“Bigalke and Neubauer address the important topic of ‘quality of education’ in Asian higher education, which has garnered substantial interest among policy makers, academics, and institutions in countries throughout the region. The collection examines how rapidly higher education in the Asia/ Pacific region has been changing over the past decades and brings readers a broader view in this important area.”--Angela Yung-chi Hou, Research Fellow and Director of International Exchange, Higher Education Evaluation and Accreditation Council of Taiwan and Professor, Fu Jen Catholic University
