Linking higher education and economic development: implications for Africa from three successful systems

This book is based on part of a larger study on Universities and Economic Development in Africa, undertaken by the Higher Education Research and Advocacy Network in Africa (HERANA), and  co-ordinated by the Centre for Higher Education Transformation in South Africa. The book draws together evidence on how the education systems of Finland, South Korea and the state of North Carolina in the United States have harnessed higher education in 
their economic development initiatives. Common to the success of the all these systems is, amongst others, the link between economic and educational
 planning; quality public schooling; high tertiary participation rates with institutional differentiation; labour market demand; cooperation and networks;
 and consensus about the importance of higher education for development.
