Dear AIB members, 
I would like to invite scholars to contribute chapters for a book with title "Global Business Strategies for Institutions of Higher Learning", will be published by Universiti Sains Malaysia Press. 
In recent years, the term “globalisation” surpassed the “internationalisation” in the frequency employed in economically advanced countries in characterizing cross-national changes of both contexts of higher learning and higher learning systems themselves. The term “globalisation” suggests that increasing border-cross activities in higher education take along a blurring of borders, while “internationalisation” is based on the assumption that national systems continue to play a role in the process of increasing border-crossing activities. Moreover, the term “globalisation” is often put forward when claims are made that higher learning is bound to be more strongly affected by world-wide economic developments as well as by suggestions that the individual higher learning institutions, notably those wishing to place themselves in the first league of reputation hierarchy, have to compete globally.


Suggested topics are as following, but not limited to:
1)Globalization and its Effect on Higher Learning Industry

2)The Emerging Trends in Higher Learning Institutions

3)Going Global, The Market Analysis

4)Internationalization of Institutions of Higher Learning 

5)Framework for Managing the Performance of Branch Campuses of Foreign Universities in Host Countries

6)Academic Talent Performance Management                                               

7)Quality Control and Organizational Performance

8)Best Practices for Branch Campuses of Foreign Universities in Host Countries

9)International cooperation and mobility

10)Globalisation in terms of blurring the borders of national systems and increasing world-wide interconnectedness,

11)The new steering and management system in higher education, and

12)Knowledge society (pressures for relevance, new patterns of competences).
