Abstract

As one of the consequences of globalization, the nature of higher education and universities has drastically changed. The shifts could be seen in the way most universities nowadays are aspired to be world-class, also in how international cooperation of university has become increasingly important. Written based on a qualitative research conducted through interviews and literature reviews, this paper discusses the dynamics of international cooperation management of universities in two ASEAN members, Indonesia and Thailand. In this paper, two countries are selected as a comparison with consideration that both are non-English speaking ASEAN member countries, that have their best universities enlisted in top regional even world university ranking. By using the assessment from the awareness, commitment, organizational structure and selection of partners and platform of international cooperation, the results show that to enhance the performance of international cooperation, universities could take notes in having a more serious approach especially in making a renewable direct statement or commitment for internationalization continuously that always try to catch up the challenges from external and internal forces. A better organizational structure and improvement should be also taken into account, in order to meet the expectations and efforts needed to achieve the vision, mission and goals of the institutions.
