With information technology and transportation developments driving an increasingly global knowledge economy, universities have increasingly had to internationalise to take advantage of this. Australian universities have been some of the major innovators in higher education internationalisation. Professor Pi-sheng Seet from Edith Cowan University, with his research experience in international talent flows and innovation, will discuss the internationalisation motivation and process for universities. He will elaborate on some of the challenges facing universities, especially Australian ones, given that they are facing increased competition, limited resources and a relatively mature internationalisation agenda, and their attempts to internationalisation with building global reputations and improved ranking performance.
