This book examines the Ethiopian higher education sector through an exploration of its various dimensions, challenges and prospects. Albeit one of the largest systems in the continent, the sector has received little research attention in the past. The book bridges this gap by marshalling a variety of current themes and issues with their wider implications for continental and global higher education. The chapters are structured in such a way that general readers, professionals and students of higher education can have a good grasp of the Ethiopian higher education sector as a microcosm of the African higher education ecosystem.
Wondwosen Tamrat, PhD (Higher Education), is Associate Professor at St. Mary’s University in Ethiopia. He has published many articles and books on Ethiopian and African higher education, including The Evolving Quality Assurance System in Ethiopia (2012), The Bloomsbury Handbook of the Internationalization of Higher Education in the Global South (co-editor, 2021) and The Private Provision of Higher Education in Africa (forthcoming).
