The Case of a Malaysian Public University

Authors: Goh Soo Khoon
Tan Yao Sua
New Pb83 pp.
Subjects: Education, Malaysia

Publisher: SIRD
Published: 2015


This monograph examines the responses of a Malaysian public university, namely Universiti Sains Malaysia, to the impact of globalisation vis-à-vis three main areas of concern: the recruitment of international students, the requirement to engage with international academic publications, and the growing importance of world university rankings. There are concerted efforts put in place by the university to recruit more international students. But a global branding is needed to offset factors that have worked against this recruitment. In the area of academic publications, there has been an increased emphasis on publications in citation-indexed journals in line with the globalised context of academic publications. Concerted efforts have also been put in place to enhance the reputation of academic journals published by the university. Yet, it is in the area of world university rankings that the counter-globalisation stand of the university has been most thought-provoking in that it has rejected this standard benchmark for academic excellence by proposing an alternative benchmark.
