Comparative Analysis of Higher Education Processes in Egypt, Jordan and Tunisia: An Examination of Pedagogy, Accountability and Perceptions of Quality

No 1069, Working Papers from Economic Research Forum

Abstract: In this paper, we present a comparison of several dimensions of higher education processes linked to educational quality across different types of higher education institutions in three MENA countries: Egypt, Jordan and Tunisia. While an important comparison is across public and private institutions, we also distinguish across selective and non-selective institutions and by field of study. To keep the comparison tractable, we restrict our analysis to two broad fields of study, namely information technology and business/commercial studies. The rationale for selecting these fields is that they are the ones where private sector institutions are likely to be more prevalent in all three countries, allowing for meaningful comparisons by sector of ownership. The analysis is based on three similar surveys of higher education graduates from these two fields conducted by ERF with local partners in all three countries over the course of 2012 to 2015.
