Toward One of the Leading Education-Based Economies? Investigating Aims, Strategies, and Practices of Finland's Education Export Landscape
Schatz, Monika
Journal of Studies in International Education, v19 n4 p327-340 Sep 2015
Since the first publication of the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) results in 2000, the Finnish education system has received much praise both in Finland and abroad. In recent years, Finland started to build up its own education export sector with the aim of becoming a leading actor in the international field of education export. The evolution of Finnish education export is an interesting case study not only because it is a recent phenomenon but also because of Finland's unique legal position toward the commercialization of education. This article introduces the current action steps and stakeholders of this newly emerging sector. It explores aims, strategies, and practices from the perspective of the Finnish government, Finnish education institutions, and the private sector, and sets Finnish education export in a global perspective. It is sensitive toward current challenges in the field to provide valuable insights not only for the international audience but also for Finnish actors.
