Higher education in the United States has seen a dramatic expansion throughout the last century. The lecture, while intended for a broad audience, will offer an overview of the US Higher Education (HE) system from an economist’s perspective. It will undertake an analysis of HE’s operation as a marketplace. I will firstly survey the main distinctive features of an American university (admission, students’ choice of specialization, funding, tuition, placement, etc.).
