Policies and Strategies in Internationalizing the Hospitality Education in Taiwan

Hsiao-I Hou


This study presents a case study of internationalization processes currently underway in a public hospitality-specialized vocational university in Taiwan. The main purpose is to explore ways in which internationalization has evolved over time, and to learn what strategies the school has adopted to make it successful. In addition, challenges in internationalization that the school faces are identified. Three themes in internationalization are analyzed: (1) Institutional strategies of internationalization; (2) Cooperation and competition; (3) Mobility of students and academic staff. An in-depth critical analysis of this case allows for recommendations regarding institutional governance and operations in internationalization initiatives.
