Andrea Corese from Sapienza Università Di Roma fulfiled the seminars with the final section on “the Internationalization of Universities”. Corese conducted the session through open discussions. Interruption for questions and comments during the talk were welcomed to open up a platform for sharing ideas and experience. Corese first introduced to the participants the general picture of Sapienza University of Rome with its major international rankings. Then, he defined Internationlization as “the process of integrating an international, intercultural or global dimenstion into the purpose, function or delivery of postsecondary education” (Knight, 2003) or “integrating the institution and its key stakeholders – its students, faculty and staff – into a globalized world” (Hawawini, 2011).
