The phenomenon of globalization appears to be a product of renewed beliefs and contestations in a global process, which has drawn the international community at the threshold of a global village. These range from politics, economy, communication and education to even agriculture and food. National culture and national economies are all becoming irrelevant and giving way to globalized strategies characterized by powerful market forces. The market scenario is dominated by powerful transnational entities that owe no allegiance to any State. This study therefore review globalization and education with the main aim of addressing its implications and challenges in Nigeria.
