A recent international conference in HCM City discussed various practices and models of leadership and management in higher education.

It was organised by the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organisation (SEAMEO) Regional Training Centre in Vietnam and Canada’s British Columbia Council for International Education.

The two-day event focused on issues related to institutional autonomy, quality assurance and accreditation, employability of graduates, and leveraging the fourth industrial revolution for higher education.

“Internationalisation of education is what universities are engaged in,” Randall Martin, executive director of the British Columbia Council for International Education, said.

“Internationalisation tries to create a softer, more human face to globalisation.

“Internationalisation is about reciprocity, diversity and supporting students in the new world economy.

“In terms of meeting the new global economy, those are the forces we need to deal with and prepare our students for jobs that exist and jobs that don’t exist yet and deal with people from around the world in terms of human migration and immigration.

“The people, the communities and the companies that our students are going to be working with are very different from what I grew up with now. So, the universities have to adapt and prepare themselves and the students for those changes,” he said.
