is how many first-years will be admitted to Chinese universities in 2020. These and other interesting facts are presented in the book University Expansion in a Changing Global Economy. Triumph of the BRICs?, which has been released in Russian by the publishing house of the Higher School of Economics. The English version of the book was published a year ago by Stanford University’s publishing house.

HSE staff members are among the authors of the book: Martin Carnoy, Academic Supervisor and Leading Research Fellow of the International Laboratory for Education Policy Analysis at the HSE Graduate School of Education; Prashant Loyalka, Leading Research Fellow of the International Laboratory for Education Policy Analysis at the HSE Graduate School of Education; Isak Froumin, Academic Supervisor of the Institute of Education; and Maria Dobryakova, Director for online media.

The book examines systems of higher education in the four largest emerging economies – Brazil, India, China, and Russia. Whether or not they become centres of influence to a large extent depends on how successfully they form a high-quality system of higher education.

The presentation of the book will be held on September 16 at 5:30 p.m. during the second half of the seminar ‘Current Research and Developments in Education'.
