Performance des activités d'éducation et de recherche des systèmes d'enseignement supérieur de l'OCDE


  • Benoît Bayenet
  • Olivier Debande


Most of the studies in the literature on performance in higher education focus on international comparisons of education expenditure, mainly the expenditure per student, and do not take into account the multi-dimensional outcome of higher education activities, i.e. research and education. To go thoroughly into the analysis of higher education systems performance, we develop a complementary approach based on the notion of efficiency ("Data Envelopment Analysis" method). Moreover, we evaluate the internal and external efficiency of education and research activities performed by higher education systems, by taking into consideration the labour market integration of the graduates and the publications weighted by the number of researchers. Taking into account the two-dimensional activity of higher education and introducing qualitative measures of education and research outputs strongly modify the level of efficiency of OECD countries compared with a quantitative one-dimensional assessment of higher education performance. © CIRIEC 1999.
