Formatted abstract

This study would look into the relationship of higher education and economic growth and development in Bangladesh and Pakistan. Education systems are being reviewed stating any similarities between the countries and how they relate to each other. Economic growth is represented by GDP per capita against tertiary or higher education. Development aspects through United Nations’ different reports are being reviewed and presented. Empirical analysis is also conducted based on endogenous growth model (Cobb-Douglas function) to find out the probable relationship between growth and higher education. Both countries show similar trends in the analysis and inherit similar education system. Literature is scant regarding how these countries should respond to the changes in highly competitive higher education world. Globalization and internationalization are reviewed and suggested policy responses are listed in the study.
