This book brings together the views of an international group of experts on the internationalization of higher education, covering such themes as the international rankings of universities, issues of funding and autonomy, and the improvements needed in the promotion and commercialization of university research.


Particular attention is paid to the system of higher education in the United States of America, and their domination of the top rankings. These universities and their experiences are compared to the higher education systems in the transition economies of Eastern Europe, which serve as an example of the problems facing middle income countries in terms of funding, the social and economic consequences of low rankings, and possible avenues of reform.
