A glimpse of our success story
It all began in the year 2009 with Prof JR Sharma, accepting an assignment to teach civil services’ senior officers, mostly IRS and IAS officer at the National Institute of Financial Management (NIFM a leading centre for excellence- financial management institute under Ministry of Finance with Union Finance Minister as its Chairman). He aptly realized that there was a compelling need for the institute to re-structure its programs and bring-in faculty which would be capable of imparting knowledge through top international, well-formed case studies, project-based self learning and has a relevant industry experience. It set into a motion an idea to start an initiative that resonates on global best practices in teach-learning. Later on joining City Innovates, a highly credible IT Company as its CIO and Director, he initiated a vertical on HEIs accreditations that later flourished into an agency by its name Higher Education Accreditation and continues to be one of the leading accrediting agencies in India.
‘STEMVOGEL Consultancy (OPC) Private Limited’ incorporated under Company’s Act 2013 was established in HSR Layout, Bangalore to meet a very large accreditation demand of HEIs in the South region of India which currently and decidedly has a cut over the North in yearning for the quality academics. STEM denotes Science, Technology, Engineering, Management and VOGEL denotes the bird that carries the STEM in its flight. With Prof Sharma as its sole Managing Director and Principal Consultant, it envisions to meet the aspirations of HEIs on accreditation, particularly in the South and South-West States of India. Backed by years of consulting the faculty and programs of over 82 universities and colleges in India personally, he is well poised to make deep inroads into meeting the education and skill needs of the HEIs in various fields of STEM and thus contribute to the society at large in establishing deep routes of global best practices in India.
