Abstract: If countries want to be competitive in the world economy, higher education is becoming increasingly important. There are a wide variety of ways to organise systems of higher education, but The Economist (April, 2015) divides these into two general categories: the US system and the European system. The Economist sees the US system spreading to other countries. In this paper, we provide a description of the US system of higher education. The US system has important strengths and weaknesses. Because the US system is so dependent on competitive pressures, it is not appropriate for small countries unless the country opens its higher education system to global competition.
