The intention is to present general information not only to experts, but also to students and guests from outside the mathematical institutes.

Global Trends in Higher Education

Globalization, which calls for response among different sectors and stakeholders from around the world, brings opportunities along with challenges. Considering the complexities under globalization and issues confronting the society, today’s champion is the one who leverages on its own uniqueness while responding swiftly with visions. In the context of higher education, universities which stay competitive and flourishing are those that master the ever-changing altitude and remain focused on developing their clout.

As universities are being perceived widely as engines of economic growth, how do they strike a balance between traditions and new educational models, and how does HKUST position itself with the backdrop of such worldwide integration?
