Article
Full-text available
A major cluster of economic engines that have changed Asian higher education, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan have all developed high-income societies as well as world-class universities which linked local “knowledge economies” to global science and created hubs for international collaborations and mobility. However, there has been li...

It cannot be overstated how comprehensively international students contribute to the higher education sector and the American economy more broadly. More than one million international students were enrolled at U.S. colleges and universities in the 2019-20 academic year. They contributed $38.7 billion and supported more than 400,000 jobs to the Unit...

Commentators have pointed to the "Trump Effect" for falling international student enrollment in the U.S. higher education sector. When taking a closer look at student mobility trends from South Korea, however, the facts and figures tell a different story. For the past two decades, South Korea has been consistently the third largest sender of intern...
Article
Full-text available
Previous research has documented a worldwide shift in the teaching of history that looks beyond nation-state based history instruction in favor of a post-national curriculum that imparts knowledge of diverse identities, cultures, and global issues. In South Korea, however, the construction of national identity in history education continues to be a...
Article
Full-text available
Universities are undergoing a transformation in which higher learning intersects with a class of cosmopolitan elites. Certainly within South Korea, universities are launching international colleges as a way to position themselves as choice institutions that cater to elite students seeking global opportunities. Yet little work has been done to exami...
Chapter
Full-text available
Though national universities have historically enjoyed a privileged position in the Korean higher education sector, today they face acute challenges as a result of the tensions created by global rankings and the quest for world-class status. This chapter surveys the history of national universities in South Korea, leading up to today. We pay partic...
Chapter
Full-text available
In the past two decades, higher education has been going through a dramatic change, in large part to meet the dramatic challenge of globalization. A number of theoretical orientations have been devised to explain some of these changes, including intriguing labels such as Academic Capitalism and McDonaldization. These orientations usually give exces...
Article
Full-text available
Does the internationalisation of Asian higher education give preference to Western faculty members, especially against the backdrop of internationalisation trends that call for an importation of Western pedagogical practices, ideas, and standards? This article seeks to complicate such a claim through close examination of the Western faculty members...
Article
Full-text available
Under the slogan of internationalisation, Korean universities have opened international colleges as a way to better attract and accommodate foreign students. However, due to a lack of foreign student recruiting capability, the majority of the students who enrol at one such international college are not foreign, but Korean. Contradictions arise when...
Chapter
Full-text available
This chapter argues that internationalization can be conceptualized as the competitive strategies that a higher education institution takes in order to retain domestic students who would otherwise study abroad—what I call “reverse student mobility”—that redefines how we understand internationalization as predominantly concerned with a search for fo...
Chapter
Full-text available
Globalization has been neither neutral nor uniform in its impact. It affects countries, cultures, and systems in different ways some in positive ways and others in more negative ways. All sectors of society are being affected; and higher education is no exception. The increased importance of the knowledge industry, innovations in information and co...
Chapter
Full-text available
The South Korean government has enacted a series of policy initiatives to recruit more foreign students as a means of generating more income for the country’s universities. These internationalisation policies are a direct response to the phenomenon of global competition that is currently reshaping higher education. The case of South Korea is indica...
Article
Full-text available
As globalization has become the focal point of higher education, competition has become a central preoccupation. Competition is closely connected with a global free-market economy. Combined with the impact of globalization and the development of the global “knowledge economy”, these competitive forces have resulted in the global competition phenome...
