Creating millions of graduates every year, Indian higher education sector is one of the most happening fields in the country. Due to its demographic advantage of having a large population of youth, rising income levels and rapid urbanization, there has been a tremendous increase in the number of colleges and courses within the country. With wide range of courses available and opening of several institutions, choosing a right course and college has become a very serious and tedious affair. Surprisingly, while there are several reputed education consulting companies in India sending students abroad and helping to pursue a bright future in overseas education, only a few are available to guide our students for application and admission in Indian Universities. Being South-India’s Largest & India’s Second Largest Education Consulting Company, Indian Educational Services is bridging this gap through their excellent services. Raghav Mantri, Founder & MD, Indian Educational Services says,“The education consulting industry in India was highly unorganized with absence of any professional player. Most of the companies were small in size, serving regional level students/institutes and failed to provide a larger platform for students and institutes. The industry was in the clutches of many unorganized players, who made unrealistic promises to students in order to recruit them for their partner institutes. Indian Educational Services was born as a solution to all these challenges.”

Popularly known as IES, Indian Educational Services started as a small entrepreneurial venture in 2008 with the vision of spreading educational awareness and providing admission guidance to students. Being a new age education consulting company, IES offers the high quality services like
Guidance, End to End Admission Management Services, Map My Talent, Institutional Promotion and Local Guardian Services. “In the extremely unorganized education consulting industry, we’ve strategically positioned ourselves as a premium brand, started operations in multiple cities with many prestigious institutions on board. IES is a student centricfirm, trying to recommend students institutes in line with their career goal, choice of location and budget rather than selling only selected institutes without caring student’s preference. Our firm always strives to provide the best quality through its wide experience, resources and connections and most importantly, reliability,”Raghav explained.

"IES has grown steadily with an annual growth rate of 54 percent. IES aims to be India's largest education consulting company by 2021."

Today, IES has developed as a single-window information hubfor admission in multiple courses and universities and they have also brought in several avant-garde features to streamline the admission procedures. Delineating more on company’s unique services, Raghav adds, “We are pioneer in deploying Scientific Career Counselling Tool called “Brain Matrix Test” to advise students with right course selection. In this tool, we use Finger Print Analysis(DMIT)& Psychometric Test to understand student’s personality,
Scientific Career Counselling – Brain Matrix Test, Admission behaviour, left-right brain bias,multiple intelligences and strengths and likely challenges based on which right career is advised to students. Further, with our experienced counsellors and wide range of institutional tie-ups, we are able to provide best fit colleges to the student and if needed, we help them with application and admission formalities as well.”

Supported by a team of trained, experienced and expert student counsellors, IES assures several unique benefits to its students and parents. Some of them are: processing of student’s admission right from their home town, through an online application, video interview and online
payment facility; support for hostel accommodation, opening bank account and other requirements; and acting as Local Guardian to students from outstation.
