Abstract

Higher education is both influenced by and reinforces global trends. At the present time there is a commodification of education in all of the world's national economies, which is associated with an increasing global orientation toward knowledge-based economies. The role given to higher education, as an indispensable ingredient in national economic growth, is not disputed. It is therefore necessary to examine what impact this global trend has upon higher education itself, and to what extent higher education is thus being transformed.
