From the Publisher:

This book critically considers the current trend to global interactivity in the area of Higher Education and asks the question who is all this mobility meant to profit? Drawing a distinction between educational effectiveness and educational efficiency it argues strongly that the focus on student learning ought not to be lost in the international progression towards corporate universities.
