Centre for Global Higher Education

For-profit universities are growing in importance as alternative providers in higher education. 

In this session, Dr Kiev Ariza will discuss his research and analysis into structural changes in the configuration of global higher education systems. Particularly, where states have instrumented neoliberal policies and how this has modified traditional social structures and the meaning of the public good.

The research discussed contributes to an emerging body of scholarly research about for-profit universities and multinational corporations investing in global higher education.

Speaker

  • Dr Kiev Ariza, Lecturer in Emerging Markets at Coventry Business School
