The Offshore Model for Universities
Ross, Andrew
Liberal Education, v94 n4 p34-39 Fall 2008
This article discusses the ongoing effort of the World Trade Organization (WTO) to bring higher education services within the purview of the General Agreement on Trade and Services (GATS). One result of the anticipated liberalization of trade in education, the author explains, is the headlong rush of Anglophone universities into the global market for higher education services. Will liberal educational ideals (and the job base built around them) wither away entirely in the entrepreneurial race to compete for a global market share, or will they survive only in one corner of the market--as the elite preserve of those who are able to pay top dollar for such hand-crafted attention? (Contains 3 notes.)
