Globalization of education is a key topic for policy planners and decision makers in many developing countries. It is especially important for developing counties, such as Kazakhstan. Strong and good education is the key for attracting international investors and businesses for opening new product lines and transferring know-how/technology transfers.
The international experts are divided: One group claims that the global education ranking would raise the educational standards and ultimately would contribute to economic growth and prosperity. Others suggest that the global education ranking not necessarily contribute to the improving of international education standards as they look at a very limited number of elements.
