The Impact of Economic Forces: Shaping Higher Education in the Post-Soviet Space
The main focuse of the study “The Impact of Economic Forces: Shaping Higher Education in the Post-Soviet Space” is the interconnectedness of the economic features and characteristics of higher education systems in the former Soviet republics. Interpreting the range of the behavior models in different counties with the same background, it seems to be possible to make a conjecture about interdependence between changes within higher education systems and certain environmental transformations. As the study examines the economical features of post-Soviet countries and their interdependence with the charachteristics of higher education systems, the analysis is based on the data on the 15 countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Russia), most of all basic indicators of economic development and higher education systems from the WorldBank data sources. The statistical methods is implemented.
