Within higher education, world-class universities are commonly regarded as elite research universities and play a critical role in developing a nation's competitiveness in the global knowledge economy. An increasing number of countries, regions and higher education institutions in different parts of the world have joined the same battle for academic excellence. While emerging countries and their universities make every effort to enhance their capacity and boost their research performance, the academic superpowers endeavour to maintain - if not further improve- their global positions. "Building World-Class Universities: Different Approaches to a Shared Goal" intends to provide an in-depth picture of different approaches in pursuit of the shared goal of developing academic excellence, and to reflect the current trends in this field. Divided into three parts, the book covers: building world-class universities from a national/regional perspective, managing world-class universities from an institutional perspective, and measuring world-class universities from a ranking/indicator perspective. This book not only represents a contribution to the ongoing discussion on the topic of building world-class universities, but can be seen as a continuation of the previous three volumes on this topic - "World-Class Universities and Ranking: Aiming beyond Status," "The World-Class University as Part of a New Higher Education Paradigm: From Institutional Qualities to Systemic Excellence," and "Paths to a World-Class University: Lessons from Practices and Experiences." All four books will be useful readings for students and academics in higher education generally, in addition to policy makers and informed practitioners"
On the eve of the twenty-first century, the United States and Germany face common but also separate challenges that will be met in part by significant activity at the university level. This volume offers views and expert opinions from leading American and German educators and university administrators on the future role of this vital educational and cultural institution in both societies.
The book mainly investigates the challenges that confront France's unique dual system of higher education in facing internationalization and the recruitment of international students. This book focuses on the development of the institutional strategies in two groups of higher education institutions: University and Grande Ecole in responding to the opportunities and stresses of both Europe's Bologna process and globalization.
