Higher education and economic growth nexus
In this paper we try to examine the relationship between higher education and the GDP per capita. Indeed, most theoretical analyzes have confirmed that human capital has positive and significant effect on growth. This article explores time series causality between human capital (particularly higher education) and growth in three different countries, namely Tunisia, Morocco and South Korea during the period 1960-2011. For this, we use cointegration techniques and Granger causality tests. The results show that cointegration between higher education and economic growth exists only in South Korea. This finding is explained by the high level of human capital and the country's economy.
