This book develops new and intriguing insights into globalization theory and internationalization practice, expanding the investigation of East Asian values and contexts in comparison and separate from Western-dominant thoughts of globalization and internationalization in higher education. The authors reveal how the "Westernized" look is not entirely suitable in an ever-evolving globalized world and also address how these institutions are moving towards globalization theory and internationalization practice that is compatible for themselves and their nation’s global engagement. They develop a lively discussion over the purposes and goals of internationalization in East Asia and specifically, what innovative programs these university systems should be developing in order to cultivate global leadership among its students, faculty, and the institution as a whole.
