Eight Flagship Universities in Africa (2009-2011)

Data research project by the Centre for Higher Education Transformation (CHET) and the Higher Education Research and Advocacy Network in Africa (HERANA) into eight African 'flagship' universities.

The dataset consists primarily of data on student enrolments, graduate outputs, academic staff and knowledge outputs at the eight universities.

The findings of the study are published in the report "An Empirical Overview of Eight Flagship Universities in Africa (2001 - 2011).

The report describes the collecting and analysis of cross-national higher education data for the group of eight universities in Africa. It concludes with an analysis of performance which focuses on the links between high-level academic staffing resources and high-level knowledge outputs. These eight universities are described as flagship universities because each is the most prominent public university in its country, and because all of the universities have broad flagship goals built into their vision and mission statements.
