Achiever's Success Story

Envisioning Access, Equity and Excellent Education to deserving students in India, Mr. Harish Menon is a leader in true sense

Mr. Harish Menon is a mission-driven leader in global education management across government and private sectors. He is best-known for expanding access, equity, and excellence in education opportunities for all students and people around the world. His professional tenure spans mission investing, non-profit management, international market development, and management consulting. At the College Board, a 120+ year-old, globally leading, nonprofit education management company that serves around 8 million students each year worldwide through its programs and services including the SAT admission test, PSAT assessments, AP curriculum program, and BigFuture college planning resources, Mr. Menon has played a key role in program management, business development, strategy, partnership relations, finance, and Office of the CEO and President initiatives.

He is passionate about management and education; to deliver programs that better prepare students for college success and opportunity and streamline their transition from secondary to post-secondary education opportunities. He has forged partnerships with state governments, K-12 schools, higher education institutions, and NGOs to deliver such education opportunities to students in a rapidly changing world. He has been integral in delivering the global gold-standard SAT suite of assessments to students in India, regardless of income, social class, and geography, and make it easier for them to access higher education opportunities in India and abroad. In doing so, Indian students have the opportunity to develop, sharpen and demonstrate critical thinking, problem solving, analytical, and communication skills that are recognized important by the National Education Policy 2020.

As education in college is getting expensive, in order to reduce this burden, Mr. Harish forged several partnerships and established a scholarship program that provide students, particularly those from families of low-income backgrounds, the means to escape the chains of unaffordability which kept them away from accessing high-quality higher education in the first place. In partnership with Buddy4Study, India’s largest scholarship platform, SAT discount vouchers of up to 90% discount are offered to Indian students from low-income backgrounds to access the SAT admission test. Additionally, in collaboration with universities in India, Mr. Harish established the merit-cum-means College Board India Scholars Program that covers 100% tuition fees for the highly talented, low-income students for their entire undergraduate education in India. These partnerships have enabled low-income students in India confidently seek out high-quality higher education opportunities and change their lives forever.

Strategic partnerships have the power to transform lives. Harish established a multi-year partnership
with the Telangana Social Welfare Residential Educational Institutions Society (TSWREIS) under the
patronage of the Ministry of Welfare, to prepare students from families of low-income and
marginalized backgrounds across the state of Telangana, for college and navigate the complex
college planning process. In its first year of implementation, several students received admission
with financial aid from universities in US and India (outside Telangana). Students who had never
stepped outside their villages, let alone state, were now bound to international destinations of
higher education.

Prior to joining the College Board, Mr. Menon was a management consultant with Mitchell Madison Group advising some of the world’s largest and Fortune 500 companies in education, publishing, manufacturing, and financial services. He holds a Bachelor of Technology degree in Aerospace Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay (IITB) and a Master’s degree in Information Systems and Management from Carnegie Mellon University in USA.
