Abstract

Our paper reveals a significant under-reported emergent phenomenon; the graduates of the well-established ‘Elite Traditional International Schools’ worldwide are beginning to cluster in certain universities, in certain ‘global cities’. As one might expect, New York and London are central to this clustering, alongside Boston, Toronto, and Vancouver. Surprisingly, these destinations are not the world’s top, elite universities, showing that the forms of class reasoning which we might expect of the ‘Trans-National Capitalist Class’ do not seemingly apply to this model of elite education. We explore the emerging evidence, and discuss its character and implications.
