As the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region becomes increasingly intertwined in the global economy, investment continues to be made in the educational sector. Multidimensional approaches to higher education have greatly influenced the state of business and government in the region. Handbook of Research on Higher Education in the MENA Region: Policy and Practice examines the need for a paradigm shift in the area of post-secondary education and innovation in the emerging, yet relatively understudied, MENA region. This book is a comprehensive reference work for researchers, students, educators, and professionals who are interested in exploring how global higher education is influencing the prosperity and progress of the MENA region.
