Abstract

Institutions of higher education have placed increasing importance on internationalizing their curricula over the past 10 years. The present work, through application of literature review and review of the Higher Education Framework for internationalization, presents a critical reflection of the challenges addressed in order a curriculum in Higher Education to be internationalized and provides a practical guide regarding the required steps that need to be followed. The example of internationalizing a business management curriculum is used in this study. The above assist educational leaders and educational decision makers to understand what is important to be considered when they plan, organize, design and implement activities for internationalizing a curriculum. The study also challenges that a more comprehensive framework is needed towards internationalization and through reflection upon personal experience provides practical guidance and recommendations to academics and educators how HE curricula can become international in context and in practice.
