This chapter provides an overview of highly skilled migration into developed countries. In particular, it looks at the balance of highly skilled migration within the OECD and between the OECD countries and other countries of the world. Thanks to recent progress in data collection on migrants’ educational attainments, the chapter outlines the skill structure of the foreign‐born population in the developed world, compared to the native population in receiving and sending countries. It also analyses the development of the pool of highly skilled workers in both developed and less developed countries. The chapter looks at how many migrants are represented in top management and professional occupations in receiving countries in order to shed some light on the question of whether the battle for talent affects the recruitment of elites. The chapter examines whether and to what extent the international mobility of students has increased at different levels of tertiary education.

Keywords:   migration, highly skilled migrants, foreign-born managers, international students
