What role has higher education played in the advancement of the human race?

The advent of mass schooling played a pivotal role in societies of the later nineteenth century, transforming rural peasants into national citizens. The late-twentieth-century global expansion of higher education ushered in new transformations, propelling societal rationalization and organizing, and knitting the world into a more integrated society and economy. (Schofer, E., Ramirez, F.O. and Meyer, J.W., 2021).

Higher education has expanded enormously during the past century in every part of the world (Douglass, King, and Feller 2009; Schofer and Meyer 2005). To focus on more benefits to society, I believe the following is also essential to consider:

  • Higher education sustains the modern professions and contributes to the rationalization of society and the state.
  • The supranational and universalistic orientation of higher education provides elites with shared global cultural frames and identities, facilitating globalization.
  • Consequently, tertiary education provides a foundation for major global movements and sociopolitical change around diverse issues, such as human rights and environmental protection.
  • Higher education contributes to the reorganization of the economy, creating new monetarized activities and facilitating the reconceptualization of activities distant from material production as economic.

Hence, higher education has become a core institution in society and a basis for global interaction. All over the world, having a university degree has become the standard for accessing prestigious and high paying jobs.

At ATMS and S.B.S., we realize the effects discussed in the article. Hence, we are aware that we have a duty towards society to ensure as many upstanding members as possible. It is our mission to help further the advancement of society and the human race as a whole. At the same time, we are ensuring that our students have quality time in doing so. Student satisfaction is a top priority, and we constantly update all practices to be in line with the best.

All our graduates have experienced better employment, an increase in salary and more. Our M.B.A. is ranked in the top 50 In Europe, and students in the Middle East can now access that world-class education. If you look at linked in, our graduates have all been able to access senior executive positions. We constantly update the curriculum and teaching methods to be the best in the industry.

Hence, we believe we provide the best BBA., MBA. and DBA. in the Middle East.
