The Great Brain Race: Rise of the Global Education Marketplace

LSE public lecture

In a worldwide educational marketplace, international competition to build the best universities and attract the brightest minds is more intense than ever. In his lecture based around his book, The Great Brain Race, Ben Wildavsky argues that the globalisation of higher education should be welcomed, not feared.

Ben Wildavsky is a senior fellow in research and policy at the Kauffman Foundation. Previously, he was education editor of U.S. News & World Report, economic policy correspondent for the National Journal and higher education reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle.
