IMD 2010 World Competitiveness Yearbook rankings
For the first time in decades, Singapore (1) and Hong Kong (2) have topped the USA (3) in IMD’s World Competitiveness Yearbook rankings. They are so close, however, that it would be better to define them as the leading “trio”.

Executive education and the over-55s - never too old to learn
Older executives are shunning corporate training. This is a problem both for them and the firms they work for. It is tempting to conclude that older executives are falling victim to age discrimination, as firms focus resources on younger talent. But according to Jorgen Thorsell, Mannaz’s vice-president, this is not the case. Reticence, he says, comes not from the organisations but from the employees themselves.

MALAYSIA: Ministry targets 120,000 foreign students

UK: Universities claim millions for dropouts
UK universities have wrongfully claimed tens of millions of pounds from the taxpayer for students who have dropped out of courses, according to documents the government tried to keep secret, write Jack Grimston and Melanie Newman for The Times. In the papers, officials accuse universities of "artfully misconstruing" data in a "coordinated approach" to ensure they could claim as much as possible from the taxpayer. They found half the universities they checked were taking the extra money.

FRANCE: Super-university aims to be in global top 10
In farm fields south of Paris, billions of euros are being ploughed into a new modern university campus designed to rival Harvard, MIT and Cambridge as one of the world's best, reports AFP. The Paris-Saclay super-campus is France's answer to years of decline in higher education, with the result that the nation's best university only ranks 40th in the world.

INDIA: Top universities have 34% teaching vacancies
There is a stark difference between the hype around higher education and the real picture, reports The Times of India. The top universities in India have 34% vacancies in teaching jobs.

Nitin Nohria has been unveiled as Harvard Business School▓s new dean
Mr Nohria, a professor who specialises in organisational change and leadership, will be HBS’s 10th dean. The appointment caused few raised eyebrows; Harvard has a tradition of elevating its deans from within its own faculty (Mr Nohria has been a professor at the school since 1988) and MBA students on campus had lobbied hard on his behalf. He will assume his new position in July, succeeding Jay Light who announced his retirement last December.

INDIA: Social justice through higher education
India has initiated action to ensure social justice among its citizen through higher education, by increasing student intakes in universities and colleges to 30% by 2020, reports the Assam Tribune.

Teaching managers how to teach
One of the growing trends in recent years has been for business schools to retrain academics from non-business disciplines to teaching in business school. Now corporate and financial practitioners are also being trained to take their place in the classroom.

INDIA: For-profit universities not welcome
India plans to shut its doors to international public and private universities that operate for profit, believing that the move will keep the education sector free of commercialisation, writes Hemali Chhapia for The Times of India. So the University of Phoenix of the US, or the expanding Monash University of Australia, or Britain's first private company-university BPP College of Professional Studies, would not be permitted to set foot in the country.

JAPAN: more Japanese students staying home
Takuya Otani would love an MBA from a top US business school, but he won't apply. When he graduates from college in Tokyo next year, he'll pass on an American degree and attend graduate school in Japan, writes Blaine Harden for The Washington Post. "I am a grass-eater," Otani said wistfully, using an in-vogue expression for a person who avoids stress, controls risk and grazes contentedly in home pastures. Once a voracious consumer of American higher education, Japan is becoming a nation of grass-eaters.
