DescriptionIn recent decades, higher education institutions around the globe have been under pressure for performance evaluations. One major performance review is closely related to graduate employment, and higher education management is under intensified pressure for preparing their graduates for the highly competitive labour markets. Meanwhile, higher education institutions have confronted with the growing pressure for global rankings, which have adversely affected student learning when academics are chasing rankings and citations without caring student learning. This keynote presentation critically reflects upon the role of higher education against the context of the growing influences of neo-liberalism and geo-politics on higher education management. The importance of higher education is not only for job preparation for university graduates but nurturing young generation with cross-cultural understanding, empowering them to become caring citizens who are adaptive to the uncertain future. This keynote presentation will share Lingnan University experiences with highlights of the importance of comparative and international perspectives for student learning.
