Internationalization of Higher Education in India

Internationalization of Higher Education in India

First Edition

November 2016 | 332 pages | SAGE India

An informative and insightful source of knowledge, analysis, and the latest data on internationalization of the Indian higher education system.

Offering an in-depth analysis of internationalization of higher education in India, this book explains how the phenomenon plays itself out, how to put it into practice on the home turf, and to do it in a way that it is available to all instead of catering to a select few. It applies relevant theoretical contexts, presents an extensive range of facts and figures as substantiating evidence, and stacks up this knowledge against ground reality.

With a sharp commentary on the state of affairs, the book argues that internationalization is the only way forward for India and policymakers, educationists, and academics must look towards other countries such as China and Brazil which have made a fruitful commitment to scale the global value chain by making internationalization of higher education a top agenda item.

[The book] is timely, as the higher education sector grapples with access, equity, and quality, while trying to climb the global ranking ladder and using that as an instrument to strengthen the country’s place in the global knowledge economy… [It] is highly recommended for practitioners and researchers who want to develop an understanding about the nature of internationalization of higher education in India, especially from a global and historical perspective.

Economic and Political Weekly, 17 February 2018

“Comprehensive, well-researched and critical study on the theory and practice of internationalization…draws attention …to issues that are sidelined in the blind pursuit of economic gains and commercial success.”
