During the recent decades, some countries in the continent of Asia have emerged as strong economic powers, for example, China, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan. During the same period, however, Pakistan has experienced alarming increase in its challenges that have vigorously influenced its socio-economic as well as political system. Issues, whether economic or social, can be deeply attributed to the system of education that demands large-scale shifts in its direction. At the higher education level, too, the conditions are not different. Consequences of this state of affairs have so far led to a vulnerable present and continue towards a more indeterminate and illusive future. Wise nations are focusing on their education systems including the higher education to turn their human resource into a real capital. Reviewing ten years (2003 to 2013) of higher education in Pakistan with reference to the identification of its quality on the
human resource development, this research paper is an attempt to mention some causes of the issue and suggest some measures with the belief that a quality higher education is a vital means for the survival of Pakistan’s economy and its growth.
