This evidence brief summarises the findings from a rigorous review conducted by Oketch, McCowan and Schendel (2014), entitled \"The impact of tertiary education on development\". The review aims to assess the evidence linking tertiary education (TE) to a wide range of economic and human development outcomes in low- and lower-middle-income countries (LLMICs).
The review found that the returns to tertiary education (TE) have been underestimated. TE appears to contribute substantially to both human and economic development in LLMICs.
