How Global Universities Are Reshaping the World
Globalization isn’t just changing business; it’s also changing higher education, everywhere.
Given Ben Wildavsky’s focus on higher education, you might assume that only educators would be interested in his book. Don’t make that mistake. Certainly anyone in higher education should read it to understand the forces reshaping that world, and so should secondary teachers and advisers, who need to guide their students. But Wildavsky’s book deserves a wider audience. He convincingly analyzes the changes in higher education as part of globalization and shows how these trends affect international economics. getAbstract recommends this thorough study primarily to educators, but also to those interested in human resources, strategic planning, the industry of education and widespread social trends that are reshaping the world economy.
In this summary, you will learn

- What trends are unfolding in global higher education is taking and
- How those shifting trends will affect you.
