Graduate education is directly affected by globalization, creating opportunities and challenges related to the increasing competition for talent and funding, the pursuit of excellence, growing mobility, emerging global models, practices, and networks. This requires UU to respond with an advanced internationalization strategy.
What are the essential aspects of such an advanced strategy ? How can it be shaped and implemented? What are the specific trends and issues regarding graduate education?
Especially regarding on-campus and on-line models?
