#13 Indian Brain Drain

According to the United Nations, India has the largest diaspora (17.5 million) in the world. There’s a reason the Indian diaspora is the largest in the world. “Non-residential” Indians are becoming “not-returning” Indians, and even the “reverse brain drain” has stopped. 

Over the years, millions of young talented Indians from various disciplines have left their soil in search of better opportunities. Overseas university education has been a favourite among Indian students for a very long time. As of 2018, nearly 753 000 Indian students were studying abroad. It is clear that the brightest minds desire the West’s greener pastures.

We invited Charanleen Kaur who works as  Cyber Security Project Manager at Schibsted for t his podcast episode to share her thoughts on: 

  • Indian universities consistently scoring low in global rankings; the QS World University Rankings 2021 did not feature an Indian institute among the world’s top 100 universities.
  • The world is becoming increasingly borderless for skilled workers. Talented and skilled workers are migrating actively on the international labour markets, both permanently and temporarily. 
  • COVID-19 has changed the way we work forever. As companies all over the globe roll out work-from-home policies. How this will change the prospects for Indians who want to pursue their Scandinavia dream?
  • Expectations when coming to Norway
