Revitalizing the Soviet Higher Education Export

Comparative case study of international branch campuses (IBCs) in six post-Soviet countries

Last week I attended arguably the most important conference of my field of education, Comparative and International Education Society (CIES) Annual Conference organized between April 14–18, 2019 in San Francisco, California. CIES brings together more than 3,000 scholars, practitioners, and academics from over 120 countries. I was presenting my work on the Russian branch campuses in the former Soviet Union and the expansion of the network of satellite campuses since 1992.
