Abstract

The public discourse concerning education has identified how the educational system is too slow to react to changes in the external world, which inevitably translates to growing unemployment. The ability to generate growth and improve employment is largely dependent on the quality and adaptiveness of available education, as education is considered the key in innovation ability. In our quest for knowledge and better understanding, we contacted leading experts in academia to discuss how they as the frontrunners of this change perceived the future of education. In this highly conceptual and inspirational paper, we seek to illuminate some of the problems of current higher education and rethink the age-old paradigm of universities.
