Education: the economic imperative

VIC
Jun 27
How can the education and training services sector underpin Australia's economic growth, and what is needed into the future? Join leading thinkers on the transformation of education services in a dynamic service-based economy.

Speakers

Prof. Margaret Gardner AC, President and Vice-Chancellor, Monash University
Associate Professor Ian Marshman, Honorary Principal Fellow, Melbourne Centre for the Study of Higher Education
Helen Zimmerman, Chief Corporate Affairs Officer, Navitas
Professor Stephen Parker AO, Partner and National Sector Leader, Education, KPMG

Event overview

In Australia’s shift to a knowledge-based, service economy, education plays a critical role as both a leading export sector and an enabler of productivity growth. At this event, we bring together leaders from the sector to discuss:

  • How well our education system is adapting to meet future skills needs;
  • The impacts and opportunities of globalisation and digital disruption;
  • The growing off-shore presence and export profile of Australia’s leading institutions; and
  • What government and education providers can do to grow and transform the sector.

This event builds on CEDA’s forthcoming report Improving service sector productivity: the economic imperative which will be released on 15 June 2017. The report explores the impediments and drivers of productivity growth in Australia’s services-led economy.
