back to overview

In the era of globalization since the 1990s, international cooperation has become one of the most challenging topics of debate and research in higher education. In “Internationalization in Mexican Higher Education” Cruz Ruiz attempts to provide scientific evidence on the debates and different types of internationalization found in higher education from a Mexican point of view. It identifies German and Mexican partnership collaborations in institutions of higher education as well as the experiences of German and Mexican university personnel involved in educational projects. The findings are based on qualitative research using documentary evidence, semi-structured expert interviews and qualitative content analysis. The study encompasses three levels. At the macro level, internationalization of higher education is discussed in a general way but with a focus on the Mexican situation, presenting a typology of prevailing types of internationalization. The meso level includes a secondary analysis of official data on the bilateral relations between German and Mexican institutions of higher education. The micro level presents a case study of two particular university collaborations using the experiences of those involved in both countries.

press

Este libro es, sin duda, recomendable para todos aquellos que se encuentren involucrados en el proceso de la internacionalización de las instituciones de educación superior (IES) mexicanas. No solo proporciona elementos valiosos que pueden ser considerados para futuras investigaciones, sino también para establecer criterios de funcionalidad en el establecimiento de convenios, con el fin de evitar un crecimiento desmedido que derive en una falta de viabilidad. La obra es también un aporte a los estudios cualitativos la internacionalización superior, los cuales son escasos y necessarios para conocer el impacto en las instituciones así como las ventajas y desventajas de su implementación.
