Abstract

The study chosen for this particular assignment concerned the social and economic effects of globalisation as it related to the UAE. This was primarily concerned with the flow of migration and local employment in relation to the way in which it was impacting upon education in the region of the UAE. The concern was with identifying the contributing factors that led to migration and local employment.  It took into account an array of secondary research, which gave both qualitative themes and quantitative data. These were collected from articles written on the basis of research conducted relating to the UAE. It mainly concerns the topic of higher education due to its importance in a developing nation's socio-economic structure. The methodology used in the analysis was an array of qualitative themes and quantities data of migration and local employment. This was to be ascertained from the conditions of those that had gained higher education and those that had not. These two variables were taken into account. The independent variable was higher education, whereas the dependent variables were migration and local employment. The findings of the quantitative analysis revealed that higher education was not a significant factor in migration and/or local employment. Therefore, higher employment could not be said to be advantageous in relation to those that migrated from the UAE and/or those that found employment in the region. It was concluded that employers in the region were looking to employ both educated and uneducated workers. It was also concluded that the global environment offered employment opportunities to both educated and non-educated UAE citizens. Higher education could not be said to be significant in relation to globalisation. However, according to the qualitative findings, the structure of higher education could be amended and recommendations were provided for future research and policy.

Conclusion

The quantitative findings of this study revealed that higher education was not a significant factor in migration and/or local employment. Therefore, higher employment cannot be said to be advantageous in relation to those that migrate from the UAE and/or those that find employment in the region. Therefore, it would appear that employers in both the region and are looking to employ both educated and uneducated workers. Further, it would appear that the global environment offers employment opportunities for both educated and non-educated UAE citizens. Higher education cannot be said to be significant in relation to globalisation. However, according to the qualitative findings, the structure of higher education could be amended. It is the suggestion that this research could be used as an indication of particular themes in relation to education in the UAE from a broad perspective and that these themes can be used in the fields of notably politics and academic theory associated with the UAE and globalisation. They could also be used to match against pre-existing theories relating to globalisation as evidence to show the contemporary gaps in education.
