Globally, the rules and regulations of higher education are for the betterment of economies and social uplift. The objective of this study is to develop a link between governance indicators and educational outcomes. The current study proposes a framework covering three broad categories of governance indicators: political governance, economic governance and institutional dimension of governance. These three categories are accompanied by five educational factors: higher education expenditures, higher education enrolment, higher education expenditures per student, literacy rate, scientific and technical journal articles and economic growth. The study covers three countries: Syria, Lebanon and Jordan for the period 2000–2011. The OLS model is employed for estimating the possible links between governance indicators and educational outcomes. The results show conflicting effects of governance on higher education indicators, but in most of the cases, it is not significant.
