Some of what you expect Les compétences nécessaires pour devenir expert en internationalisation Strategic management of internationalisation. Améliorer l'enseignement et les services au sein de l'établissement Define a strategic plan that allows us to enforce organisational changes How to structure a new born IRO? Obstacles that might be triggered when academic agenda and organisational structure of the institution is required to be re-shaped as a result of integrating internationalization objectives to strategic planning. What skills an internationalization expert should have and how these skills can be utilized to put HEIs in developing countries in the international orbit. Je souhaiterais maîtriser les spécificités du processus d'internationalisation d'une université, sa gestion et ses outils de mise en place et sa réussite.
Introduction – Code of conduct • Be respectful. Respect everyone’s opinion and try not to interrupt. • What is worked within the group, stays within the group (we don’t mention other universities by name outside… ) • We let everyone participate in equal timings (one does not monopolize the word) • Using phones or email outside of course hours. • Be open, participative and sports!

1. Changing global demographics Isthepopulation in your country gettingyoungerorolder?
1. Changing global demographics • Declining birth rates in high income countries • Population growth is mainly in Asia, Africa and Latin America is in the middle • Labour shortage in “the West”
2. Increasing global studentmobility • Over 5 million students studying abroad (OECD 2015 report) • If the growth of the 2006-2012 period is extrapolated till 2025 the number would rise above 8 million (65% of these students come from Asia)

Leading places of origin per host country • In USA? • In Australia? • In Canada? • In the UK? • In New Zealand? • In Japan? • In China?
3. Higher education as a global market • Global demand for higher education exceeds availability • Rise of fees • Student as customer (HEI more service oriented and costumer protection!) • Increasing importance of rankings and branding. Competition! • English as the international HE language.
4. Changing role of governments • Declining funding - the user pays • Privatisation in higher education. • The benefits of internationalisation are increasingly clear to governments HEIs are pushed to internationalise
5. Non-traditional modes in IHE • Offshore teaching • Franchising programmes • Introduction of online delivery, online teaching, MOOCs – blended learning • Joint and double degrees • Different models of mobility • Study abroad tailor-made programmes
6. Strategic alliances, partnerships and networks • Research requires to work jointly with partners internationally more and more • International partnerships are ‘beyond student mobility.’ • You are as strong as your partner
7. Demand from employers • Value of international experience for employability is increasing according to and proven by research • Not only academic skills – soft skills!
