How to become a world class University

Producing world class education in the ASEAN region

Higher education in Asia is heading towards a defining period of time. With investment in Universities increasing, the playing field is beginning to level and an era of dominance by the United States and Europe could be coming to an end. The powerhouses in Asia have already found considerable success and attention is now turning to the ASEAN region and the huge potential the member nations have to offer. Higher education is a vital ingredient in enabling a successful economic integration in ASEAN and the Universities involved are all looking at strategies to drive successful outcomes.
