  • Daman-guilé DIAWARA University of Social Sciences and Management of Bamako, Republic of Mali


The approach is to shed light on the "central" role of higher education in economic growth, given that higher education is a place of formation of human capital. Moreover, the acquisition of “knowledge” results in the accumulation of human capital. And the development of knowledge is essentially “attributable” to higher education.

The study emphasizes the analysis of “human capital” and “economic growth”. This indicates the relationship between education and economic growth. By highlighting the contribution from higher education to economic growth. Beyond that, through the education system, higher education, at the very top of the levels of education, is a place of “know-how”, which generates “production of wealth». On the one hand the economic analysis, a review of the literature, the context of higher education and economic growth, and the empirical results. And on the other hand econometric modeling. Using mathematical tools, descriptive statistics and econometrics, with stock and flow variables. The obtained results, higher education, significantly improves the increase in national productivity in Mali. Hence the need to prioritize all levels of education.
