Globalisation, Credentialism and Human Capital
Zajda, Joseph
Educational Practice and Theory, v34 n2 p45-60 2012
This article examines the nexus between credentialism and employment in the global economy. It first reviews the notion of credentialism, and the impact of globalisation on the employment sector. Then it discusses the human capital theory and the significance of education and training, as the key to participation in the new global economy. Finally it comments on credentialism, and its link with human capital and screening theories.
