This integration can be utilized as a yardstick by the institutions for staying ahead in students’ market with a distinctive competitive advantage.Social implicationsGrowth and development of HTE will raise a society’s quality of life and thereby increase a country’s socio-economic status.Originality/valueThe study has exhibited SMM as input and output of a service system that is useful for the growth and development of HTE. The measurement tool presented is effective in (re)framing policies on SMM as service input based on desired service output.
