Students and scholars’ mobility, global rankings, accreditation, evaluation, pressures to become world class universities and academic enterprise are just some of the challenges that higher education institutions are facing in our globalized context. How are universities coping with these –sometimes even contradictory- pressures? What different strategies towards globalization have been pursued? Are strategies alike in the north (center) and the south (periphery)? Discussing with the actual decision makers we expect will contribute to shed light on these and other debates.
