Massification and Diversification as Complementary Strategies for Economic Growth in Developed and Developing Countries
Tyndorf, Darryl; Glass, Chris R.
Journal of International Education and Leadership, v6 n3 Fall 2016
Numerous microeconomic studies demonstrate the significant individual returns to tertiary education; however, little empirical evidence exists regarding the effects of higher education massification and diversification agendas on long-term macroeconomic growth. The researchers used the Uzawa-Lucas endogenous growth model to tertiary education massification and diversification agendas in 176 countries using World Bank, EdStats, and UIS data from, 1995-2014. The long-run propensity of economic growth to tertiary education enrollments was found to be positive and significant. Thus, the empirical findings suggest that massification of tertiary education has a significant effect on long-run economic growth when diversification policies complement massification initiatives.
