The coming decades will be an era of unprecedented change in the world of education. A new global education architecture will emerge. The convergence of academic and technological environments, opportunities for mixed forms of training, and earlier vocational orientation towards new industries are just some of the trends shaping the future of education. A significant number of the breakthrough solutions in this area are being provided not by traditional academic institutions, but instead by new players on the education market: finance and technology companies, scientific associations, and exciting private initiatives. A new transnational market is taking shape, and may soon enough become a notable competitor to traditional educational institutions, transforming education markets and changing the rules of the game. What will education look like in 510 years time? How will new technologies transform traditional formats? How much will the role of business in the development of this sector grow?
