Globalization generates new inputs for education policy-making and defines new problems that universities needs to address. In a global economy, most countries aim at raising their international competitiveness by offering new manpower profiles with new skills. With globalization, the information revolution, and increasing demands for a highly skilled workforce, nations are increasingly prioritizing and foster effective learning. This article looks at global perspectives on higher education and the role of ICT. The authors offer a balanced theoretical and research background of the opportunities and the potential benefits of information and communication technologies (ICT) for improving the quality of education in universities. The advances in Information and Communication Technologies are, at the same time, cause and consequence of globalisation. Authors discuss about using ICT technology, which contribute to the success of education in European universities. This form of learning promotes the development of important skills that students need to be successful both in the global labour market and in other areas of their lives. To meet the increasing demand for a workforce with up-to-date skills and competencies aligned with globally competitive industries and continue driving Slovakia economic growth into the next century, education systems have to embrace information and communication technology.
