In today’s open and integrated world, competition has become central to the higher education subsector. Key facets of the global competition phenomenon include the development of global university ranking systems, academic capitalism, and mergers of “strong” and “weak” institutions. This volume provides a critical assessment of the phenomenon and the complex ways in which global competition is envisioned and enacted in various countries and their higher education institutions. Senior and emerging scholars in the field address the tensions and challenges inherent in the global competition phenomenon by delving into issues such as university rankings, quality assurance, cross-border higher education provision, and privatization.

The nature of higher education is by no means fixed: it has evolved over time; different models of higher education co-exist alongside each other at present; and, worldwide, there are demands for higher education to change to better help support economic growth and to better fit chagning social and economic circumstances. This book examines, from an Asian perspective, the debates about how higher education should change. It considers questions of funding, and of who will attend universities, and the fundamental question of what universities are for, especially as the three key funcations of universities - knowledge creation through research, knowledge dissemination through teaching and service, and knowledge conservation through libraries, the disciplinary structuring of knowledge and in other ways - are increasingly being carried out much more widely outside universities in the new "knowledge society". Throughout, the book discusses the extent to which the countries of East Asia are developing new models of higher education, thereby better preparing themselves for the "new "knowledge society", rather than simply following old Western models.

The last decade has seen new forms of cross-border post-secondary education, not only international student mobility, but also the mobility of educational programmes and institutions across borders. This book brings together up-to-date statistics, case studies and policy reports. It analyses the major trends and developments in cross-border post-secondary education in North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region. It identifies the rationales of stakeholders and the major approaches to cross-border education. It then focuses on the main challenges that the rapid growth in cross-border education presents for policies both at the national and international levels. Topics covered include: policy initiatives to promote cross-border post-secondary education; individual, institutional and country rationales for delivering or receiving cross-border education service; size and growth of cross-border post-secondary education in terms of student mobility, programme mobility (e.g. e-learning) and institutional mobility (e.g. international branch campuses and foreign direct investments); assessment of the possible impact of the General Agreement on Trade in Services (WTO); challenges facing cross-border post-secondary education as well as domestic post-secondary education systems in a context of growing internationalisation (e.g. regulation in terms of quality assurance and recognition of qualifications, cost and financing, equity of access, trade agreements, capacity building in receiving countries, mobility of highly skilled personnel, cultural diversity).
