Abstract

In its bid to be at the forefront of higher education in the Arabian Gulf region, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has embarked upon major internationalisation initiatives. This paper documents the extent of these efforts in the light of observed challenges. Our paper provides some practical/social implications for foreign universities - past, present and future, contemplating 'breaking in' or 'out' as the case may be.

Keywords: branch campuses, franchise universities, higher education, United Arab Emirates (UAE)
