Mass Higher Education Development in East Asia

Jung Cheol Shin, Gerard A. Postiglione, Futao Huang, Mass Higher Education Development in East Asia, Knowledge Studies in Higher Education series, Springer, 2015. ISBN 978-3-319-12672-2. Pages: 371.

This book discusses mass higher education development in East Asian countries by means of three main issues: the strategy for higher education development; the way professors and students in the region are experiencing the rapid developments; and the challenges imposed by mass higher education. These challenges include the quality of education as well as structural changes in the rapidly developing systems, funding sources for supporting mass higher education, and job markets for college graduates.
