About this book

Introduction

This book offers an in-depth investigation of the globalization of higher education at Chinese universities and colleges. The proposed “Global Higher Education Shared Community” model reflects the globalization of higher education with Chinese characteristics in terms of its conceptual, practical and strategic dimensions.

Generally speaking, the book mainly conceptualizes and constructs a model of the specific type of globalization currently taking place at Chinese universities and colleges. As such, it offers a valuable resource for scholars and researchers who are interested and work in research on globalization in higher education from a comparative perspective; for administrators and stakeholders in Chinese higher education management; and for graduate students who are majoring or minoring in comparative higher education.
