The internationalization of higher education systems represents nowadays one of the most important and increasingly complex forces in higher education development, due to the fact that the process of “knowledge exchange” aims to improve international competitiveness, a process closely related to national economic growth. In the last decades it has become one of the major goals of the development of higher education institutions around the world. As Allaway has already underlined in 1991, internationalization can no longer be considered an appendage of the academic environment but must be built into the core of its being. (Imprint: Nova)
