Nice Work If You Can Get It

This chapter analyzes the impact of globalization on higher education. Higher education has not been immune to the impact of economic globalization. Indeed, its institutions are now on the brink of channeling some of the most dynamic, and therefore destabilizing, tendencies of neoliberal marketization. The rise of modern institutions for training professional elites, and, in particular, the growth of research universities with close ties to industry and government agencies, have transformed higher education into national systems of heavily subsidized services and inputs, each with fiercely protected patterns of funding, credentialism, and employment cultures. Yet in recent years, as universities are increasingly exposed to the rough justice of the market, their institutional life have been driven more by the rate of change than by the observance of custom and fixed, professional expectations.

Keywords:   higher education, economic globalization, neoliberal marketization, research universities, credentialism, employment cultures
