Perspective: Higher education is key to economic development (but it's not as simple as you think)

Authors of a recent research study argue that we need to look at geography, skills and local companies to accelerate development. Higher education is key to economic development, but the way the two relate is complex, say the researchers.

“Of course investing in education leads to improved incomes, but that’s just too simple a model to account for real development in the real world,” said Dr. Simon McGrath, Professor of International Education and Development at the University of Nottingham and one of the authors of the study, which is published in the International Journal of Educational Development.
