The Natural Next Step
Since 2015, ApplyBoard has assisted more than 200,000 students with their educational journey. To help make study abroad dreams come true, we partner with over 7,500 recruitment partners across the globe, as well as more than 1,500 educational institutions in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia.
“In just six years, ApplyBoard has become the global leader in international student recruitment and we’re thrilled to make new strides through this expansion in India,” explained Martin Basiri, Co-Founder and CEO of ApplyBoard. “In order to scale and help the millions of students seeking to further their education, we need to expand and grow our team. Considering we have more than 400 team members in India and the country is home to one of the largest student populations aspiring to study abroad, opening our new Gurugram office was the natural next step.”
Further Building the Indian Education Sector
The new Gurugram office will help ApplyBoard continue to break down barriers to international education for students in India.
Despite the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, ApplyBoard experienced pent-up demand from international students across the world and we continue to grow our global presence to help meet the market demand.
The investment in India is a testament to the strength of the India team and future growth of the entire region. ApplyBoard’s expansion in India also comes on the heels of India’s National Education Policy. Approved in July 2020, the National Education Policy outlines the transformative vision of India’s new education system.
“The grand opening of ApplyBoard’s Gurugram office is an important milestone that will help further build the Indian education sector,” said the Right Honourable Jo Johnson, ApplyBoard Advisory Board Chairman. “ApplyBoard is building a movement—an education revolution. It’s building a world where anyone anywhere can have access to the best education regardless of where they were born. In India, ApplyBoard is already serving thousands of students and thousands of Indian recruitment partners with over 1,500 schools in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia, and this new office expansion will help more Indian students during their education journey.”
Thank you to everyone who helped make this new office possible in record time. The ApplyBoard India team continues to execute its return to office strategy in a safe and phased manner with policies in place following the latest COVID-19 health and wellness guidance.
