With the rise of the knowledge economy, universities are under pressure to embrace not just their traditional missions of teaching and research but a third mission of serving economic and social development. This book examines the major strategies that governments in East Asia have adopted to promote this kind of innovation in the education sector and investigates their strategies for enhancing the international competitiveness of their national higher education systems. Mok delves into how academic programs in East Asia have become "transnational," with everything from curriculum design and approaches to learning to strategies for research development designed with an eye to competition in the global economy.
