Abstract

This research wants to examine why Korean universities choose for internationalization and what kind of internationalization instruments they use. As the theoretical framework, a combination of the theories of neo-institutionalism and resource dependency was adopted to explain why universities decide for a specific set of internationalization instruments, i.e. what internal and external pressures can influence this decision. Due to their distinct dependencies and attitudes towards internationalization, it was expected that there are differences in the reasons for internationalization and the use of internationalization strategies among private/public and regional/metropolitan universities. Results show that there are indeed substantial differences, although factors like ranking position and history can play important roles as well. The most comprehensive set of internationalization instruments was found at the private metropolitan university that in addition had a high universities’ ranking position in the country.
