Universities' Responses to Globalisation: The Influence of Organisational Culture
Burnett, Sally-Ann; Huisman, Jeroen
Journal of Studies in International Education, v14 n2 p117-142 2010
This study sought to assess how and why some higher education institutions have responded to aspects of globalisation and, in particular how organisational culture influences universities' responses to globalisation. Using a predominantly qualitative, mixed-methods approach, empirical research was used to explore the impact of globalisation at four Canadian universities. A multiple, case-study approach was used to achieve a depth of understanding to establish the universities' culture, institutional strategies, and practices in response to globalisation. Several similarities and many differences were revealed in the institutional responses that are explained in terms of institutional culture. Suggestions are made for developing activities that would ensure culture becomes more entrepreneurial such that responses to globalisation are optimised. (Contains 4 figures, 5 tables and 1 note.)
