About this book

This volume examines the changes taking place within graduate education in the Asia Pacific Region. A collection of essays by distinguished scholars from eight Asia Pacific nations links profound changes occurring in the economies and societies of the region to the many changes taking place within higher education. Focusing on how the dynamics of a changing global economy are affecting the ways higher education institutions are responding,  particular changes are seen to be taking place in graduate education as many societies experience the need to produce graduates of high quality with elevated qualifications.  Such changes are not without challenge or difficulty as issues of finance. Questions of appropriate directions of innovation and overall higher education capacity continue to frame the broader issue of the changing nature of graduate education.

Reviews

“In this Pacific Century, works such as this one are essential to understanding how our multi-national and multi-cultural Pacific Rim is adapting and adjusting with the increasingly open exchange of ideas and knowledge. Neubauer and Buasuwan’s edited volume captures not only what has been occurring in graduate education in the region, but also identifies the direction it will go in the coming decades and the impact this will have on society.” (Matthew Liao-Troth, Provost, Hawai’i Pacific University, USA)

"This outstanding book clearly demonstrates that graduate education in Asia Pacific is very dynamic and that higher education in this region evolves rapidly and continues to be transformed by the process of globalization. The editors of this book comprehensively capture the complexities and trends of graduate education in this region.” (Krasae Chanawongse, Former Minister of University Affairs, Government of Thailand)
