Emerging Economies Are Exporting Education

By Gabriel Sanchez Zinny. Universities in the United States have long been - and in many ways still are - the most attractive higher education option for students around the world. As recent research from the Brookings Institution demonstrates, the U.S. is a "global hub of higher education."
That is because the U.S. is capable of attracting a full 21 percent of all students studying abroad. According to Brookings, "an estimated 684,807 international students attended tertiary-level education programs in the United States in 2010, versus about 389,958 international students in the United Kingdom, the next-largest destination."

Can Overseas Branch Campuses Reflect Local Values?

http://chronicle.com/img/photos/biz/icons/worldwise-nameplate.gifBy Jason Lane and Kevin Kinser. We have been thinking a lot recently about the impact on local cultures of importing foreign higher education. How are outside providers different from indigenous institutions? How do branch campuses gain legitimacy and become embedded within the host country’s system of education? What does it mean when a campus established by a foreign university says it is a local institution? More than 60 countries are home to some 201 international branch campuses. Read more...

Rigid rules deter foreign varsities from entering India

Return to frontpageForeign universities are not eager to enter India, despite having tie-ups with their Indian counterparts, because of the stringent policy regime. In the current scenario, while a foreign educational institution can enter the country as a company (under the provisions of the Companies Act), no top international university has opened its campus in India.
To enter India, a foreign university has to be among the top 400, should apply under not-for-profit legal entities, and should be in existence for at least 20 years and accredited by an agency of that country or in the absence of its accreditation in that country, by an internationally accepted system of accreditation.

Modi govt should help export Indian higher education, say educationists

Educationists from 20 leading Indian private universities gathered at the House of Commons for an awards ceremony to fly India’s flag in the global higher education market, and announced plans to create an ‘education hub’ on the lines of medical tourism and IT services.
The awards were given by a consortium of Indian private universities called SkillTree, after an ‘audit’ of courses in the universities over two years. Out of a total of 674 universities in India, 183 were private, educationists at the event said. More...

The university as a partner, not a competitor

http://enews.ksu.edu.sa/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/UWN.jpgBy James Holloway and Amy Conger. As higher education becomes more global, many universities have been building satellite campuses in China, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates and other countries in recent years. These initiatives are impressive, and they might fit the strategic needs of institutions. But the University of Michigan has been resisting the trend for several reasons. Read more...

International branch campuses get too much attention

http://enews.ksu.edu.sa/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/UWN.jpgBy Rahul Choudaha. International branch campuses receive a lot of attention for their motivations, successes and failures. In addition, some recent big-name endeavours like New York University Shanghai and Yale-NUS College in Singapore add to the perception that more institutions are building overseas campuses. In reality, branch campuses form only a small proportion of the internationalisation activities and models of transnational education engaged in by institutions. Read more...
