Assessing the Effectiveness of the Internationalization Process in Higher Education Institutions: A Case Study of Florida International University

Iuspa, Flavia Eleonora 11 October 2010 (has links)
The purpose of this study was to examine a Higher Education Institution’s (HEI) process of internationalization. The theoretical model developed by Van Dijk and Miejer (1997) was used to review Florida International University (FIU)’s policy, support, and implementation dimensions and determine its position on the Internationalization Cube, and assess how FIU’s international activities fit into its different organizational processes. In addition, the study sought to shed light on student and faculty attitudes toward internationalization. Qualitative and quantitative data were collected from examining organizational documents, interviews, descriptive data on FIU’s international activities using the International Dimension Index, and the Student and Faculty Survey on Internationalization. FIU’s international activities results were analyzed in relation to a panel of experts’ item relevancy index. The Likert-type survey scales’ frequencies and percentages were calculated as well as Spearman Rho correlations between the survey’s three scales and demographic and experiences variables. The study found that FIU is located on position six of a possible eight positions on the Van Dijk and Meijer Internationalization Cube with the following characteristics: Priority Policy, One-Sided Support, and Structured Implementation toward internationalization. The analysis of FIU’s results on international activities showed that FIU exhibits all the activities considered to be strong indicators of internationalization but for position seven placement special attention is needed in the areas of foreign language study, international students, study abroad, faculty movement and involvement in international projects. The survey indicated students and faculty rated the Benefits of Internationalization highly but didn’t perceive strong institutional Support for Internationalization. Faculty age and offshore programs participation; student gender, race/ethnicity and class status; and for both, study abroad and knowledge of students travel grant had significant positive correlations with student and faculty attitudes. The study concluded that an association exists between FIU’s position on the Internationalization Cube and its international activities. Recommendations for policy, implementation, and future studies were made. It was concluded that advancing FIU’s position on the Cube will require adjustments in FIU’s policy, support and implementation dimensions. Differences in student and faculty views toward internationalization should be taken into account when planning internationalization efforts.

Pre-internationalization : - A case study of the decision to internationalize among small and medium sized Swedish enterprises

Selimi, Arta, Stodell, Simone January 2012 (has links)
The process of internationalization has been one of the major areas of interest for researchers for over four decades. The phase that precedes internationalization for firms, known as the pre-internationalization phase, has also been of interest to study. Firms that are in this early stage of becoming international, are characterized by being active only in the domestic market but with intentions to expand. However, within this phase, little is known about the stimuli that affect firms to expand their operations to foreign markets. By combining the traditional theories of the drivers and barriers to internationalize, with the new theories concerning the entrepreneurial influence in small and young firms, this study serves to complement a particular research gap in the pre-internationalization phase. The purpose of this study is to describe the pre-internationalization phase of SMEs, analyze how drivers, barriers and entrepreneurial characteristics of managers affect the decision to internationalize and to contribute to a further understanding of the research gap in the preinternationalization phase. A deductive research approach and a qualitative research method have been chosen for this study. In this way, in-depth answers can provide understanding to a phenomenon that is still partly undiscovered. To increase understanding in a broader environment than within one organization the multiple case study design is used for this study. Therefore, three managers from different firms participated in interviews, which is the basis for the empirical data. When the empirical data is combined with relevant theories it provides a basis for the analysis where the effects of drivers, barriers and international entrepreneurship are evaluated. This analysis provides a foundation for the conclusion that it is a necessity to combine traditional and new theories, with further empirical research, to fully understand why young domestic small and medium-sized enterprises decide to internationalize. When these are put together, it is possible to establish that barriers that are neglected by entrepreneurs are seemingly small impediments, in comparison to the drivers to reach success and the entrepreneurial urge to expand.

Internationalization of Higher Education in Kyrgyzstan

Dogochieva, Tolgonay January 2015 (has links)
The aim of this research is to find general trends and rationales for internationalization of higher education in Kyrgyzstan. The conceptual framework for this work is based on concepts developed by Knight and de Wit, Knight (2004). It used qualitative research, including secondary data and interviews. Although not very widely but internationalization became part of Kyrgyzstan higher education. There are student and staff mobility programs; the country hosts branches of foreign universities. Kyrgyzstan universities are creating extensive networks with world universities. Bologna process played major role in incorporating Kyrgyzstan education system to the world educational community. Kyrgyzstan has acquired international standards in terms of two-level cycle and credit hours. Along with that higher education is still facing problems and challenges. Corruption and low quality are among them. The study found that the most important rationale for internationalization is educational rationale. It is believed that internationalization improves academic quality. Economic, political and cultural/social rationales are also important.

Modalidades de ingreso de las Fast Fashion al Perú y los factores que influyen en la compra de prendas de vestir de marcas extranjeras frente a marcas locales en mujeres que viven en Lima Metropolitana de NSE B/C de 18 a 28 años de edad. Caso: H&M, Zara, Forever21, Michelle Belau, Topitop y DVK

Medina Flores, Guillermo Jhaziel, Valiente Redhead, Marjorie Alexandra 13 March 2019 (has links)
En el Perú existen empresas nacionales dedicadas a la industria textil, que aún no han decidido ampliar sus fronteras. Hoy en día tenemos un mercado saturado de marcas de prendas de vestir tanto nacionales como extranjeras. Esta investigación es transeccional, exploratoria y descriptiva. El propósito de esta investigación es conocer las modalidades de ingreso utilizadas por marcas fast fashion en su proceso de internacionalización, a fin de que las empresas nacionales puedan evaluar las estrategias utilizadas por las empresas fast fashion del estudio, y así utilizarlas en un futuro proceso de internacionalización. Además, se identificarán los factores de compra de prendas de vestir que influyen en mujeres que viven en Lima, que tienen entre 18-28 años y pertenecen a NSE B/C, cuando tienen que optar por una marca nacional vs una marca internacional. A partir de la investigación, se puede evidenciar que el modelo más utilizado por las fast fashion en su proceso de investigación es el de internacionalización incremental, el cual se acomoda más a la teoría de Uppsala, bajo las modalidades de franquicias y filiales propias. También, se puede afirmar que los factores de compras más influyentes en las mujeres limeñas en su proceso de compra de prendas de vestir son el factor moda, el factor diseño y el factor ambiente. / In Peru there are national companies dedicated to the textile industry, which have not decided to expand their borders yet. Nowadays we have a saturated clothing market with national and foreign brands. This research is transectional, exploratory and descriptive. The purpose of this investigation is made to know the modalities of entry used by fast fashion brands in their internationalization process, so national companies can evaluate the strategies used by the fast fashion companies of the research and use them in a future process of internationalization. In addition, identify the purchase factors that influence women living in Lima, who are between 18 and 28 years old and belong to NSE B/C, when they have to decide between a national brand against an international brand. From the research, the most used model by fast fashion companies in the research process is the incremental internationalization, which fits more to the Uppsala's theory, under the modalities of franchises and own subsidiaries. Besides, the most influential purchasing factors in women who lives in Lima in their process of buying clothing are the fashion factor, the design factor and the environment factor. / Tesis

However, no acceptable conclusion </p><p>has been made on how firms internationalized and what is factors influenced firms </p><p>choose their strategy. This development necessitates further study on the firms </p><p>internationalization and entry strategy. Hence the research was explorative in nature </p><p>and adductive approach was comprehensive adopted with interview. </p><p> </p><p>Further more, the firms have been using various approaches in entering their target </p><p>market. Some prefer to consolidate their position at home and concentrated their </p><p>efforts on exporting, while other took aggressive steps and invested directly in the </p><p>foreign market. Thus, the study examined the entry strategy of firms, and the factors </p><p>that influence the choice. This was aimed to gain deeper insight on how firms enter </p><p>the target market. From the findings, it was revealed that, Huawei had adopted </p><p>partnership, establishment of owned subsidiaries and make high technology </p><p>co-operation in the world, while the company resorted to strategic alliance and joint </p><p>venture after the China economic reformed till present moment. Moreover, we found </p><p>that the owner and management exerted their influence on strategic direction of the </p><p>firm, but the choice of entry strategy was mostly influenced by firm vision, business </p><p>offering, resources and capacity, while market conditions acted as exogenous factors.</p>

Kumlungsua, Nartlada January 2009 (has links)
<p>The purpose of this study is to investigate and describe the internationalization process of SMEs which choose strategic alliances as entry mode. Understanding the internationalization of small firms is important to enhance knowledge of how they develop their business activities in international markets. Moreover, a strategic alliance perspective gives a critical insight of firms’ strategy to challenge in global competition. </p><p>The qualitative approach is chosen to carry out the research question and achieve the purpose of this study. A case study is therefore used to generate advanced knowledge and understanding. Anoto group AB, a small Swedish company is picked as a sample due to the criteria fitting. I collected both secondary and primary data through various sources. </p><p> </p><p>The findings reveal that internal factors and external factors strongly influence the small company’s strategy. The advantage and core values of using strategic alliances motivate the small firm to go abroad. Due to the limited resources and knowledge, the small firm could not go globally alone. Using a strategic alliance can enable the firm to gain resources, gain market power and leverage competencies. Therefore, the small company can accomplish the goal in short time and be successful in international markets through managing alliances.</p>
