The Next Big Thing in International Education: Fall 2013 Issue of IIENetworker

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The fall 2013 IIENetworker magazine, titled "The Next Big Thing in International Education" is now available as a free interactive flipbook.

The field of international education is experiencing a period of unprecedented growth. The global education market is reportedly worth $4.4 trillion and growing, according to the London-based investment bank IBIS Capital. The number of globally mobile students has surpassed 4 million. The academic community, governments and the private sector are constantly changing and adapting – to keep their institutions relevant and competitive, to meet the demands of the workforce or global development challenges, or simply to better prepare their students for a global future.

The authors in this issue of IIENetworker provide many thought-provoking perspectives on the future of international education. The British Council’s Elizabeth Shepherd describes various "megatrends" that will impact and shape international education, such as demographic shifts, changes in political conditions, digital technology, and global workforce demands. Susan Buck Sutton from Bryn Mawr College suggests we add 'collaborative internationalization' to our "arsenal of significant terms," and New York University’s John Sexton makes the case that the 'global network university' model can address two major globalization trends: the miniaturization of the world and the emergence of 'idea capitals.' Others predict that the next big things will include the commercialization of global research, innovation clusters or even ‘Edu-glomerates.’
