UPCEA Annual Conference Session on Internationalization Strategies and Emerging Growth Opportunities

Future Ready: Aligning Internationalization Strategies With Emerging Growth Opportunities
As institutions prepare for the impending “unbundling” of higher education, they are rethinking and innovating their portfolio of degree programs to complement with non-degree, professional training, intensive English and blended learning. This is especially critical in an environment of increasing competition for talent, resources and reputation. The future of international higher education is likely to be accelerated by institutional strategies that leverage partnerships, technology and insights to meet shifting student demand. This interactive panel discussion will bring together leaders from diverse institutional contexts on how they are experimenting with new models, prioritizing their resources and aligning their strategies to maximize the potential of global growth opportunities.
