The new currency of the twenty-first century is knowledge. There is little doubt that education is undergoing a paradigm shift, with a stronger emphasis on skills and employability. On the one hand, attempts are being made to improve the gross enrolment rate, while on the other hand, there is a growing and legitimate concern that graduates would be unemployed. There is a growing evidence that our graduates need to improve their skills in order to be more employable. This would be accomplished through the use of a well-designed curriculum. The present research attempts to envisage various educational models/ theories of curriculum designing to make education relevant. Even in nonprofessional undergraduate degree programmes offered by higher education institutions, an outcome-based education framework must be examined with explicit learning goals and ways or processes for measuring these learning outcomes. The study concludes that many more curriculum frameworks in the Indian context need to be deliberated, to adopt “Best fit Model” for institutions of higher education.
