The critical issues and challenges for education systems in the globalisation age will be analysed. The theoretical background for the improvement of the micro- and macro-education systems based on the theory of the competence transfer by networks will be explained and applied for the diversification of education systems. It is related to the particular relevance of individualisation and diversification as strategic success factor. The application of diversification is essential for improving the access to the educational markets. The future effects of synergy and prognostic development based on diversification in networks of higher education will be derived from special case studies realised by educational organisations and networks such as GUIDE.
