around the world. The practical importance of this article is to contribute to the management decision making process and the use of the insights derived from the analysis by the higher education institutions. The article will be useful to a wide range of readers who are struggling to retain competence and stay competitive in the academic world.
Keywords: know your student; KYS; student survey; relevance; higher education; pedagogy; education management; educational reform; quality of education; strategic alignment; evaluation model.
