Challenges facing higher education as a service industry in a developing country
Developments in education generally and higher education in particular cannot afford to be static. The technology explosion had ensured that higher education is not immune to forced development as well. Observations seem to indicate that the inertia preventing change is so great that relatively little change has happened despite the proliferation of Education Reform White Papers and international deliberations over a number of decades already. The question now is how long could higher education continue to resist change without losing its place in society? This paper proposes a 'Higher Education Change Cube' to ensure balanced development in higher education and will show how the model is an obvious one for developing countries. In considering the model, this paper also discusses quality assurance in higher education, the disparity between a country's economic composition and what its higher education is offering and how to address these.
