Summary This is a study of higher education expansion and its changing quality in the world's four largest developing economies - Brazil, Russia, India, and China - known as the BRIC countries. These four economies are already important players globally, but by mid-century, they are likely to be economic powerhouses. The purpose of this book is to understand the large, rapid transformation of universities in these economies as a way to judge the potential each of these economies has for future development.
