In the paper we theorize a framework for discussing quality assurance of globalized models of education used internationally. The philosophical assumption that homogeneity of perspectives achieves objectivity in practice is argued against using the examples of (1) Brain drain, and (2) Profit over quality. We present a coherent real world scenario for the abstract ideas on inequities in Sriraman & Adrian (2008) with a meta-analytical support of the literature.

Keywords: borderology; quality assurance; higher education; brain drain; meta-analysis of globalization of “higher education”; philosophy of education
