Today no one is arguing about the meaning and the role of higher education in developing countries. Moreover, rhetoric on higher education emphasizes its role for the development of knowledge based economy and society and in this context, higher education becomes strategically important for the countries like Georgia.
Higher education in Georgia is an object of serious transformation since the adoption of the new law in December 2004. Organisational changes in the sector have rarely been the subject of a systematic evaluation by independent experts, and even less a basis for development of a policy.
The present study aims to determine main trends of development of the higher education in Georgia based on analyzis of activities of selected Georgian universities.
