The Top 12 Highest Educated Countries In The World


Every year, the World Economic Forum issues its Global Competitiveness Report to provide a well-researched set of rankings of all of the countries of the world. The annual international study provides holistic scores for each nation based on a host of factors related to education. These include, among others, educational attainment among the population, availability and access to schools, quality of schools, costs, and diversity.

There are four thematic dimensions by which each nation is ranked.

  • Capacity measures to what extent a nation’s overall population has received varying levels of educational experiences.
  • Deployment calculates the degree to which skills are accumulated and applied among the population.
  • Development reports how much the education of a country’s population adapts and improves as the economy evolves.
  • Know-how measures how wide and deep a nation’s overall set of skills is.

The holistic scores calculated based on these thematic dimensions provides a good way to generate overall rankings.
