About Higher Education Summit 2015

With higher education a key driver in shaping cultural, social and economic well-being for all countries, in both good and challenging economic times, the requirement for a forward thinking education sector is paramount if it is to meet the demands for qualified professionals and research establishments. Academic institutions; government; business and industry all have a role to play in driving the agenda for students and researchers, improving the economy, and establishing New Zealand's place as a quality provider of higher education. It is these issues which are the foundation for this event.
