Transcript of Southeast Asia Higher Education

Southeast Asia
H.E. History of Universities Curriculum, Research and Student Access University of Santo Tomás (1611) Organizational Structure Finance Policy Making & Accountability and Quality Assurance Globalization and Internationalization During the 1980s, the Southeast Asian governments adopted a Neo-liberalism approach to financing higher education. This approach seeks to increase corporate earnings and economic efficiency by privatizing public institutions, reducing state regulation and taxation, and rolling back the “costly” welfare state (Carl, 1994). Within this region, both the Philippines and Indonesia have the longest running higher education private sectors. The 1997 Asian economic crisis lead to major budget cuts in higher education in this region. Both the IMF and the World Bank would not allocate loans until higher education budgets were cut. This forced many countries in this region to rethink higher education funding strategies. Most public institutions in this region have taken on the entrepreneurial spirit in all operations to keep up with globalization. ________ has 85% of its tertiary enrollment in the private sector –- the highest in the world.
