This book provides a critical review of the internationalization process among higher education institutions (HEIs), taking a closer look at the case of business schools. The first part offers a novel definition of this phenomenon and examines the forces that drive international initiatives. It then examines and explains the “internationalization paradox”: the observation that despite evidence that many international initiatives fail to deliver what they promise, for the heads of HEIs they nevertheless remain at the top of the agenda. In turn, the second part of the book develops a unifying framework that identifies alternative models of internationalization and explains how they relate to one another. Based on this framework, the book presents a model of the truly global HEI, whose mission is to learn from the world rather than teach the world what it knows. The book’s central thesis is that it is unlikely that HEIs will be able to transform themselves into truly global HEIs because of historical and organizational barriers rather than a shortage of resources or a lack of visionary leadership. The book concludes that most HEIs should refrain from claiming that their aim is to become global institutions, and should instead focus on the successful implementation of an import-export model of internationalization that calls for initiatives such as the internationalization of the curriculum, the creation of student and faculty exchange programs, and the participation in international academic and research partnerships. Any attempt to transform themselves into truly global institutions is unlikely to succeed and may distract them from their fundamental mission: to educate their home-based students and help them become effective global citizens.

Internationalizing Business Education is a carefully edited selection of twenty-three essays written by leading educators of international business. this exhaustive treatment of the various dimensions of business school internationalization is divided into seven parts: Rationale and Conceptual Foundation; Historical Perspectives; Faculty Development; Curriculum; Institutional Strategies; Center/Institute Models, and Linkages. This work evolved from the Roundtable on Internationalizing the Business Schools and Faculty held in June 1991 at Michigan State University. The conference brought together business faculty and administrators from North America, Europe, and Australia who shared their perspectives and experiences, and brainstormed about approaches to internationalizing business education. These experts present their views in this volume. In the 1990s, businesses continue to face the challenge of staying competitive in an increasingly global market. Business schools need to internationalize their programs to remain competitive. Until now, information about alternative strategies was not widely available. This book provides business educators, public policymakers, scholars of educational practices, and business executives with the tools they need to compete globally.

The Globalization of Internationalization is a timely text which gives voice to emerging perspectives as an increasing range of countries engage in the process of internationalization. The pressure to internationalize cannot be ignored by institutions anywhere in today’s world, yet the dominant paradigms in the conception of internationalization traditionally come from the English-speaking world and Western Europe. This book sets out to offer alternative viewpoints. Different dimensions and interpretations of internationalization in countries and regions whose perspectives have received little attention to date provide food for thought, and help to broaden understanding of its application in alternative contexts. Combining diverse perspectives from around the world, this new volume in the Internationalization in Higher Education series seeks answers to key questions such as: What are the main characteristics of internationalization viewed from different cultural and regional backgrounds and how do they differ from traditional models such as in Western Europe, North America and Australasia? What issues in different global contexts have an impact on internationalization processes? What are the key challenges and obstacles encountered in developing innovative and non-traditional models of internationalization? With contributions from world-renowned international authors, and perspectives from countries and contexts seen only rarely in the literature, The Globalization of Internationalization offers distinctive overviews and insights while exploring a range of thematic and regional issues arising from these considerations. This will be essential reading both as an academic resource and a practical manual for university leaders, academics, higher education policy advisers and non-governmental organizations which fund higher education.

Internationalizing a School of Education examines how Michigan State University has pursued internationalization and globalization through an integration-infusion approach to research, teaching, and outreach. The integration-infusion approach was introduced in MSU's College of Education in the early 1980s as a replacement for the more disconnected comparative education program. This approach offers a vision where all faculty members and students are knowledgeable about education in all its international diversity, where their conceptions and aspirations are influenced by international research and experience, and where they reach out to other countries in collaborative efforts to do research, inform policy, and improve practice. Featuring profiles of faculty members and students who were leaders of this integration-infusion approach, this text provides a survey of the landscape of comparative education in the United States while examining channels of internationalization specific to MSU, highlighting the success of integration-infusion at an institutional level.

China began opening to the outside world in 1978. Based on extensive research, the author focuses on transnational contacts in tightly regulated areas such as business and higher education, rural development and investment. The cumulative effect of these contacts, he asserts, has been a profound shift in the institutional structures and normative aims of Beijing.

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2014 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, grade: 1,0, University of Leipzig, language: English, abstract: The following paper was developed in the context of internationalization in education and how international education can be promoted. According to a popular online encyclopedia, internationalization in a broader sense can be regarded as international activities, mostly regarded in an economic sense as the process of increasing involvement of enterprises in international markets (see: Wikipedia/internationalization) However, international activities in the economy not only affect economies itself but also societies worldwide. Therefore, people involved need to adapt their perspective from a national towards a more international one. Thus, activities towards internationalization should first of all be promoted in education for students to acquire the necessary intercultural knowledge to be equipped with the necessary competencies to become a global citizen.

Globalization is changing the face of Higher Education across the world. Academics and students today are internationally mobiles and unprecedented numbers of international exchanges are cross-border education projects are being developed. The implications for individual universities are significant: international students can bring much needed revenues to boost university coffers and stimulate university classrooms but they also have high expectations and demands. This book discusses the implications for those involved in managing the organizational processes and those designing programmes and supporting the student experience. A key concern in the text is that of reciprocal internationalization - the importance for universities to develop within an internationally-integrated environment rather than as national universities which accommodate the needs of people from other countries into their pre-existing practices. The emphasis throughout the discussion is therefore on the development of inter-cultural competences for university people supported by sustainable international management practices.

Information about internationalizing undergraduate education is presented. Data gathered from the membership of the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) provide a profile of the degree of internationalization of these institutions. Additionally, major means of internationalizing the curriculum and the institution are identified, and practical guidelines are summarized to assist those who wish to know where and how to start to internationalize their campus or how to strengthen and refine that process. Survey results provide information on the extent of internationalization of the institutions using a five category classification scheme, the distribution of variables (e.g., the existence of planned international programs, study abroad, and program relations with the less developed countries), the seeking of grants and success rate, ethnic studies, institutional location and size, institutional operating budget, and requirements for graduation, foreign languages, and teaching English as a second language. The major curricular options that might be considered are: the infusion of nonwestern material, comparative approaches, issue-oriented approaches, area and civilization studies, intercultural communication, international development studies, and international studies major or minor. Establishing international education exchanges and funding arrangements are addressed. A list of 13 guidelines for AASCU institutions, a bibliography, a sample questionnaire, and information on funding sources are included. (SW)
