A report released by the Observatory's Global Forum 2012 showed that the UAE hosts the highest number of International Branch Campuses (IBCs) of universities worldwide. The report also showed that the country's 37 IBCs make up a world share of 19per cent.
The Forum held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from 24-26 April, built its discussion around its report titled 'International Branch Campuses: Data and Developments' released in January 2012. The event featured plenary presentations, seminars and panel discussions on the practicalities of establishing and operating IBCs.
The challenges and opportunities of managing International Branch Campus (IBCs) were highlighted at the Forum 2012 by Dubai International Academic City, a member of TECOM Investments' Education Cluster that hosts 27 international universities.
The Observatory is a global strategic services organisation that conducts high-level research and disseminates emerging trends, best practices, policy frameworks, assessment and quality assurance information relevant to the delivery of cross-border higher education programme across the globe. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
