The chapter summarizes the findings of the book on the five major questions posed by the state centered model developed in the first chapter. What were the forces driving the BRIC states to expand their higher education systems, and how did they respond to those forces to shape the expansion? How effectively have BRIC states resolved the issue of raising university quality while pursuing other economic/political goals of expanding access to higher education and developing greater class equity in access? What is the quality of computer science and electrical engineering education and graduates in the BRIC countries compared to the United States and other developed economies? What is the revealed capacity of each of BRIC states to transform their universities into 21st century institutions? What are the implications of these findings for the future role of the BRICs as centers of innovation and production in the global knowledge economy?
