About this book

This book investigates university internationalization in different national contexts and compares internationalization performance across national boundaries. Internationalization has been recognised by policymakers as the key to perform successfully within the new global context: the author identifies primary motivations for universities to embrace this agenda, and deconstructs the phenomenon into measurable dimensions and components. Using extensive qualitative data from university leaders and practitioners, this book analyses the global forces that shape the international education landscape, and reviews the existing instruments for measuring internationalization. In doing so, the author proposes an integrated understanding of university internationalization and indicates benchmarks that can help to quantify and measure this phenomenon. This book will be of interest and value to students and scholars of university internationalization.

Reviews

“Measuring University Internationalization by Catherine Gao is a highly relevant study on why and how universities should embrace the internationalization agenda. Catherine represents the best of the new generation of international higher education scholars, challenging and developing existing research on internationalization in higher education.” (Hans de Wit, Director of the Center for International Higher Education at Boston College, USA)

“This original and insightful study of university internationalisation by Yuan Gao brings a new rigour to the discussion. Focused on key countries in the Asia-Pacific region, we can expect it to be widely read.” (Professor Simon Marginson, University of Oxford, UK, and Director of the ESRC/OFSRE Centre for Global Higher Education)

“People in higher education often find internationalization high-sounding and cannot make head or tail of it. This timely volume provides them with a convenient yet well-grounded grip. It is an essential reading for both theorists and practitioners.” (Rui Yang, Professor of Education, The University of Hong Kong)
