Countries differ in their appreciation of the role of education at its various levels in achieving economic development. Some believe that primary and secondary education play a large role in achieving economic development to the extent that spending on higher education appears to be less of a priority, while for others, higher levels of education have a positive role and important in increasing the gross domestic product . Others find that higher education is more productive for countries that are characterized by modern technology, i.e. developed countries, while primary education will be more suitable for developing countries, and the level of secondary education is more suitable for middle countries, which means that higher education plays an important role in the growth of the economies of developed countries Unlike developing countries, which may negatively affect their growth. Many researches raise controversy about the status of higher education and its role in achieving economic development, allowing the room to realize the importance of research in the developmental role of higher education and its potential to catch up with developed countries, and that it is not possible to rely on an educational level without another because there is no discrepancy in the profitability of investment between different levels. The current study aims to identify the status of higher education and the extent of its contribution to achieving economic development, which makes us pose the following problem: What is the status of higher education and its role in achieving economic development through studies of different international experiences.‎
