Resource description

This article draws on analysis of industrial economic development to contrast two institutional models of internationalisation in universities. One is based upon copying and serving large corporations- this approach implies failures in the educational process- in the extreme a world with a small number of first tier universities that fail to serve the interests of communities and societies in which they operate. The second model is based upon a type of networking- multinational web- drawing on behaviour of certain small firms. Research and learning that is inclusive, enhanced by widened experiences, understanding and options is envisaged as the outcome of the model rooted in the college of scholars approach where the emphasis is on democracy, positive freedom and multinationalism.
