Description

Praise for the First Edition:

"Higher education has exploded globally, and Gürüz's excellent, timely study is as useful a guidebook as one will find to this new (even revolutionary) world. . . [A] major contribution and starting point for an important conversation." Choice

"Gürüz's book is a powerful and remarkably comprehensive work dealing with a wide array of interconnected topics and complex data relating to globalization and international student mobility. . . . Higher Education and International Student Mobility in the Global Knowledge Economy is a wonderful read on many levels and clearly represents decades of careful data analysis and synthesis." International Review of Education

Students and scholars leaving their homes in search of education and knowledge is not a new phenomenon. An indispensable resource for understanding the international mobility of students, this book reveals how the global mobility of such students, scholars, programs, and institutions of higher education have evolved over time. Kemal Gürüz explores the contributions that the international mobility of students has made to civilization, scientific, and technological progress, and the ways in which it is occurring in today's global economy.

The second edition of this widely praise study is completely revised and updated, tracing international mobility in higher education through the first decade of the twenty-first century.
