Internationalization Strategies for the Global Knowledge Society
by Peter Szyszlo, 2016
The purpose of this article is to improve understanding of internationalization as a strategic response to the catalysts of globalization and the knowledge society. The paper will attempt to critically identify and interpret how the aforementioned elements are being recontextualized and translated into responsive internationalization policies and systemic institutional change. The article takes a critical analysis approach on current internationalization efforts and provides a conceptual framework for developing a performance indicator set through a combination of institutional change theory (North 1990) and the Delta cycle for internationalization (Rumbley 2010). Recommendations on future research areas are made at the conclusion of the article.

Branding Canadian Higher Education
by Zainab Kizilbash, 2011
The branding of national higher education systems is a global trend that has become increasingly common over the last decade. One of the main motives driving this trend is the view that branding a national higher education system will increase that country’s market share of international students. This is evident as national higher education systems compete against one another in a high-stakes battle for international students byattempting to differentiate themselves in the marketplace of higher education.
