For Indonesian higher education, it's time to grow up

Globalization is prompting many Asian governments to rethink higher education policy. They are enacting reforms and forging links with Western educational institutions. Yet Indonesia, Southeast Asia's largest country, remains reluctant to open up to the rest of the world, maintaining a protectionist attitude that is holding back its universities and its economy.

     Foreign universities are keen to establish beachheads in Asia, where a combination of rising incomes and favorable demography means that college enrollments are set to grow for years to come. Branch campuses, partnerships with local universities and online education offer these institutions an alternative to the traditional path of recruiting international students to attend the home campus.
