Multinational Colleges and Universities: Leading, Governing, and Managing International Branch Campuses; New Directions for Higher Education
In the past 10 years, universities from around the world have been expanding their global reach by creating outposts in multiple countries. The most significant manifestation of this phenomenon is the creation of international branch campuses (IBCs), where students can attend classes, engage in student activities and earn a degree from the home institution without ever actually visiting the institution’s home country.
The volume seeks to address issues of leadership, administration and governance of branch campuses by using scholarly fieldwork and selected institutional case studies. In exploring the internal and external dynamics of IBCs, this volume includes chapters that address three broad themes: practical administrative strategies; student and academic issues; and institutional environments, cultures and policy arenas.
