Abstract—The role of higher education in shaping global
talent competitiveness and growth in the modern world is an
excellent area of interest. To meet the growing demand for
talented human capital in today's modern industries, HEIs must
mobilize and standardize policies and develop programs for
talent management among students as the future workforce.
This study aimed to analyze the role of HEI in shaping talent
competitiveness and growth. Selected higher education
indicators that characterize the talent and growth development
of at least 117 countries were analyzed using R version 4.1.3.
The Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI) was used to
measure the talent competitiveness of the selected countries. To
measure talent growth, we used the average annual change in
the GTCI over the last five years; hence secondary data on the
role of higher education in shaping talent competitiveness and
growth were used. Various academic factors and skills that
stimulate global talent competitiveness and growth are outlined
in this study. Considering the factors that affect talent
competitiveness and growth globally, colleges and universities
place a strong emphasis on developing graduates' skill sets,
advocating for, and organizing aspects in terms of mean years
of schooling, including professional development, internet, and
digital skills, and getting students ready for international
co-invention and scientific publication.
Index Terms—Competitiveness, development, education, economic growth.
