Abstract

This paper examines and compares education indicators for 7 developed countries in Europe - Germany, Italy, Estonia, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and United Kingdom, and four developing countries - Brazil, India, China and South Africa. The selection of these countries is guided by the INGINEUS project. Tertiary education is the main focus of the report, although primary and secondary education systems are also taken into account. This report focuses on the four developing countries in particular; exploring the growth in human capital and the quality of the human capital output.
