Adapting to Global Trends: Why and How Is the Ethiopian Higher Education Changing?


In the decades since the end of the Second World War visible similarities have been emerging between higher education systems of different countries, across varying economic, political and socio cultural contexts. Over these years the Ethiopian higher education has also gone through a series of changes influenced by systems of different countries and global trends in higher education. Using institutional isomorphism as analytical framework, this paper explores how the Ethiopian higher education has been changing in the past two decades. Identifying the main forces of change behind the major policy reforms and examining the modes of influence the paper shows how the Ethiopian higher education adapts to global trends. It also makes the case that being under the influence of numerous interests the Ethiopian higher education shies away from strongly demonstrating distinct features of its own.
